heliM and insane achery cam mount............
my insane archery cam mount came in yesterday, tried it out this morning with the playsport mounted, still some vibration..........any suggestions ?
Unfortunately you're going to get vibration with any bow-mounted camera. It's just the nature of the beast. Overall I don't think it's too bad though. I watched your video and you seem to stay on the target well after the shot, which is key to getting good footage with this type of setup.
Good luck with it this fall!
Is the camera all the way at the end of the mount?
If you have room bring it back toward to bow a bit at a time, you'll probably find a sweet spot that has less vibration than the end.
Here's how far I was able to move mine in (partly for vibration, but mainly so I can reach my phone screen with my bowhand at full draw )
very observant , yep it was kinda toward the end of the mount , kinda like being on the end of a diving board !!!

Reason: spelling mistake
I tried this with the Moultrie Reaction Cam and was not satisfied with the results. I also tried the cam on the brim of my hat which was better but still not satisfied. I'm going back to the best set-up.....camera mount on the end of treestand using your camcorder. No vibration there but you have to be more cautious of movement.
Fitz you got any footage with the iphone and mount you could share ? Thanks !
I do, but it's from the day I got it. I think I had it at the end of the bracket then. I'm uploading it to YouTube right now & I'll post it when it's done....
ky_longbow - Fitz gave you the correct advice and your "diving board" analogy is exactly correct. Also, make sure everything is all tightened securely to your bow. Lastly, I'm not sure where you have it attached to your bow, but if it's over the stabilizer try attaching it to the riser. That seems to be a more solid location on some bow setups. Regarding your stripped threads, I can replace your threads with a 1/4"-20 steel threaded insert and it'll be absolutely rock solid. If your using a Kodak PlaySport Zx3, I also have a Cradle on my website that will increase the footprint of the camera dramatically - http://insanearchery.com/cradle.html. Send me a PM if you want further information on the steel insert. Good luck! And thank you for the help Fitz, I appreciate it!!
