Camera Mount for Wing or Strut

Camera Mount for Wing or Strut

I need to find an STC'd or 337 option wing or strut mount for a 35mm camera to be placed out on the wing or strut of my 1956 Cessna 182. Anybody got a product or recommendation?
Thanks,
Bob

Re: Camera Mount for Wing or Strut

Hello Bob:

There is not much out there in terms of STC approved camera mods for the 182.

Below is a mod issued back in 1961. In addition, there is another camera-related mod that requires a 15" hole in the bottom of the fuselage.

That's about it.

Supplemental Type Certificate

STC Number:
SA4-662

This certificate issued to:
McBride Clifton G

STC Holder's Address:
620 Rollingwood Drive
Vallejo CA 94590
United States

Description of the Type Design Change:
Camera pod.

Status:
Issued, 01/01/1961

Responsible Office:
ANM-100L Los Angeles Aircraft Certification Office Tel: (562) 627-5200

TC Number -- Make -- Model:
3A12 -- Cessna Aircraft Company, The -- 172
3A13 -- Cessna Aircraft Company, The -- 182
5A6 -- Cessna Aircraft Company, The -- 180
A-799 -- Cessna Aircraft Company, The -- 170

I know that this sort of thing is done all the time.  the wildlife folks hang cameras and tracking antenna off the struts all the time.. call the FSDO and ask if  they have any info on the subject.  its likely just a logbook entry for the install and the wieght and balance revision and the 337 for the field approval for the external load.

I am not sure what you are trying to do by mounting a comera on the strut.  I have done this with an ultralight for taking pictures straight down.  The problem was that as much as you would guess what the camera was looking at it was very hard to get your subject in the frame. 

I considered mounting a small video camera looking through the viewfinder of the SLR camera or mounted beside it.  You could then have a small LCD TV in the cockpit.

Thanks gang...
I am trying to get images from outside the aircraft, looking back from a fixed, non-moving position, back at the fuselage and cabin...as people exit the door in flight (with parachutes most of the time).
Thanks for the suggestions so far...
Bob

I have an STC, the one quoted above, SA4-662 for a belly mounted portable camera pod. This  camera pod is quickly removable and installable, and will easily fit small or medium format cameras. It is approved for C182, C180, C172, and C170 series aircraft. See www.airbornescientific.com for details.
Thanks
