    My Take on the stick pic camera pole mount.

    There was some great pics and videos on the swamp hang last weekend thanks to a little invention called the StickPic made by Thestickpic.com. I checked there site to buy one for what I thought was a reasonable price, but they were out of the #2 size I needed for my hiking pole. So I got bored at work today and fabbed a few of these up. It has the standard thread for most camera and camcorder mounts. Just a simple P-clamp, a wing nut to lock the camera in place, and a machine screw. The rubber on the P-clamp works great for holding it to the pole without slipping.

    looks good, the rubber might even grip better than my stick pic?
    I havn't had any problems with mine but I still loop my camera strap around my pole JIC

    Yours looks great. I made one out of a bolt and a bottle cap. Yours looks like it might be a bit more secure.

    Nicely done, I've got a bunch of those in my tool box at work, I might have to give that a go. Good idea, thanx.

    Hi SpecialK,
    You have one of the best DYI StickPic designs I have see so far.
    Man, I wish I thought of that!

    Keep those great ideas coming!

    I really wanted to buy a stick pic after seeing how great it worked, But i'm one of those guys that has more fun making stuff than actually using it.

    Very cool and innovative. Good thinking outside the box
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Im all about the DIY and home repair... I don't "call the guy" if I can do it myself.... but I gotta ask..... what is a "P-clamp"?

    And I would love to purchase one from you if I cant make it myself...
