New Scooter Camera Mount... and Tripod

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I came across this new camera mount from Dive-Xtras.

Two version: a lightweight for action cam & mirrorless and a pro version for bigger rigs.

The interesting thing is that it could be used as tripod and the light one has a ball mount! Never seen before underwater.

 It's a shame the pro hasn't got the ball mount. 

I always wanted to do frontal shots at very low speed with the camera pointed downwards

It looks really promising

There are two versions.   The one with the balls is not designed for long arms, heavy lights and strobes, but only for  very lightweight rigs (go pros, point and shoots) with correspondingly small lighting.

The big version is for the big rigs, where the lighting is connected to the camera housing in the traditional way and not to the camera mount.

I have the prior version of their pro mount which mounts via  a cam band and not the straps, and I actually prefer that overall, although the arca release  plate on this new  one looks even more robust than mine.

I mount a Nauticam housing for Sony full frame plus a port, and the  WWL 1 lens, plus long arms, retra strobes, and a video light, and it is a big and heavy rig (not as bad though as a DSLR with a dome) and even my version of the older pro mount takes it all very well.  Scootering with it is a pure joy compared  to kicking it around, especially in a current.

The new  small one  looks phenomenal as a tripod for stationary work.  But, I think the allen screws shown on the pro could be removed and  a ball mounted there if desired.  Would  be worth asking Dive-X about that.

OOPS!  Just watched the video.  Indeed, balls can be added to the pro mount where the allen screw is.
