, overrated? You must not have noticed the Kool-Aid stain on the table. Pure pop art.
, good suggestions. I'm definitely going to file those corners and edges, and I probably will update the grip at some point. Although I have to say, right now, my gloves grip even the bare aluminum pretty easily.
, I like your setup. Nice and simple, but a better pole than I used. Any problems with the mount staying put?
, thanks, I actually have since ordered the same setup you have from Amazon. I had originally been considering the $29 pole from Eye Of Mine, or an extending pole like the Quikpod or XShot, but the one from Eye Of Mine was out of stock and the others look fragile (no locks). I like your use of a monopod instead. Unfortunately, the tripod adapter is out of stock so I'm waiting, but I have my DIY in the meantime
, no worries, the pole is actually pretty light (whole setup without camera weighs about 9 oz), although maybe you were referring to the fact that it doesn't telescope? That is definitely a drawback. With the GoPro on the end does get heavy after a while. I did manage to use it for a few hours without too much fatigue though.
