We hope this project will get funded as we just pledged and backed this Kickstarter project by Swivit: SWIVIT PRO Multidirectional Mount for GoPro Hero Cameras

Here is the description from Swivit:

Capture more of what’s going on around you with 360 degrees of rotation, without interruption or hassle.


Life’s greatest moments happen all around us—not just in front of the camera!

We love that GoPro cameras capture everything everywhere, but the current mounts and accessories have a huge limitation: the camera is locked in a single direction. Until now, it’s been challenging and inconvenient to change the camera direction, which involved fumbling with mounts, bolts, linkages, and adjustments.

Well you don’t need to do that anymore.

The SWIVIT PRO gives you the freedom to quickly and easily capture multiple angles—and more of what’s going on around you—right in the moment.

No matter what, how, or where you film…


The SWIVIT PRO can also:
– Turn the camera to face backward while not recording, which can help protect lens from debris damage when traveling at higher speeds.
– Help capture 360° of video while mounted on a tripod or other mounts, giving you better stability and continuity than with handheld filming.
– Assist with more than just action sports: it’s indispensable at events or during stage and film production.
– Work with numerous camera and rigging setups to collect B-roll; get simultaneous, multi-angle footage without affecting the main shot, or use it for the main shot, too.
– Play nice with numerous GoPro and 3rd-party mounts, including many of the ones that have been successfully funded here on Kickstarter!
– Guarantee offline, analog simplicity

And the biggest perk of them all: VERSATILITY!

From surfing to snowmobiling to racing a taxi driver in Mexico, the uses are endless…
