PRESS RELEASE: Delkin Fat Gecko Camera Mount Wins DIMA Award
Poway, CA. Mar 3, 2009 - Delkin's newest DIMA Award winning accessory is the Fat Gecko camera mount. The Fat Gecko is a dual suction cup mount that allows all photographers, videographers and motorsport enthusiasts to quickly and easily mount a camera to almost any surface. With three attachment options - the suction cup mount, clamp-style handlebar mount, and strap bicycle mount - photographers can film and shoot from any surface, any vehicle, and at any time. Fat Gecko joins the company's many unique and innovative DIMA award winning products.
"As a sport bike enthusiast, I am very excited about this product," said Kathleen Finlayson, Delkin's Accessories Product Manager. "We have thoroughly researched this market and designed just the right camera mount to fit the needs of its members. The DIMA award tells us we are on the right track!"
The Fat Gecko suction cup mount allows users to secure cameras to motorcycles, ATV's, cars, trucks, airplanes, or any other smooth surface. The blend of rugged design and ease of use makes Delkin's Fat Gecko camera mount optimal for use in all motorsports, from drifting to motocross. Fat Gecko's suction cups are so strong they can hold more than a five pound camera, or the equivalent of a full size SLR with a standard lens. The double knuckle design and 2" extender allow for 360° tilt, 360° turn & 360° rotation to capture all of the best filming angles in any activity. The universal 1/4 x 20 tripod mounting screw means users can connect virtually any digital still or video camera on the market.
As a secondary option, the Fat Gecko clamping mount enables users to attach a still camera or camcorder to standard 1 1/4 inch handlebars on motorcycles, ATVs, go-carts and more. For non-motorized sports, a third innovative strapping mount connects your device to the handlebars of a bicycle to reduce vibration, providing the smoothest video possible. Fat Gecko's quick release features let users quickly and easily move the mount from car to car, bicycle to motorcycle or ATV to airplane.
"With this camera mount we are reaching out not only to a new market, but to a whole new realm of imaging" said Martin Wood, Delkin's CEO. "Our goal at Delkin has always been to create products that are innovative and useful, whether those products are designed for photographers or MotoGP riders, like our Fat Gecko. Making photography better and more enjoyable for all types of photographers is the key to our success and we plan on much more in the future."
