The Tray in black from Snake River Prototyping adds stability, comfort, and mounting options for underwater shooting with your DSLR camera, small camcorder, or action camera. The Tray features adjustable handles with rubber grips made by ODI and a CNC-machined aluminum mounting platform. A tripod mount for GoPro HERO cameras and a 1/4"-20 thumb screw come included.
The wedge-shape design of the Tray puts the handles behind the camera, ideal for wide-angle for keeping your hands out of the shot with cameras and lenses with wide viewing angles, such as the GoPro HERO cameras. In addition, the GoPro can be tilted down and the Tray becomes a duo-pod with the wedge shape lifting the camera above the surface the duo-pod is set on. This makes it possible to set the Tray down in a sandy spot on the bottom of the ocean and for capturing self-portraits or shy creatures. While designed for underwater use, the Tray can also be used handheld above water or on tripods.
The two handles mount into slots down each wing of the Tray via the included T-bolts. When the handles are loosened, the T-bolts slide in the slots and allow you to adjust the position of the handles to your comfort. This lets you put one handle close to your DSLR camera so that you don't have to remove your hand in order to operate the shutter on the camera. The high-quality rubber grips are made by ODI and have aluminum locking rings that tighten onto the top and bottom of the handles so that the grips will not twist or break down with use.
Two 1/4"-20 threaded and two 1/4" unthreaded mounting holes located at the front of the Tray provide mounting options for a variety of cameras and camera mounts. There is also a 1/4"-20 threaded mount on the top of each handle for adding LED lights or other accessories. Two additional 1/4" unthreaded holes are provided on the left and right ends of the Tray for mounting a wrist lanyard or retractable lanyard options.
