The adjustable scotty camera mount is out in full force. Looks pretty cool has gopro and normal camera mount on it. Can mount into scotty or lock it to any pole.

Thanks iPop. Just wanted to show you how it looks when transferred out of the gear head extender.





Thanks Trident. I had a look at it too.

I communicated with Scotty that Ram, X-shot and Delkin had mounts for cameras and they didn't have one yet.
Before they came up with this, I actually showed them this (and other stuff) in the hope that it was a novel idea.
They told me they had similar things in the works.
I'll just post some of them under kayak modifications :-)

Fishnhound,

That's neat that you got it with you. I'll pass by the local shop to see if they have it or order it if they don't.

From the looks of the pics, the mount doesn't tilt sideways with the GoPro on.
It seems that the angle of the camera is fixed and is dependent on the level of the base mount.
On second thought, you can add another GoPro 90 deg rotation extender to make it tilt sideways.

To make a camera tilt, just attach it after rotating it 90 deg on it's axis.

 Your thoughts please.

thanks in advance.

Right on picks would be good. I find myself staring at sites trying to plan good mounting options. Finished product would help. Princess auto is full of useful crap.

Just picked a cpr mount up, fits into scotty easily and can be used with or without the flex arm which also seems to be sturdy, it has an expansion locking system on the base which can lock it directly into a rod holder or tube between 1 5/8 and 2 inch. It is salt water and corrosion proof and throughout seems solid. The case is extremely large and probably not made for the cpr (if Im wrong its badly designed) on the other hand with a sharp knife it stores a hummingbird 385 perfectly, next stop spring and hopefully decent photos this year
Attached a couple of pics but not got it on the yak yet

Hi Tim,
How far away from the boat will the cpr mount take the camera?

Hi Alan
If you mount the base straight up and down into a scotty the flex arm will take the camera out about 12-14 inches, yet if you mount the base side on into a scotty or tube anywhere between about 15-30 inches depending if you use the flex arm, Im thinking side on with the flex bent down should do good for underwater shots.

Regards
Tim
