Which Camera Mount

Please identify these GoPro mounts. I purchased my first GoPro camera, a Fusion Camera that has the 3 pronged mount that a thumb screw locks it to an accessory. I've attached what I call a Shoe Mount that I don't know what to do with it. It appears  the camera is supposed to have some type of plate on the camera that would slide in to this for a quick connect.

I purchased the El Grande pole that has this pole mount but I have no use for it as my Fusion has the 3-pronged fingers mount

Hi @roberth627

 

You will need to attach the camera to a mounting buckle first before sliding it on the mounting base.

 

 

For additional reference you may check this link

 

Thanks!

Re: Which Camera Mount

Understood the mounting buckle.

however, what does the mounting base look like? I need that to work w/ my GoPro Suction Cup I'm attaching to cab of a truck.

Re: Which Camera Mount

Hello @roberth627

 

This article on suction cup mounting instructions might be helpful. It includes a video that shows the necessary parts in order to properly mount the suction cup on the cab. Feel free to post back for any other questions or concerns. 

 

Thanks, 
Marius
