Mounts and Tripods for the 360fly Camera

The Arkon CMPHD006 is an excellent choice for the 360fly CameraThe 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 the 360fly Camera.  Just screw the 360fly Camera onto the tripod and adjust the head to the right angle.  If you are going to use this traditional tripod, place it in an area where it will not get knocked over.  The 360fly Camera is easy to install and remove from the tripod.  Just a matter of turning it so the tripod screw engages or disengages.

You can use a stationary flat surface mount for the 360fly Camera.  The Arkon Camera Wall Mount for CCTV POV Camcorders Cameras  is a good heavy duty choice for heavy cameras that need support from the bottom.  This is a wall mount.  Attach this metal mount to a wall and use the three adjustment points to get the proper angle.  The head rotates and swivels.  This one comes with a 2-year warranty and includes screws for mounting.

The RAM Mount Twist Lock Suction Cup Mount for Cameras is a mount for use on smooth flat surfaces that aren’t porous.  This mount is great for attaching to glass or metal (not for a wall).  There is a heavy duty 3.3 inch locking suction cup and two adjustment points.  The camera adapter has a nice wide 2.5 inch support base for the 360fly Camera.  You can even use this on a glass table top to give the 360fly Camera a badly needed boost upwards to avoid getting the edge of the table in the video.  This mount has a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer.

There are many camera mounts available for a handlebar but they aren’t all well suited for motorcycle use.  You need a well made mount.  A camera has a unique requirement which is to minimize vibration.  Buying a plastic mount with a tripod screw embedded is likely to yield a very shaky video.  Get a mount that has vibration dampening technology.

The RAM Handlebar Rail Mount for Cameras has been proven over many years to be an excellent choice.  This is made of metal.  It fits a handlebar up to 1.25 inch diameter and has a small support platform built into the adapter head.  The mount pivots and swivels.  You will likely need to mount a camera fairly high up on the handlebar to get an unobstructed view.  The mount is built upon a ball and socket concept and that’s where the vibration dampening feature comes into play.  These mounts have a lifetime warranty.

A variety of body mounts are also available including the helmet and chest. In fact, 360Fly makes their own mounts for the body.

So there you have it.  Lots of choices for a 360Fly Camera mount.
