Action camera users maybe interested in a new GoPro, Garmin camera mount which has been launched this week called the Switchback, that has been specifically designed for quick alterations allowing you to keep up with the action.
Its creators explain more about the inspiration behind the Switchback camera mount which improves on the current much slower quick release systems that are integral parts of most action camera mounts currently available on the market.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about the unique features of the Switchback which is now available to back via the Kickstarter crowdfunding website with early bird pledges starting from just $10. The developers at BOCE explain a little more about Switchback’s design, inspiration and functionality.
When it comes to action cameras, action is key. Screws and current quick release systems are slow and can cause you to miss key shots. With these systems, simple rotations of the camera can be potentially devastating when in the air, under the water, or on the trail. Don’t let your existing mounts slow down your action and adventures.
Switchback offers a revolutionary mounting system that finally lives up to the potential of your GoPro. Offering quick swivel and quick transfer abilities, adjusting the orientation and sharing between friends has never been easier. There is no longer a need to stop the action to share a GoPro between friends, simply pull the pin and hand off, it’s that easy.
Switchback uses a Patent-Pending spring-pin mechanism to allow easy rotation at 90 degree increments and rapid switching between bases while remaining completely secure. Simple bases utilize the universal two prong system allow for easy expansion to cover all of your existing mounts, while the Switchback containing the locking pin and release handle remains attached to the camera and can be quickly released from the base. Switchback is compatible with all GoPro Hero models including the Hero 3+, Hero 4, and Hero Session. Switchback is also compatible with the Garmin Verb X/XE.
