Here is a little bit about the new GoPro Mount and how much it costs:

The Wide Open Camera Mount will work with All GoPro Camera Models From The HD Hero through the newest Hero 3+. We worked with Snake River Prototyping to create the most versatile mount for the GoPro. The WOC mount is a modular system consisting of a base unit $45 US and two Arms $23 Each. The Base unit has 2-1/4" threaded mounts, 1-3/8" threaded mount and a 1/4" non threaded hole that will allow the use of a male bolt or wood screw to mount to almost anything. The Kit includes the base unit and two arms. $78.

The camera is secured with the included stainless steel mounting bolt through the GoPro underwater housing two pronged base. 

The Arms have 2-1/4" mounting threads and can be added separately or together to add additional mounting points. Each Arm is secured with two stainless steel mounting bolts, included.

We designed the Wide Open Camera Mount to be the last mount you will ever need for GoPro cameras.

I can't see the point of these GoPro mounts, what are they supposed offer on top of the waterproof housing?

Also I thought the cult of Philip Bloom had died out after everyone had seen him for the none film maker, moneyblogger he really is.

Thanks for checking it out! The WOC mount will allow you to mount the GoPro with multiple points of contact. This is great for car rigs and other moving shots. It also has a through hole that will let you use a male screw to mount almost anywhere. I hope this answers your question.

Man... this GP mount is insane... WHY do I need one of these?
At $80 is not that reasonable, maybe $10 at tops.
Heheh
PB is a non-film maker?
I sort of agree to a point, but he's very useful for review some products. He makes PB kind of films :)

There is a lot of interest in the BM4K right now and I am certain there's many people that will want to see this video. That's why I posted it.

Thanks for posting this. I wanted to see what the BM4K could do with good lenses and HARD lighting.

As for the GoPro stuff, very cool mounts for great prices!

You're a bully Baz.

It's somewhat odd that a website that promotes anti-bullying movies won't stop the bullying in its own comment threads.

I've read that the 2.0 version of this blog will be deleting personal attacks. We can only hope that true since this current 1.0 version leaves personal attack comments like yours up.

Don't want to hijack this thread, but what evidence is there that Phillip Bloom is a "non-film maker?"
He certainly doesn't blog much (one entry per week or two).
And, I've seen a number of his films.
Thanks.

This is just how the internet works. People saying things that they would never day saying in the face of the person being insulted and hiding under aliases.

Back to topic

Hard to see how those cages are really useful. I've used go pros in extreme conditions without a cage with no problem. However concidering that you need to buy a tripod mount anyway for the go pro this is not too bad to get a few extra mounting holes on your gopro.

Thanks for checking it out! We got tired of the plastic tripod mount and wanted something with multiple points of contact for car mounts. It also help to protect the camera.
Thanks!

I must admit the go pro tripod mount does not feel like a very solid piece of kit :-)

Yes, it's true, there's closet bullies that come out on the internet and say ugly things. The thing I can't figure is why this web site doesn't put the ugliness to an end.
