Flymount GoPro Adapter!



We've developed a GoPro adapter for the Flymount, giving a fast and secure attachment between the two products, and eliminating the need for the GoPro Tripod adapter. The adapter should be available in the New Year from our website, and from our dealers.

The new adapter makes the Flymount the ultimate GoPro mast mount - ultra light weight, completely adjustable and bomb proof! It also gives unrivaled performance for roll bar mounted photography with the GoPro, and hundreds of other applications too. And, as always, you can use your Flymount with pretty much ANY camera on the planet.

Flow Windsurfing Supports the Flymount!


LADIES - GET WITH THE FLOW

FLOW - For Ladies Of Windsurfing (www.flowindsurfing.com) - is an online information resource designed specifically for female windsurfers.

Founded by Amy Carter, the website is brimming full of stories, experiences, tips and pointers all relevant to the fairer sex within the sport. It sets a clear aim to not only encourage more females into windsurfing, but also to provide a much needed support system and a sense of community for those already enjoying the sport. Discussing the objectives of the FLOW concept, it is hard not to feel the amount of passion Amy (a distinguished racer herself) has put into the project:

"Windsurfing has always been the sport I've loved! After years involved in the sport I have become increasingly frustrated with the perception that you must be tough and strong to windsurf. I felt that something needed to be done to breakdown this misconception.
By providing information for women, by women, FLOW aims to create a fun, friendly 'club atmosphere' so that we can help each other learn, develop, enjoy and achieve together in the sport."

Whilst much of the location information is focussed around Amy's native UK at the moment, many of the articles and tips are relevant to women wherever they are. So whether you're looking to crack that next manoeuvre, don't know which kit to buy, have an article, photo or tip you want to share ... or have a female friend you want to get into the sport (boys!), visit www.flowindsurfing.com and get involved.

Notes on the Pentax W80 and the Olympus 8000 Tough


Battery Life
WINNER - The Olympus 8000 Tough

Video
WINNER - Pentax W80 - 32 minutes
Olympus Tough - 17 minutes video at 30 frames per second

High Definition
The Pentax W80 can shoot High Definition at 30 frames per second, but is limited to 11 minutes per movie at this quality.

The Pentax W80 High Definition movie mode captures footage at a frame size of 1280 x 720 giving a more rectangular frame than the standard 640 x 480 30 frames per second mode. This results in a slightly cropped image - worth bearing in mind if you want to have a wide angle view to your movies.

January 2010 News


January 2010
From its humble beginnings as a homemade mount in Tarifa, the Flymount has taken over three years of research and development. And now it has finally gone to manufacture! We hope to receive pre-production models in the next couple of weeks. Once we OK these, we are on the home run.

"As a professional photographer and video director I am very excited about this product", says Chris Knapton, Nonstop's Director. "One of the reasons we buy cameras, particularly the new waterproof and shockproof models, is to capture great images in wild locations and activities - so where do you put the camera when your hands are both occupied? That's why the Flymount works so well, you fit it, line up your camera and go, knowing that the camera will still be there when you get back and you'll have the kind of shots that the professionals spend a fortune getting with specialist equipment".

The Flymount is tested at The Works skate park. See BMX video here

December 2009
A big thank you to 3 year old Charlie Allsopp who tried the Flymount on his Go-kart in the snow. Nice footage! See video here

Thank you for all your emails (from all over the world). Here are few for you to see - ALL genuine:

"A great product. It will save me a fortune in gaffa tape"

"I just bought myself a Pentax W80, and the Flymount is the perfect solution to get the most out of my camera whilst biking and freeskiing".

"Need one of the mounts; they look great.."!!!!

"Great product. Hope you can release soon"!!

"Heading from California to Guatemala on a little motorcycle, I need a unit that will take a bit of punishment. i'll be using the Optio W80, so your product really caught my eye".

"The W80 should tick all the boxes and get some great footage with the Flymount in the coming year"!

"I ride motorcycle, quad, dirtbike and sled in the winter, when I stumbled upon your mount I was very excited"!
