    using gopro mounts with a standard camera

    I'm hoping you guys can help I use a panasonic dmc-ft2 which is a great all round rugged camera but finding decent mounts for it ain't easy.

    I want to use the go pro mouting system but can't find a converter any ideas.

    I've found a gopro tripod addapter could this be modded to fit?

    heres a quick link my vids all made using my panasonic

    try this

    try: Drift Innovation Accessories | HD170 | Stealth | Launch Helmet Cams
    scroll to bottom of page:

    Drift GoPro Mount Adaptor
    in Drift VIO Oregon Scientific Twenty20 VHoldR Mounts Mounts


    The Drift GoPro Mount Adaptor allows you to mount a Drift camera to any GoPro mount including the adhesive based mounts and the chest harness mount. The Drift GoPro Mount Adaptor has a male 1/4" thread that screws in to the bottom of any Drift camera - the other end has the standard 2 x GoPro tabs that will connect to any GoPro mount. You can also use the Drift GoPro Mount Adaptor with any of the Contour cameras when used in conjunction with a Contour universal mount or a waterproof housing.

    (I'm just guessing but I would assume that your camera has a threaded mount screw on the bottom)

    perhaps too late but I posted up pictures and mods to make a GoPro tripod adaptor fit a Panasonic point and shoot.
