I have tried having the camera hanging from the back stay so that it could stay level all the time.So far the results are not that watchable.The main problem I kept failing to solve is the constant movement of the camera with every piece of chop the boat hits.The resulting video is just too hard to watch.
There has to be some way of fixing the camera in a stable angle fore and aft,while still allowing it to swing freely side to side.I'm working solely with duct tape and some off cut aluminium strips bent into various shapes.So far all the simple brackets I come up with become to heavy and complicated for easy use.
Keep trying I guess,its a chore having fun
