When you need a sturdy support for your camera, but havenít got a tripod or monopod available, you can instead use this strap solution from Fat Gecko. You can mount the strap to any object with a circumference between 8.5 inches (21.5cm) and 54 inches (136.8cm) - so most trees, telephone poles, beams and columns - and be sure of a secure and sturdy support for your camera. The Fat Gecko Strap Mount is made up of three rugged bracket plates that conform to the shape of the mounted object, and a rubber padding on the back of the plates prevents the mount from slipping. There are also holes in the bracket plates so that, if desired, the mount can be screwed to a flat surface.
The strap itself is like a belt on an aeroplane so is easy to tighten and release when finished. It comes with a fully adjustable 1/4 inch ball socket head for maximum versatility for the angle of your shot. Thatís what we like about the Fat Gecko range - the possibilities that the range of supports open up for unusual or seemingly impossible angle shots. Maximum weight: 8lb (3.63kg).
