Best mount for video, with out vibration??
I was looking at coptercam's front mount, someone suggest is a great mount, but is hard to get rid of vibration for video. My main purpose is using the mount for video, who make the smoothing video mount??

Assman's --50 size 360 pan mount

assman's --Custom front mount with DJ's Gimbal

Airfoil--mini pro

Or other suggestion?

I am leaning toward assman's front and underslung mount because they weight much less than other mounts. Kim Assman, told me both their
mount have similar vibration control. Any input on that??

front mounts are probably the smoothest but they require the most maintenance in terms of keeping them smooth.

With a front mount you will always need to make sure your machine is in perfect tune. If you don't mind that fact then a front mount will give the best video

If you want trouble free video that is almost as smooth an underslung will do you fine.

Also the type of shooting you will do will determine whether front or underslung is what you'll need.

So many variables involved in a discussion such as this one

Lets not forget also the fact that every type of video camera (even still ones) react differently to vibrations, there are some image sensors which seem to be more sensitive than others so the chemistry to vibration free images is not so easy to define. For ex, motion film cameras are easier to isolate since its bigger mass and the lack of electronics, by the other hand smaller and lightweight cameras the opposite.
CopterFilms´s mounts are provided with two type of dampers which isolate most of the worst high-freq vibrations, but as DJ says your machine needs to be perfectly tuned to eliminate those extra vib sources which dampers cannot filter out.
Good luck in your quest!
