I saw that the line mount 2.0 is "exactly weight counterbalanced", does that mean it sinks with the float now? I've lost my camera, mount, and float before and was able to find it in the surf shortly after. I would like to know if this is still an option.
No, I think it means that the weight of the camera is centered between the lines, rather than dangling below it like the first version.
Yes! this is correct. the only weight added is the actual line mount itself. the way the camera's weight is balanced makes it more stable. the newest mount holds the camera totally different than the previous mount. I've tested the new line mount with a gopro and float and it seems to maintain its bouyancy. it should work even better with the all new hero3 because the camera is even lighter than the previous models.
speaking of hero3, I've been testing the new camera with a new design line mount and it seems to film very stable. sorry to those that have had less than stellar results, I know it can be frustrating.
this video has had minor editing however there is no stabilization added to the footage. was riding a 14m park with the airush wakeskate
