I was thinking of using some duct tape and wires to get this shot that I have in mind, but I believe I just found a way to get the same shot without all the mess LOL. I’m a hard working amateur film maker, I never said I was a DIY expert 😛
I don’t know how hard this thing will hold, but I need to rig it to the back of my pickup truck to film a sequence at about 30 to 40 miles an hour on a dirt road. I should probably grab a protective cover for the camera in case the whole rig flies off the truck. It looks tough though, so I’m gonna trust that it’ll do well.
Make sure you use a tether if you’re risking losing your camera.
I used metal spring clamps and stainless hardware. I also mounted my camera in front of the pivot point. It’s clamped onto almost anything I needed. I made a smaller version. It clamps much better onto smallish round objects.
Nice but needs modification. There is *nothing* locking the tripod adapter to the bolt. Vibration could easily loosen it and/or cause it to fall off the clamp.
A simple fender washer with 1/4″ hole against the bottom of the tri-pod mount and then another wing nut (no tools required to tighten/loosen) should hold it tighter.
