Features

  • Triple suction guarantees stability.
  • Eliminates vibration for professional still & video recording.
  • Rated for DSLRs & camcorders up to 8lbs.

Description

If you're shooting with a heavier DSLR and lens combination or just aiming to get the most stability for video shoots, our Fat Gecko Tripod Mount is just the ticket. Three industrial locking suction cups adjust to the contour of your shooting surface, then tighten and lock into place to create our most stable mount yet. With six adjustable points, it's easy to set up a customized angle that gets you a unique (and otherwise unattainable) shot for every shooting situation. The standard 1/4-20-Inch tripod head creates a reliable connection with your camera and includes a rubber washer with a tightening knob to dampen vibration even further in wind or from moving shooting surfaces. The 3-Arm Mount couples a Fat Gecko Original with a Fat Gecko Mini and creates a 3-point mount for increased stability on moving objects or in harsh conditions. A slide & lock design creates secure attachment between the two mounts and sturdy contact with any smooth, non-porous surface.

abunda_amazon_reviews I bought this for a far more mundane task than you guys: Securely mounting my very light weight humble dash cam inside my windshield. The suction cup that came with the dash cam kept falling off and each time I touched the dash cam the mounting bracket shifted so I'd have to reposition the camera. Not with this mounting bracket. As I learned later (guys read instructions afterwards), removing the suction cup is almost impossible unless you have access to the tab. I didn't, so I had to use a thin tapered plastic utensil to pry the suction cup off of the windshield. The directions state to position the tab downwards for easier access but I couldn't see how that could be done for the interior windshield. The dash cam is now rock solid firmly attached to the windshield and to the camera so I can now touch the buttons on the camera without moving the camera's orientation. I did buy another Delkin Fat Gecko Mount DDMOUNT-STEALTH for the rear dash cam since that suction cup falls off when the temperature of the car's interior goes into the triple digits and the stock suction cup mount is also awful. Too bad that Delkin doesn't list the usable temperature range of the suction cup. I took a chance and if they fall off in the next week or two when it gets scorching hot, they're going back. Even though the suction cup is way bigger than the stock 5.5cm suction cup that came with the dash can, I was able to position the camera closer to the center of the windshield for a slightly better perspective. UPDATE 8/30/17 We finally received some blistering heat and sun weather. The interior of the vehicle was as hot as an oven. The suction cups didn't fall off.

Waste of money!;;Tamra Rochetto;;/gp/customer-reviews/R24NMM1CKTAHMB/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B00A86MMY8;;;I bought this camera mount three years ago for use with my DSLR but to be honest I hardly ever used it until this year. I was always super paranoid about using it on the outside of a moving car with my DSLR, even after using it many times mounting it on the inside of a car (it never fell off or anything). Recently I mounted a GoPro onto the windshield of a Jeep and took it offroading. After 45 minutes or so of intense bumping and going over rough terrain, rocks and hills, this thing didn't budge! Make sure when you mount it the surface is clean and the suction cups aren't on top of any dirt, mud or other road junk. Also make sure it's not on top of any stickers or decals. I've found that the best way to mount it is to first loosen the knobs that control the angle for the suction cups, then once suctioned down, tighten those knobs. This thing is great and I don't regret getting one with three suction cups at all. I actually think the two suction cup model like this one gives you better flexibility and mounting options, especially when using a smaller/lighter camera (like a GoPro). After three years, this offroading test was the definitive test for me. I also left it on the windshield of the Jeep as we made our way back into town (make sure it's legal to mount a camera on the outside of a vehicle in your town/city/state). After this test I no longer have any worries of mounting this on the exterior of a moving vehicle with a small camera. Things to keep in mind: a GoPro in the waterproof case is nearly indestructible. Look up on YouTube the video of a skydiver accidentally dropping one out of a plane. It lands in a pig pen on a farm and is totally still functional (a pig actually tries to eat it - unsuccessfully, I might add). So even in a worst case scenario, the mount falls off the vehicle in some way, your GoPro will likely be fine. Even though I bought this originally to use with my DSLR I still have some reservations about mounting a DSLR on the exterior of a moving vehicle, simply due to the added weight. To be honest, even though this mount can support a DSLR, I think the use of an action cam like a GoPro is better anyway. I believe this simply because with a DSLR recording video you'll have no way of manually adjusting your camera settings; something you'll often need to do as the setting and lighting changes. With something like a GoPro the auto settings will adjust things accordingly (not perfectly, and I'm definitely a fan of shooting in all manual mode normally, but it's good enough). Of course this will depend on your specific needs, and I'm sure using one with a DSLR will probably turn out just fine. I would certainly buy this product again. And if I get additional GoPros then I definitely will so I can mount cameras all over the interior and exterior of a moving vehicle, instead of having to shoot things multiple times for each mounting position.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 28, 2017;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Very durable;;C.
