The man behind twin-tip shapes, baseless bindings, and Camp of Champions summer snowboard camp has a solution to many of the restrictions that come with action camera mounting systems. Pro Standard Founder Ken Achenbach developed the 360 Quick Connect Camera Mounting System, which is designed to eliminate hassles associated with the bolts found in other mounting systems to expedite moving cameras between mounts, enable users to rotate cameras at any angle without limitations, and has angle markings that tell users exactly where the camera is positioned so they can reset the perfect angles and recreate the perfect shots. The new mounting system works with all GoPro mounts and accessories, which issues a sigh of relief since there are so many mounts and accessories yet no fast, simple way to change from one to another.
According to Achenbach, “I wanted to put my GoPro on any angle while it’s on any mount and be able to adjust that angle on the fly so I could up my ‘good shot’ ratio. My 360 Quick Connect means you can spend more time shooting and less time screwing around with the GoPro bolt. You can switch mounts in less time than it takes to click the Like button. You never have to mess with the GoPro Bolt after you mount your camera. The pivot and rotational settings lock so you don’t have to reset them when you change accessories. Because it’s so easy and so quick, you can change accessories for just one shot and then switch back to your default setting.”
Achenbach continues, “I wanted to add to the universe of GoPro mounts and accessories in a way that makes you, the GoPro user, fall in love with your camera all over again. The factories are lined up and ready to go. What I need to make this happen is your support to build the molds and produce the first run of parts.”
