    Default DIY Camera Mount

    Looking to put one together with my dad - he comes up with all sorts of random ways to make things work and I have seen some threads over at AT about it. Just wondering what you guys think of these options in terms of holding my phone (HD video capable) Incredible2?








    The last 2 are the same one, front back - I have a feeling that might be the best option but didn't know if anyone has had any first hand experience putting one of these together yet. We already have a piece and a plan for the bracket that will mount up at the stabilizer. This is just the missing piece.

    And here I thought I was gonna see a trail cam mount. So, going to mount your phone to your bow? Make sure that you turn the ring tone off. Looks a lot like the dash mount for my Explorist 500LE gps. Hope it works out, could be THE next big thing.

    Yes sir, phone will be going on the bow. There are actually quite a few threads over on AT about guys that have already done it and one guy that is actually marketing a product for the iphone 4 - he hasn't figured out how to tone down the vibration though at the shot, that is something I'll be looking to snug up as much as possible.

    Extra lame! Do they have a rule about engaging wild game too? Like you must announce your presence before shooting?

    Clip should be delivered soon - as soon as that gets in, I'll have it rigged up and post pictures and video of how it all turned out.
