- How do I know what I’m recording? The correct angle for filming is already set on the camera. You don’t really need to do any more. However, you can always use the wi-fi capability of your camcorder – a procedure which works for sure, but really isn’t necessary to frame the picture.
- Can I use it Indoors? Yes, just put the curtain cable between the inner leg of the QM-1 and the pole. https://youtu.be/csVUFDd9Wm4
- Will it work with any camera? Yes, any camera with a standard 1/4″ x 20 screw thread (NOTE: The GoPro requires a special adapter available on this website under Accessories. Or if you order your QM-1, it is an add-on at an even lower price and no shipping)
- Can you suggest a camera for recording tennis matches? YES! Please click here to go to our cameras page. Works with GoPro, MUVI, smartphones…..just about any camcorder!
- Where is the pole made? We have to import some parts, but the QM-1 is mostly manufactured and assembled in Denver, Colorado.
- I saw another camera mount that cost twice as much, using mirrors and a hook. Is it a better mount for filming tennis? Not at all. You pay twice as much for half the functionality. It doesn’t easily fit in your bag and it can only be mounted from inside the tennis court – not good for coaches or parents or other situations requiring an outside mount! Other than that, it worked well for older camcorders with snap-out viewfinders, but it had to be pulled from Amazon due to the bad reviews. It is marketed very well.
The four-piece custom-made pole telescopes from 28″ to 6′-5″. Made from rugged aluminum bars bent into a clamping hook that “wedges”, not just hangs, onto the fence rail to give a secure attachment. “Soft-touch”, rubberized knobs are easy on the hands. Used by the USTA Player Development program, Chris Evert Tennis Academy and literally hundreds of Colleges and Universities.
