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…

Mounts for the VSN Mobil V.360 HD Camera

The VSN Mobil V.360 HD Camera is amazing.  The camera has some unique features that I haven’t seen in any other camera.  The V.360 Camera allows recording of 360 degree videos at up to 30 frames per second with a 60 degree vertical field of view at an impressive 6480 x 1080 HD.  For still photos, the V.360 supports capture of high resolution 360 degree 8MP panoramic images, even while recording a video.

Mounts for Indian Motorcycles

Indian motorcycles were first produced in 1901.  At one point in the early 1900’s, Indian was the largest manufacturer of motorcycles in the world.  A lot of things changed in the motorcycle world over the next 50 years and the Indian Motorcycle Manufacturing Company went bankrupt in 1953.  A number of companies tried to revive the brand over the years with little success until 2011 when a major manufacturer took it over.  In 2011, Polaris Industries resurrected the brand.  Comparing the new Indian motorcycles to their older counterparts, I would say that Polaris has done a great job at continuing … Read more…

Mounts for Aprilia Motorcycles

Today we are discussing mounts available for Aprilia motorcycles.  Aprilia makes a large array of bikes that range from small-capacity motorcycles and scooters to large sport bikes such as the V4 RSV4.  Their popularity has been increasing partly because of considerable success on the racing circuit.  Here in New Jersey, you don’t see many people using scooters as you will likely get blown off the highway but we do see an occasional Aprilia full-sized motorcycle.

Mounts for the Polaroid XS100 and XS80 Action Cameras

All the hype regarding the GoPro action camera series is well deserved, but I’m not sure about the price being well deserved.  As of the writing of this article, I see the GoPro HERO4 Silver selling for almost $400.  That is a huge sum of money to pay for a small action camera.  A lot of people may be unaware that Polaroid has a pretty robust line of action cameras.  While the specs are somewhat less than the latest and greatest GoPro HERO4 Silver, the Polaroid XS100 comes close and in some cases surpass some of the prior generations as … Read more…

Car Headrest Mounts for Tablets, Phones and Cameras
