Tripod Brackets come in two basic versions one for mounting SLR housings and one for mounting camcorder housings. In addition each of these versions come in two styles: with and without mounting features for attaching Light & Motion battery pods.
These brackets have been designed to provide a wide, low profile footprint with legs attached. Overall the bracket adds less than an inch of height to your housing. Leg attachments are industry standard 1" diameter ball adaptors. Combine these brackets with legs sold by Xit 404 or others to add the stability and versatility you desire to your shooting.
