Introduction: Floating Camera Mount for Underwater Video
This is a simple camera mount for under water video, that floats to the surface if you drop it. I got the idea from a mixture of different mounts and bobbers but a good bit of the credit for the idea goes too mcogan and their Underwater camera mount. Hopefully this is use full to you and you have fun making it!!
Step 1: What You Will Need
Materials: One small pop bottle (I think I used 250ml)
One 1/4 inch bolt, two matching nuts and one washer
Tape (Only if you are painting)
Spray paint (Also only if you are painting) I used a form of truck Bedliner for more grip
Camera an underwater one if you are using it for that
Tools: Drill with 1/4 in bit or a sharp pointed knife
Screwdriver to match the bolt you use
Pliers or wrench to match the nut you are using
Step 2: Drill Hole in Cap
Simply drill or shave out a hole with your knife or drill in the center of the lid. Easy eh
Step 3: Attach Camera Mount
Now put one nut on the bolt then push the bolt through the cap, Now put a washer on the bolt then the last nut and tighten well with your screwdriver and pliers. Now you are done, If you want to paint it go to the next step. If not Thank you for reading hope this is useful to you!!
Step 4: Optional Step/Paint
Now if you want to paint it, all you have to do is wrap tape tightly around the bolt on top but not the nut, Then hang it from something and spray the paint on in short blasts about 5 to 10 inches away from the bottle and then let it dry for at least 24 hours. Once the paint is dry it is ready to use.
Step 5: You're Done!!
Now you've finished and its time to go use it, Have fun and enjoy the nice smooth video you will get!! Thanks for reading!! Hopefully this is useful to you!!
