Default Camera Mount For Picatinny Rail

I seem to recall seeing somewhere that a manufacturer made a video camera mount for a picatinny rail?

Anyone recall?

i dont know the demand for this product... but maybe if you can prove a demand, larue would be the guy for this with his amazing QD mounts

if your talking about using the "tripod skrew mount" that is generic on most cameras i would imagine that there is something out there, but i cant find it

If you can't find it pre-made, let me know and I can come up with a custom mount for mounting just about anything to just about anything.

I have seen it on a few websites and then when I went back to find it and
no-go! I remember seeing one that attatched to your picatinny rail and had a small I-Pod sort of recorder no sound just video. If I remember it was one of the vendors on Arfcom.

I'd like to make some videos such as what you see in this action sequence in this Russian movie 9th Company, the cameras mounted on the weapon give a neat perspective.

You can see in this video, it's a compliation of the movie done for a music video, at 1:30 second you can see the perspective I'm talking about, these are AK's but would be simliar for AR's.



Also that show on Military Channel called Special Ops uses some sort of mount that gives a similar perspective.

I dont think its necessarily a gun mount. Its like in the scary movies and shows where they want to capture faces. Its chest rig that mounts the camera in front of the face. If you mounted it to the gun small movements would make the shot off center. Fixing the mount to the torso would allow movement of the weapon. A forward facing camera weapon mount would be cool for a kill shot. Tap a qd mount to take whatever pitch tipod mount are.

I think your looking either Cabelas.com or sportsmensguide.com. I remember seeing those mounts with dapener to reduce shock for the video.

Not quite:

"Description - The ATC is a self-contained digital movie camera/recording device. The camera and electronics are housed in a rubber-armoured plastic body. The front rectangular lens is also protected by rubber armour, which also functions as a sun shade. The ATC looks identically externally to the one offered by Oregon Scientific, but they aren't the same internally. Originally, Pacific Concepts had intended to market the ATC as-is straight from the overseas factory and build a mount for it, but found that during testing, the camera would not withstand the recoil of mounting on a weapon. Pacific Concepts then went right to the overseas manufacturer and worked with them to modify the camera so that it would stand up to recoil. They then do further mods stateside when they arrive."

I've been looking at this one:

Contour HD 1080p Helmet Camera

There's a cheaper one too that shoots 720p.

If you don't want to go all-in-one, there are a ton of lipstick cameras which connect to a camcorder that would be easily mounted in a light mount.

If you just want a good digital camera you can mount check out goprocamera.com

I bought it for siding my motorcycle but looking forward to mounting it on my rifle for a little fun.

My brother gave me one of these for Christmas. It is TINY! I haven't used it yet or tried to attach it to a gun, but it shouldn't be that hard to do.
