We get a number of questions from customers about the best way to attach or secure their CamRanger. The answer really depends on the photographer's setup and workflow. While working on a tripod, the included black pouch and carabiner clip can be a good choice as there are number of attachments points on a tripod or camera strap.
If the photographer is more mobile then the pouch can be used attached to a camera strap or or shirt pocket, but isn't as convenient. There are some third party options, TetherTools makes a couple of products that can be secured to the CamRanger that allow a 1/4"-20 screw mount. This opens up a number of possibilities, including using in conjunction with a hot shoe adapter to attach the CamRanger to a hot shoe. The two options are the Mighty Mount, which actually uses adhesive to stick onto the CamRanger, and the Smart Clip, which is has strong spring clip to clamp around the CamRanger. TetherTools also has a number of iPad mounting options, including the wearable TabStrap, which can be helpful if trying to hand hold a camera and iPad.

For photographers with a bit more creativity, we have seen a few homemade solutions that seem to have worked well for them. A couple of the better ones we have seen are to velcro or rubber band the CamRanger onto an L-bracket (nice if a hot/cold shoe isn't an option) or another customer who used some double sided foam tape with a little bubble level.
