The 3rd Person View camera mount by SailVideoSystem is a unique body-worn camera mount that lets you film yourself in action. This camera mount was launched early 2013 with a Kickstarter campaign. And got exposure worldwide.
Since then our mount became the standard in the industry and has been used all over the world. GoPro used it to get some of the most dramatic shots in their launch campaign for the new GoPro Hero3+ and 4 camera, and of course the Lion Hug film.
The system is designed to be flexible (in use) but stable enough so you can mount a camera behind your back (or from the side or front) to create the impossible 3rd person perspective.
It has been featured in many high-end video’s by GoPro, RedBull, CBSNews '60Minutes', and is used all over the world by professional filmmakers, top athletes and enthusiastic YouTube video producers.
But don't just take our word for it:
Bradford Schmidt (Creative Director at GoPro) in his book: GoPro | PROFESSIONAL GUIDE TO FILMMAKING.
"…Around the time of the HERO3 release, a company called Sail Systems Video developed a backpack mount of their own: a similar windsurf harness, and a more popular, less rugged version that works for everything else. The human midsection is naturally stable and makes for good mounting. The best part is that the mounts arm is adjustable so you can place the camera in any position. We bring several of these backpack mounts on most of our shoots, and they are incredibly useful for all kind of activities." Read more here!
