Mounting and Form

Mounting and Form

Your action camera's most important feature is how it will mount to you, your vehicles and other parts of your activities. Below we look at how this camera fits to certain mounts and what it's mounting setup is.

There are two main mounting systems, the GoPro (2 to 3 fin mount) and the 1/4" (quarter inch) thread mount.

When we decide how each camera is mounted, we talk about it's form, whether it would fit to a certain popular mounting type, such as on the chest, head or in-hand and whether there was a mounting type for this too.

Form

The ThiEYE T5e is of regular rectangular action camera shape. When looking at it from the front, it is shallow, which means it is great for putting up against your body or where space is a premium and you don't want anything protruding.
