Ken Achenbach, professional photographer, filmmaker, Hall of Fame snowboarder and the inventor of the game changing Twintip snowboard and Baseless snowboard binding has now invented the best new accessory for the GoPro Hero 5 Black and the GoPro Hero 5 Session as well as any other action camera that uses GoPro-style mounting.
360 Quick Connect changes how you shoot with your GoPro and how you interact with all your mounts and accessories. 360 Quick Connect brings a true quick-change ability to swapping mounts, while also adding the feature of being able put your GoPro on any angle between 1º and 360º. 360 Quick Connect also brings locking micro adjustable rotational tension so you can have your GoPro Hero 5 rotate on any mount with any rotational tension, from freely rotating to locked in position. When you change mounts, your pivot and rotational tension settings stay the same.
Put 360 Quick Connect Cleat or Tine Connectors on all your GoPro or third-party mounts and accessories to get the rotational ability of the 360 Quick Connect system into every shot. 360 Quick Connect gives you complete compositional freedom so you can get the selfie stick out of the center of your photo, instantly changing the look of your shots from the center weighted look that GoPros are famous for. It’s never been easier to swap mounts or reposition your GoPro, for just a single shot. Use the built-in 'Cam Perfect' markings so you can create shots using the markings to position the camera exactly. Recreating shots is a snap, simply remember what Cam Perfect marking you had your GoPro Hero 5 Session on and lock your GoPro in place with the lever -- no more guessing, no app required.
You can tell by the depth of the design that Ken has poured his 35 years of experience shooting snowboarding, skateboarding, BMX, skiing, surfing and lugging camera equipment around the world to create the new Pro Standard for mounts and accessories.
When you go to Kickstarter to back this project, be sure you read the full story on the 360 Quick Connect’s creation. You’ll be glad you supported 360 Quick Connect as soon as you see your first shots.
