Dome Wall Brackets

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on May 22, 2013

A member asked: "Does anyone make an outdoor mount like this that will fit on a high-quality camera?" Plus, it needs to be a 'universal' mount, not specified for a specific model.

This question brings up several interesting points because small details can lead to big problems. Why would you choose this type of bracket? Where do they make the most sense? We answer those questions and more in this note.
