Overhead GoPro Lighting Fixture with EMT Conduit

GoPro Conduit Lighting FixtureAs seen in my video below, getting an overhead angle and lighting for your videos is as easy as sourcing parts, cutting conduit, drilling a few holes…OK, it’s not that easy, but this overhead GoPro lighting fixture isn’t the most difficult process you could take on.

As seen around 3:30, the slight swaying is a disadvantage to this attachment method. Perhaps I’ll come up with a way to mount things more solidly soon. Another current difficulty for this project would be that Maker Pipe parts (seen around 2:30) aren’t generally available as of this writing. Perhaps another 1/4 – 20 screw with holes drilled in the two pipes could be used as a substitute.

Regardless, I was somewhat proud of how I used the GoPro case as sort of a permanent mount. This will allow me to start the shot, insert it, and hopefully allow the swaying to dissipate. So it’s not all bad, and should provide for a good alternate angle for many of my projects.
