You may be familiar with RAM Mounts and their suitability for improving your car setup, motorcycle setup and more - but did you know how they can be used to enhance your photography setup? RAM make thousands of different components, and over time we’ve seen many photographers, camera-operators and more from the entertainment industry develop an array of different creative uses for DSLR, mirrorless, and action cameras (such as the GoPro).
Below are 4 RAM Mounts that each and every photographer should put in their camera bag.
Make Your DSLR Camera compatible with RAM Mounts with: 1/4″ Adapters
Looking at you, Canon, Nikon, or Sony camera operators.
Most modern DSLR cameras include a 1/4″ thread connection, and with one of our RAM 1/4" Threaded Camera Adapters (below) you can make your DSLR compatible with a wide range of RAM Mounts and components.
For smaller cameras, the B size option will suit you fine. However if your camera is a little on the heavier side, or if you're using it in more demanding circumstances – consider the C size option.
The Reliable and Versatile Travel Companion: The RAM Tough-Claw™
Ever found yourself without a tripod? Well, we're sure you have. Anyway, when you're just needing that extra stability for your camera, simply use one of these Tough-Claw clamping mounts.
Just twisting the knob will ensure your grip is tight, whether on round, square, or oddly-shaped rails and bars. The RAM Tough-Claw™ is sold in small, medium, and large versions, and with various size ball adapters.
Wildlife Lighting, Camera Mounts: The RAM Tough-Tap™
Thinking of going bush? Then you'll want to bring the RAM Tough-Tap™ mount. Whether it's mounting your Phone, GoPro or other camera to a tree (to catch yourself some footage of Drop Bears or Bigfoot), or mounting your favourite lighting accessory while out in the forest (such as the Lumecube), the RAM Tough-Tap™ mount has you covered.
For nature and wildlife photographers - or even portrait photographers operating in a unique setting - this is an ideal solution for getting that perfect angle or unique lighting.
And don't worry - you're not going to hurt the tree. The screw attached is simply too small to leave any damage.
All You Need for Your GoPro / Action Camera
When it comes to action cameras, nothing accompanies them better than RAM Mounts and their vibration-dampening technology. You can achieve amazing camera angles and perspectives while getting minimal to zero shake, depending on the situation.
So if you’re 4x4ing, mountain biking, piloting a plane, paddle boarding, fishing, there’s a RAM® mounting setup for you.
