After acquiring my first ever GoPro camera, I knew I wanted to get as many unique camera angles as I could shoot. This led me to experiment with a couple of lame prototype rigs that didn't pan out too well, and I had to re-think my strategy.
I eventually took my trusty camelbak, and combined it with an old tripod that I had stashed away forever.
In this instructable I will show you how I was able to make this rig using only simple tools and techniques.
EDIT: Thanks for all the interest in this mount!
I just remembered that you can remove the leg and have an extendable GoPole as well as a backpack mount.
Step 1: Getting Started
You will need a couple of things to make this rig work:
-A backpack with multiple straps on the back(I used my trusty Camelbak outlaw, quite possibly the best mulch-purpose sports bag I own)
-GoPro's Handlebar mount
-Tripod(Slik AMT, this was a very good tripod to use as the legs have good range of motion and can be dismantled very easily)
-Spacer: Either a wood spacer, or a pool noodle works fine.
- 3/4" Gear clamp
-12" Bungee cord
-screwdriver with Hex bits.
-Roll of hockey tape
This is the equipment and parts I used for the rig, and I am unsure of what bags/tripods can be substituted for one another
