Drooping cameras

When it’s windy my cameras droop, I have the metal ball but can’t seem to get them tight enough (even using pliers) to not droop. Any suggestions? Thanks

Use a rubber washer from a roofing screw and place it inside the swivel where you tighten the camera to hold it’s position. Works perfectly and the rubber gives the extra friction you need!

Here are a few suggestions that might help:

  1. Check the Equipment: Make sure that the metal ball and the mounting hardware are in good condition and functioning properly. Sometimes, wear and tear or defects in the equipment can contribute to instability.
  2. Use Additional Support: Consider using additional support mechanisms such as stabilizing arms or brackets to provide extra stability to your cameras, especially in windy conditions.
  3. Adjust Mounting Position: Experiment with adjusting the mounting position of your cameras to see if a different angle or orientation can help reduce the impact of wind on the drooping problem.
  4. Upgrade Equipment: If your current setup still isn’t providing the stability you need, you might consider investing in higher-quality mounting hardware or a more robust camera support system designed specifically for windy conditions.
  5. Consult Experts: Reach out to professionals or enthusiasts in photography or videography forums or communities for advice and recommendations based on their experiences dealing with similar challenges.
