Review of the Soft Touch Camera Mount System

The Soft Touch Camera Mount System is an intuitive, versatile camera accessory. It uses photo industry standard thread (1/4-inch – 20) on both ends, which makes it compatible with almost all cameras and tripods.

Design and features

The Soft Touch Camera Mount System looks and works much like human spine. Like a spine, it can bend and move to let you fix your camera at any angle from any direction (horizontal, vertical, upside-down, and so on).

Soft Touch Camera Mount System Soft Touch Camera Mount uses six individual pliable links made of a high quality plastic called Delrin. You can bend the mount system in any direction by using any individual link. The bottom link has a 1/4-inch aluminum thread to attach it to a tripod's base, and the other end has a 1/4-inch screw to attach it to any camera thread. The upper link comes with an intuitively designed quick release clutch system that makes it easy to attach and release your camera. You do not need to twist the mount system or the camera in order to attach them; you can just place the screw on camera’s thread and twist the built-in clutch system to attach it.

The Soft Touch Camera Mount System is durable. It is available in two different colors: black and white.

User friendliness

We used the Soft Touch Camera Mount System with a Ravelli APLT4 61-inch tripod and an Olympus Evolt E500 SLR camera. The camera weighs 450 grams with the battery. Attaching the camera mount system to the tripod and to the camera was a cinch. The Soft Touch Mount System let us set the camera at almost any angle we wanted. Even though the camera weighs more than a pound, the Soft Touch Mount System was able to hold to it securely without any sign of bending or shaking. This accessory made it much easier to get the camera into the perfect position. It saved time, too; we could set the camera at a perfect angle in a fraction of the time we needed without the camera mount. Soft Touch Camera Mount System
