Display Your Cameras in Style with the HANGIE Wall Mount

If you consider your camera a work of art, this little item will let you treat it like one.

Most of us store our cameras in a gear bag where it can remain cool, safe, and out of sight—which is probably what we ought to do. However, if you'd like to put your gear candy (eye candy, but with gear, follow?) right on display, the HANGIE wall mount from LaudWorks will let you do so.

The HANGIE comes in various colors in both 3D-printed bronze-infused stainless steel and white nylon plastic. Mounting one to your wall requires only two screws, and the tripod mount screw is there to secure your camera. According to LaudWorks, the HANGIE mount was tested with a 3.3lb setup, a Canon 7D and an EF-S 17-55mm lens attachment, so it can handle pretty much any DSLR on the market, as well as any collectible cameras you might want to put on display.

The HANGIE was designed with camera collectors in mind, but if you've got zero space to store your cameras or if you just like the idea and look of hanging them on your wall, you might want to see what this little thing is all about.

The metal version is a little pricey at $21, but the plastic version, ideal for small, lightweight cameras, is just $4

I consider my camera to be a tool, much like I'd consider anyone who displayed their camera with one of these...

I logged in just to upvote that. (But seriously, thanks NFS, this is cool. I've got some old broken SLR's that might make good decorative pieces.)

So what you're suggesting is that someone with an old, obsolete camera handed down from Uncle Fred should be put away unseen in a closet, or that the old, obsolete camera handed down from Uncle Fred should be put to use despite the fact that film is no longer made for it? I just want to clarify which option is best to avoid being considered a tool by someone as influential as you. (Speaking of tools, is "keith" spelled with a lowercase "k" because you were too busy to use the shift key, or because it's some kind of artistic statement on the insignificance of individual in a faceless world of 7 billion+ plus people? Just wondering "keith.")

I actually bought a guitar holder to store my steadycam and it looks great and works like a charm! :)

This is an unnecessary No Film School post/article. Just takes up space. Its no good. Someone needs to know that.

I don't know, I think it's kind of a nice little light bit of editorial. It's certainly your right to express your opinion, but how much "space" did this take up? After I read the article I recycled all the digital bits and pixels and managed to save 99.735% of them for future use. Of course the article did take single-use minutes to read and comment on. Unfortunately in my case I almost certainly have fewer remaining minutes left in my account than you do, but I think it was a nice diversion and worth spending some of the small balance of lifetime I have left in my account.

Just wanted to say Thanks to NFS for all their hard work in providing me with a free place to review products and learn about the industry I so very much enjoy!

My wish is not to offend, but to those that feel they need to slam NFS or some one that finds this product useful, please remember that your perspective is not the only one, and not always fundamentally correct...this will make life for you and the ones you have to live and work with a lot easier!

I find this product actually quite useful as I have many retired SLR cameras that I believe are aesthetically beautiful and taking up shelf space in my editing suite...would be great to have them hung on the wall in a space efficient manner :)

I literally just pulled out a bunch of vintage cameras out of the storage room to hang in my studio as decoration. THIS is exactly what I needed!
Thanks V!

Keith and Wyatt...go troll elsewhere.
