The long and light pole cam 1.0 was upgraded to a wingnut for the jam nut today. This makes the removal of the GoPro attachment much quicker.
While at the hardware store I also picked up some thicker all thread to make a short and stout model capable of slinging the GF1. It went together well enough, but I will be shopping for a lighter ball head mount.
These are pretty good for prototyping, the all thread needs something to cover the edges though, I am thinking thin tubing?
