Go Pro Setups


Santa brought me a GOPRO Hero3.  I have watched many different FS videos and want to know how folks setup their cameras for the best view (mounts, position etc).  I am sure I could mount on the tiller, but the potential for a video of the skipper's ample posterior would notmake for good theater.

Any pictures would be most helpful.

Go Pro Setup

I mount mine on the tiller, just aft of where the tiller extention "ends".

This is the view youget....



Which mount do you use?

Which mount do you use? Adhesive mount?  Or have you bolted a mount on the tiller?

GoPro Mount

I used the adhesive "flat" mount, but then I got nervous, so I drilled two countersunk holes, and used wood screws as an extra precaution.  I also have a tether on the case that is looped around the tiller.  

Camera case flotation

Be advised, the flotation 'pillow' only has enough buoyancy to float the camera and its case...not strong enough to float a mount. So the tether is very important.
