Our newest rig and the one we recommend before any other – this is the one.
Waterproof – using the manufacturer’s camera housings. Extremely quick and simple to remove cameras to swap batteries, charge, copy data etc.
NO ADHESIVES HERE – backplates are attached using stainless steel hardware. Due to the way the housings hinge on the backplates, it is very easy to pop the cameras out.
Rugged. Easy. Awesome. The absolute best.
No worries about position changing due to adhesives like some other mounts use (nevermind the chance of losing cameras…) – this mount is rock solid and ready for whatever challenge you can throw at it.
Templates are available for Kolor, and Videostitch/PTGui. Of course you probably don’t need them and know the pitfalls of using predefined templates to stitch, but we are here to help.
This rig has 1/4-20 inserts on all 8 corners. When mounted in a vulnerable location (top of a vehicle) we like to add an eye bolt and a wire rope to ensure the rig and cams are not lost should it come loose from its mount. We haven’t had that happen, but you can’t put a price on peace of mind. Speaking of – this rig uses standard GoPro waterproof housings. If you trust the manufacturer’s design, you can trust this rig. And it doesn’t just fit GoPros – it also fits SJCam SJ4000 and similar cameras that happen to use the same size backplates as the GoPro Hero4.
The SVR-QD06 is still probably the rig for you if recording sound is essential – the ultra360 is made to always encase your cameras in their waterproof housings. What you get for this tradeoff is not having to ever adjust camera alignment – pop them in, snap ’em shut, and go. Plus the ruggedness that only comes from the OEM-spec waterproof housings. The most exciting footage tends to come from wet and/or dusty environments, and they present no challenge with this rig.
This model includes 6 waterproof housings for SJ4000-style cameras and is a ready-to-use rig; just add your cameras and whatever mounting solution you choose.
We also offer other configurations for you to use your own housings with, as most cameras include the waterproof housing so you likely already own these. That said, we offer the housings at a nice discount when purchased with the rig.
