I am a wedding videographer and decided to give this go pro thing a whirl. Best idea ever. I purchased the Jaws clamp mount for GoPro from B & H. I used it in a wedding and mounted my GoPro camera in front of the bride and groom (behind the minister). It clamped on very tight and secure and stayed that way for the entire wedding. I mounted it at the top of the arch gazeebo that the bride and groom stood under during the ceremony. No one knew it was even there because of it's size. You can adjust it anyway you want to get the desired angle and frame. I highly recommend this accessory for anyone using a GoPro camera. It actually saved me on this last wedding because we couldn't get our larger cameras close enough to get a really good close up of the bride and grooms face. The footage edited in nicely with our higher end cameras ($ plus) footage. If there were 10 stars I would have to give it a 10. You need this. It is an excellent addition to you GoPro accessories. Definitely worth the money. And of course B&H shipped immediately and I got it in time for my wedding that weekend.

I got this as an extra mount for my motorcycle. The clamp is great and holds tight. The whole unit tends to vibrate pretty hard when travelling over about 50mph. I tried it in a few different locations, but the vibration was pronounced. I can see this being a handy mount for a lot of applications, but in my opinion it is not the best choice for motorsports.

Comments about GoPro Jaws Clamp Mount:

It has a strong grip, I haven't tested it on my motorcycle, but clamped it on parts of my jeep.
It does shake so video can be jerky. I haven't figured out how those youtube videos come out so well.
I was going to clamp it to my sliders, but my leg would move it.

      Comments about GoPro Jaws Clamp Mount:

      I already had one Jaws Clamp Mount by GoPro, and thought I could use another. I use my Hero3 and small video cameras for a variety of uses, and the Jaws is a great way to squirrel away these cameras to get supplemental footage for our main cameras at events, for instance.

      I was a little disappointed however with the new Jaws, because it was one segment shorter than my first one. I guess it's a case of the candy bar, the half gallon of ice cream, and the container of coffee that shrank in size without a price reduction.

      However, it's not a show-stopper, and I'm glad to have a second one.

            This is a great clamp that allows attachment to a wide variety of surfaces. The gooseneck is a little stiff but still flexible. The clamp seems like it will grab onto anything.

              Comments about GoPro Jaws Clamp Mount:

              I have used a Jaws Clamp Mount for about a year and find it to be extremely handy. I also have several C-Clamp type mounts, but where I can use it, the Jaws Clamp Mount is so much easier to mount and adjust. Thus, I bought a second one.

              I use it not only with my GoPro, but also small handi-cam type cameras that we squirrel away here-and-there at events, etc.

              I was surprised to find that the goose-neck on the new one is shorter than the older one. I guess it's a case of the "shrinking candy bar, half-gallon of ice cream, and pound of coffee." Same or higher price, less product.

              Still, it's a good product, and maybe the shorter length will actually prove to be an advantage, not just a manufacturing cost reducer.

                This clamp is very strong. I've used it to attach the GoPro to a 5 ft long 1 inch pole for extended reach, worked great! I really like the rubber strap in the jaws of the clamp to adjust the bite size.

                  Comments about GoPro Jaws Clamp Mount:

                  This is a great mount. The clamp is very sturdy. The arm didn't provide the most flexibility range but it goes at least 75 degrees from the clamp. Also the fact that there is a mount on the arm and the clamp provides even more possiblies

                        This is a great clamp and flexible neck, but the price expensive. I'm happy with another one of these I've been using for awhile, so decided to grab another - guess that says enough? Wish they were cheaper though.

                                  This clamp works just about as you would expect it to. Attaches to most things (recently clamped it to the side of a mini skate ramp during a competition)and provides an ample amount of positioning. Doesn't hold tight enough for heavy movment (don't use it as a motor vehicle mount...trust me)but is great for a quick stab your GoPro into postion and get the shot. Also works well as a camera handle for hand-held shots.

                                  I use this to take scenery pictures and time lapses which it is great for. The clamp isn't sturdy enough to use in action sports but it is still very useful. My only complaint is that the clamp can't attach to thick pieces.

                                              The clamp is good and stiff with a lot of grip, and the arm is stiff as well.

                                                The jaws of this clamp are very strong and would hold the GoPro through a tornado!

                                                Really like this clamp - its super flexible and very handy to mount a GoPro wherever we need! Worth the money!
