Hey MP Climbing Videographers,

I just pulled my old camcorder out of the drawer and actually got it working again. I'm thinking of taking it with me to the crags this season, and this got me wondering:

-How do you get your shots?
-What mounting gear do you use to achieve good perspectives and 'from above' and 'away from the wall' shots?
-Is there a cheapish way to construct a gyroscopic mount to steady and right the camera?

Any tricks are helpful as I've been out of the shooting game for a while and have really just been editing lately.

I like these products from Dinkum Systems to mount things in odd places.
It could be on a tree, a ski pole, a piece of gear, bolt hanger, etc...
