Lightbulb DIY: Custom Camera Mount for Boat

Well, I got tired of lugging a tri-pod around in my boat for filming and taking pictures. So; I modified some scrap parts an made a camera mount for my boat. My only worry is that it may be sensitive to boat vibrations. I may have to add a damper or gyro to help it stay even keeled.

I bought the flex-support & mount at Radioshack for a couple of $$. Taped and threaded the inside of the support. Threaded and added a short piece of rod that would mount in to an old tripod base. It can easily be removed by just unscrewing from the mount base. Also; you can buy extra mounts at Radioshack for super cheap to have multiple mounting locations.

Thought I would share...
“Every human has four endowments- self awareness, conscience, independent will, & creative imagination.
These give us the ultimate human freedom... The
to choose, to respond, to change.”
