DIY Suction Cup Mount – GH2

Vimeo member Ragnar tackles the DIY suction cup camera mount for his GH2. There are much cheaper suction cup mounts, first posted here:, but Ragnar decided to go with a slightly more expensive Suction mount with articulation so that it can mount on not-so-completely flat surfaces such as hoods, windows, and other car panels. I'm sure we all don't believe in specs, but the one he's chosen states that it's rated for 132 lbs, so even if it's half true, that's more than suffice for a small GH2. So far it looks like he's fairly comfortable with the setup, trusting it to about 50mph (with a backup safety strap attached of course). For GoPro owners, this inexpensive setup should have no issues with the mini lightweight camera.

    @Nikita Pavlov - It would work for something as small as a GoPro or maybe Sony HX9V sized camera.

    @Barker - I have three suction mounts I got for 9 dollars each. These suctions are beasts compared to the other ones. I'm going to do my video soon with my cups.

    Thanks for the vid.

    How is this a better solution than the already made and cheaper Delkin Fat Gecko?

    Never thought I'd see my mug on a Cheesycam post. Thanks for the interest, Emm. Your site has provided many many DIY ideas and examples for me to follow.
