PRESS RELEASE: Swap Cameras in a Snap from Unthinkable Shooting Angles
with the Quick Release for Fat Gecko Camera Mounts
Poway, CA. July 6th, 2011- Today Delkin announced their Fat Gecko Quick Release Kit, the newest accessory to the award winning Fat Gecko Camera Mount product line, that gives users the ability to swap cameras, camcorders and DSLRs on and off any mount in seconds. The two part anodized aluminum Quick Release features two built in liquid levels to ensure precise vertical and horizontal angle set-up as well as flanged edges and a push button key to prevent slippage once a camera is locked into place. A universal ¼-20 female adapter on the base plate enables secure attachment to any of Delkin's Fat Gecko Camera Mounts as well as any standard tripod or monopod with a ¼-20 or 3/8-20 mounting head, making this accessory truly universal across photography equipment.
"Our Fat Gecko Mounts are being utilized across so many markets to capture unique shots and video footage that were otherwise unattainable in non-traditional environments such as action sports, racing, aviation and even feature films," explains Marketing Manager, Anna Lopez. "Many times a user has several cameras or camcorders that they utilize during a shoot, and they need to be able to swap those devices quickly without down time. Saving time during a shoot can equal substantial cost savings in industries such as cinematography where every second counts. Besides the cost and time savings in professional markets, the Quick Release provides the convenience of quick attachment, detachment and precise leveling to the everyday shooter."
The Quick Release is rated to reliably hold devices weighing up to 6.6 pounds stable, including all point and shoots and prosumer cameras as well as most DSLRs and compact camcorders. The kit, which includes a base plate, top plate and user guide, begins shipping to photography and videography stores worldwide on July 11th at the retail price of $39.99. Additional top plates are available separately for a price of $19.99 to enable users to install one to each camera or camcorder for seamless integration with the Kit's base plate.
Delkin's award winning line of Fat Gecko Camera Mounts includes over 11 sku's that make impossible shooting angles and perspective easily attainable from almost any surface in industries that include photography, videography, automotive, aviation, action sports, cycling, security, medical, food services and more. Accessories that mate a flash unit, GPS device or tablet PC to a Fat Gecko's ¼-20 mounting head are also available and can be purchased directly through the company at www.delkin.com or through any Delkin authorized retailer worldwide.
