Okay, I want to start recording war video. I do plan to buy a GoPro camera and use it for recording the wars I attend. But, until then I still have my personal camera that is still really good. Since the war season is starting on the Northeast, I want to start recording ASAP. I want to know the best method for mounting my camera. (Picture Below) I do not prefer to use a hat or gun mount but if it comes down to that I will. So, does anyone no the most efficient way to capture war video? Replies are welcomed!

I recently made a mount for my own camera (Samsung W200).

Posted Image

My Camera has the tripod mount on the bottom left corner, so you might need to make yours slightly different.

I started by cutting a piece of wood a little bit larger than the bottom of my camera.

Posted Image

Then I took a sharpie and marked where the the tripod mount would go on the camera.

Posted Image

Next, I drilled a 3/16 hole where the screw would go.

Posted Image

After that, I took my 1/4in screw to see if it fit.

Posted Image

The next steps are to show you how I attachted it to my SNAP.

I took a scrap piece on 1" PVC and cut it in half. Then I marked 2 dots, 1 for the screw and one to attatch to the SNAP.

Posted Image

I drilled another 3/16 hole for the 1/4in screw and a 1/8 hole for the screw that attatches to the gun.

Posted Image

Finally, I attatched it to the front of the stock of my SNAP.

Posted Image

I hope this helps.

Edit: Here is a quick video I took with the mount. My mount is attatchted at an angle so the video looks a little slanted.
