I'm looking to buy a pylon mount for my camera to record video and hopefully use as self instruction. This is for a 196, not sure it matters.
My ski buddy has the skidoc mount, and it works fine for cell phone video, but the mount isn't strong enough to hold my Canon SX120 which has image stabilization (the reason I want to use it instead of a cell phone).
I know this topic comes up regularly (as recently as May 21st) but the Orbit was pretty darn new back then. Has anyone compared the Wakeye to the Orbit, specifically with a heavier camera/camcorder? I don't mind spending double for the Wakeye, I just want the best mount.
BTW, does anyone know what the weight rating for the Orbit is? It's not listed on their website. (I have an e-mail in)...
