Gimbals That Fit This Camera

Mounting and Form

Mounting and Form

Your action camera's most important feature is how it will mount to you, your vehicles and other parts of your activities. Below we look at how this camera fits to certain mounts and what it's mounting setup is.

There are two main mounting systems, the GoPro (2 to 3 fin mount) and the 1/4" (quarter inch) thread mount.

When we decide how each camera is mounted, we talk about it's form, whether it would fit to a certain popular mounting type, such as on the chest, head or in-hand and whether there was a mounting type for this too.

Mount Type on Camera Body
quarter inch 1/4" thread tripod mount

This camera has a female 1/4" thread and accepts a universal 1/4" threaded male mount, which you screw in to the camera, just like what a tripod comes with at the top. If the camera only has this mount option, you can get a tripod mount to action camera adapter to open up the world of gopro (2 to 3 fin) mount options.
