SteadiCam is well-known for their high-end stabilizers used on Hollywood cameras, now you're able to bring some of that power home and on-the-go with an aluminum-framed GoPro mount (supports GoPro Hero 1, 2 and 3).
I get rid of the Velbon / Tiffen Quick Release plate to get additional stiffness to the camera. I also show the mount in more detail. It works better.

Technically it’s the prequel to The Lord of the Rings Trilogy.
But getting filming of The Hobbit off the ground in New Zealand -- has been a novel unto itself.
After setback on top of setback, Director Peter Jackson has called for quiet on the set.
Quiet, MTV reports, after a number of problems plagued creation of the film.
"Production on "The Hobbit" has been rife with its share of problems since Jackson first presented the idea to adapt it back in 1997...Jackson and New Line Cinemas were involved in a legal battle that eventually relegated Jackson to executive producer ...Then director Guillermo del Toro agreed to come onboard...but in May 2010, he said that he couldn't continue...even after Jackson was again confirmed as director...there were union disputes..that almost forced "The Hobbit" to relocate to a different filming area."
With hardly a frame shot, talk has already turned to just how expensive this epic prequel will be. 3News reports, the New Zealand government has offered huge tax breaks to keep the film in Kiwi territory.
Rachel Tiffen: "But it is not hard to understand why security is so tight. The two Lord of The Rings prequels are costing around $680 million to make, with perhaps a billion over time to our economy and the Government's pledged incentives and tax breaks of $100 million."
Fans only care about the box office. And from Middle Earth -- to the ends of the earth -- Hobbit fans everywhere are rejoicing at the idea of this film. Or, so says, Coventry Telegraph’s The Geek Files.
"There's been a worldwide sigh of relief ...Jackson has also launched a Facebook page which includes two new images of the filmmaker on set."
Movieline notes, it’s taken 75 years -- to get The Hobbit from the page to the screen, and we’re not there yet.
“...it’s easy to forget just how long this movie has been in production — and the minor miracle it is that not only is The Hobbit being filmed, but Peter Jackson is behind the camera.”
But don’t expect The Hobbit to find its way to the box office anytime soon. The BBC interviewed actor Martin Freeman who plays Bilbo Baggins. Freeman says, like all odyssey’s, this one, will take some time.
"There are some bits of bad luck associated with it. We're all very optimistic about it. We're ready to go - just as soon as 2015 comes around."
