Portable Camera Mounts

By Derek Ward, Published Aug 20, 2013, 12:00am EDT (Info+)

When doing temporary deployments or testing out cameras, using portable mounts can make setup easier and quicker, especially when trying different spots or angles. At IPVM, we use a number of them as Nasty (Mod) Clamps [link no longer available] , Gorilla Pods, and Ram Mounts. This note reviews these portable camera mounts including their applications, tradeoffs and price.

Below is a picture of all three mounts set up in our office:
