Editor's Notes

November 05, 2019:

Putting together a nice selection of clamps and mounts, we wanted to make sure we were providing a list that offers great options for a variety of camera types and shooting situations, though it's clear that a lot of the models on our list could work with action cams like the GoPro. These include models by GoPro directly, like the GoPro Suction Cup and the GoPro Head Strap And QuickClip, as well as aftermarket options like the small clamps that come with both 1/4 20 screw heads and cold shoe mount adapters.

We also wanted to make sure we included a good shoulder mount, but one that wasn't prohibitively expensive, and we found that in the Neewer Video Shoulder Kit.

On a personal note, I've long relied on the Pedco Ultraclamp, and can speak to its durability and ease of use, even though I predominantly use it to set up wireless speedlights for off-axis lighting of live events like weddings and concerts.

Special Honors

MyPilot Pro Airplane Swivel This model comes from a company that was founded by pilots, and whose products are intended to survive the unforgiving wind speeds and vibrations that you might encounter above the clouds. It's made from a combination of aluminum and stainless steel, with neoprene washers and an aircraft-grade base.

ProAm USA Vehicle Vibration Isolator If you want to shoot cinematic videos of your characters driving and talking in a car, this model can provide a particularly smooth image. That's thanks to an innovative wire system that absorbs shocks sent up from the road and negates them before they can reach your camera. Its platform offers a number of open screw holes for customizing your rig.
