LAS VEGAS--Having trouble attaching your camera to the outside of your plane? Delkin Devices announced a new product, the Fat Gecko camera mount, that could take care of your needs.

The $89.99 device has two large suction cups to hold cameras as heavy as 6 pounds, company Chief Executive Martin Wood said at the Photo Marketing Association (PMA) trade show here. The $89 device is strong enough to hold a camera on a plane going 200mph, he said.

The company is also working on two other versions of the device, one with two straps for attaching cameras to larger tubes such as Harley-Davidson steering gear, and one with a clamp to attach to tubes such as bicycle handlebars measuring 1 inch to 1.875 inches in diameter.

The devices can be repositioned flexibly through a double-knuckle adjustment mechanism, Wood said. The steel-frame Fat Geckos use a standard tripod screw for attaching any camera.
