Alternative Mounts for the GoPro HERO Session and HERO5 Session

The GoPro HERO Session and GoPro HERO5 Session are the latest in a series of smaller action cameras introduced by GoPro.  The major difference between these two cameras is video quality.  The lower priced GoPro HERO Session delivers 1440p video where the GoPro HERO5 Session shoots 4K video.

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

Car and Motorcycle Mounts for the Moto Z Smartphone

Magellan eXplorist TRX7 Mounts for ATV, UTV and 4x4s

We do not write much about Magellan devices.  No longer the large player they were ten years back, they have a much smaller distribution versus their competition.  The Magellan eXplorist TRX7 was introduced a short time ago to fill an interesting void.  The intended audience of the Magellan eXplorist TRX7 is the off-road crowd.  We’re talking about a 4×4, UTV or ATV vehicle.

Garmin GPSMAP 276Cx Mounts for Boats, Cars and Other Places

One of the longest life Garmin model series I have seen was the old GPSMAP series from over ten years ago.  The initial marketing was for marine use.  The devices doubled as a car GPS and marine chartplotter.  Soon, they also began to show up in cars and even on handlebars.  A lot of these devices are in use today and that’s probably why they introduced the Garmin GPSMAP 276Cx.  It’s probably time for an upgrade if still using a GPS from over ten years ago so why not stick with the beloved GPSMAP series. The new Garmin GPSMAP 276Cx … Read more
