Camera Mounts

Camera Mounting Options

What is the best way to mount the TAC-720 HD video camera?

There are almost unlimited options on where to mount the camera.  Included in the kit is a “universal” camera mount that could be used on a car dash or helmet. One of our customers is using it on a Radio Controlled airplane, but Law Enforcement Officers need more choices.

When using the TAC-720 as a dash camera aiming in the correct direction is very easy, but when used as a body camera it can become a process of trial and error. A way to make it quick and easy is to use a small L.E.D.  flashlight in the mount and direct the center of the light beam to the correct direction before using the camera. Here are examples with the shoulder strap, hat clip, and rubber helmet mount with the flash light in place.
