One of my good buddies Sergey is a badass tinkerer. I, on the other hand, can't tie a bowline.
He's been making a ton of videos on his site videojibe for years using multitudes of mounting mechanisms, optical options and compression codecs.
His latest iteration is a super simple mast mount for the GOPRO camera that is lightweight and easy to set up. I'll give it a test in the next couple weeks to share with you all. The coolest thing is that this is a mount that you can buy. Check it out here!
