Mounts and Tripods for the 360fly Camera

The 360Fly camera is currently available in two different models.  Both models share a common mounting method which is enabled with a 1/4″ – 20 threaded screw hole.  This screw hole is common to a tripod as well as most camera mounts. The 360Fly isn’t the lightest camera in the world nor is it the least expensive.  Use a heavy duty mount that’s made to hold the camera steadily and reliably. Let’s look at some mounts and tripods for the 360fly Camera. Care for a basic tripod?  Consider the Ravelli APLT4 61-inch Light Weight Aluminum Tripod With Bag which works fine with … Read more…

Home Mounts and Tripods for Foscam Pan and Tilt Cameras

My first purchase of this brand was the Foscam FI8910W Indoor Pan/Tilt Wi-Fi Camera.  A good camera to customize but somewhat difficult to work with.  Unlike consumer oriented cameras such as a Nest Cam, these are made for customers with an IT background.  It’s not something that you can intuitively setup and get working out of the box without reading the instructions.  Even after reading the instructions, you need to poke around the internet to find things out.

Outdoor Home Security Camera Mounts

Several well known security camera manufacturers have recently introduced models that are made to work outdoors.  An excellent example is the Arlo Smart Home Security Camera.  Like most outdoor cameras, these are waterproof and made to withstand typical weather elements such as snow, ice and rain.  Today we discuss outdoor home security camera mounts.

Arkon has been in business for a long time making affordable mounts.  They were quick to recognize that the devices they make mounts for goes out of style quickly and have expanded their line to offer mounts for things people want to mount when they want to mount it.  Going back ten years ago, cameras were the size of a toaster.  Mounting a Polaroid on a motorcycle or within your car simply was not an option.  Today everybody has a camera on their phone or for a small investment now own small action videocams that are used to video their … Read more…
