I'm looking to upgrade how I mount my phone and was thinking about an AMPS pattern mount with lots of room for extras. Right now, the only other thing I would want to mount is a camera, but I can't really seem to find a good one. I was hoping there's a mount that just holds a 1/4-2 screw, like a tripod that can screw directly in to my camera. Maybe with only one degree of freedom so I can rotate it, but I don't really want a ball mount. Does anyone have any recommendations for this kind of thing?

Thanks!

If you can't find what you want, it can easily be printed with a 3D printer. Thingiverse (free 3D printer files) has an AMPS mount with GoPro adapter. You can find GoPro to 1/4-20 tripod adapters for a few $ on Amazon.

As Dean stated, RAM Mounts has a number of mounting options that utilize that screw. I know several ham operators who have used it to mount the remote head for some radios that utilized that screw mount as well (such as the Yaesu FTM-400).

Here's the item with that particular mount. From there you can select the components for the rest of the mount, depending on where and how you want to mount it.

The RAM mounts look good in general, and I'll likely use one of them for my phone, but I really don't want a ball mount for my camera, I really just want to be able to turn it left and right and that's it.
