Alrighty everybody, mount is built and it works PERFECT. I've decided not to sell the ball mount because they are cheaply made and will not hold up during rough turns or braking.


Pricing:

1-2 $36.00 + shipping
3-4 $35.00 + shipping
5-7 $34.00 + shipping
8-10 $33.00 + shipping

If you want the simple bolt, subtract $10 from the group buy price, ie. if there are 5 people buying and you want the simple bolt, your price is $24.00

Thanks!

Re: GI headrest camera mount

I was thinking of building my own headrest camera mount, since other ones seem to be $50+.

I think people would have more interest if you had a prototype of some sort.

You know how everyone looooves pics of everything on this forum. :lol:

Re: GI headrest camera mount

I would be interested. I too was going to make one out of the same material as you. That and a couple U bolts to headrest. Shouldn't cost more that $20 in material, just never got around to it. I would suggest that it only connect to the passenger seat and not both front seats. Some poeple (me for example) dont want to have to have the front seats at same position and angle, just a hassle.

That's a good point... I think it would be better if it would just attach to on seat's headrest and not on both.

thats a very good point. it will also make the assembly easier. I'm also looking at having a ball joint that attaches to the camera so it can swivel or be angled if you want to capture certain views.

its designed specifically for a digital camera. If your camera has the little 1/4 inch thread hole underneath, it'll work. Price will be much better than other cam mounts. I'll go ahead and put you on the list ;)

Ok, I'm gonna be ordering some parts soon so I'll have the first prototype soon. If that works out well, then I'll get sponsor status and start an official list! :)

If only two people are interested, then I'll still make them. So if you are really interested, stay tuned! Feel free to keep the thread alive :p

mazda3mods also has one with the same between the seat design..




.. just sayin' :lol:
[/quote]

the one they have for sale costs around 50 and has to use both head rests which requires the seats to be perfectly level with each other. also, it will only fit the mazda3. The one I'm planning on building will be cheaper and more versatile. It will utilize just the passenger seat headrest. The length between the rods on most headrests is the same from car to car, so my mount should work on more than just the 3.

Also, the one from mazda3mods is not adjustable. I'm working on finding a way to allow for any camera angle. :)

Re: GI headrest camera mount

BTW, I just ordered an 18 inch piece of rectangular tubing made of aluminum. I should have it by Friday when I go home.

Shipping sure aint cheap for those bitches so once I have a definite design down and become a sponsor, I'll get a group buy going. An obviously, I'll get a bigger discount on shipping depending on how many pieces I order. The more people buying, the cheaper I can sell this thing!

Keep the interest coming guys!!!! I'm really excited about this!
