Saw these today for $20 at Jaycar Electronics. The suction cup attaches firmly to the front of both my SOT kayaks, so it passes the first test.

I'll give it a decent test tomorrow (hopefully) and report on how it handles the weight of a camera after a few hours.

The mount worked perfectly on the Loon yesterday. I took it out to Pittwater and had it recording for about half an hour and it held firm the whole time, even works in the chop.

$20 well spent.

took it out for a test run on the weekend. the mount worked great. would post a few photos from it but my brain wasn't working this day. my camera is now somewhere on the floor of the hawkesbury. I had the camera screwed onto the mount (minus it's floatie ), and after taking a few shots and turning the camera around to look at them, I stupidly managed to screw the camera off the mount, which then bounced into my kayak and then out.
certainly an operator error. thankfully a tax return is only around the corner!

Bummer about the camera Shred that was something I thought would have to be covered before getting on the water. I would have the floating wrist strap tethered to the yak as well even though straps,string,leashes can be a pain in the axx. I've ruined two cameras in the drink in the last couple of years and now I have a waterproof one I'm even more cautious getting it close to water - Go figure !!!!! Cheers Pat.

Yep, leash it or lose it. That's something I should have included in the original post.

Hope the taxman treated you well Shred!
