Welcome to our online store for camera cooling systems and reasonably priced Fence Mounts.

Custom Laser Engraving and 3D Printing are now available!

Overheating issues will occur when you take the “action” away from an action camera, like utilizing it in a static environment. We have successfully cooled GoPro and Smartphone cameras in Phoenix’s scorching summers since 2020. Our CAMCooLER fan system works with GoPro’s HERO12 Black, HERO11 Black, HERO11 Black Mini, HERO10 Black, HERO9 Black, HERO8 Black, HERO7 Black, and Hero5 Black cameras. We also support Action 4, Mevo Start, most smartphones, and Netgear’s Nighthawk Mobile Hotspot. Manufactured by our small business in Gilbert, Arizona! 

Under the scorching sun at a blistering 99 degrees, we pushed the limits by recording at 4k, 60 fps. Remarkably, all cameras, except the one in the Media Mod case, surpassed the 4-hour mark without experiencing any overheating issues.

Camera Cooling Systems

Keeping a camera recording on a warm summer day is a challenge regardless of location, but it can be almost impossible in the southwest, where it gets scorching. We’ve looked at thermoelectric cooler Peltier devices, but they draw large amounts of power and are only about 2 percent efficient. That would be fine if every ballpark had an electrical plug behind every backstop, it worked, and you could beat out every other parent there for access. A shading device will help, but the majority of the time, it alone will not suffice. According to GoPro and Logitech, these cameras need airflow movement to “wick” the heat away. Our camera coolers are active cooling blower fan(s) and shading devices. 

We’ve been doing this for two years successfully. Click here for proof showing the effectiveness of the CAMCooLER Camera Cooler on a few of the hottest weekends of recorded game videos with no GoPro camera overheats. Check out our Blog to review all the heat stress video data results.

CAMCooLER 9Ten11 cooling fan kept the GoPro 10 recording for over 4 hours at an average temperature of 119° F at 1080P | 60 | W, without the internal GoPro battery installed. 

CAMCooLER 9Ten11 can keep a GoPro 10 recording for over 11 hours at room temperature versus 22 mins without the cooling fan at the 5.3k | 60 | L+ setting.

A common problem in camera product design—particularly in electronics cooling—is managing thermal conditions for optimal efficiency. The core of the challenge is designing energy-efficient microprocessors and printed circuit boards (PCBs) that will not overheat. A frequently overlooked aspect of thermal management problem-solving is architectural design. To tackle and alleviate the difficulties and inefficiencies that arise from heat, engineers employ different cooling systems to manage conditions.

Passive cooling utilizes the camera case for radiation and convection heat transfer modes to achieve natural convection and heat dissipation. These methods are ineffective when using an action camera to record a sporting event on a chain-link fence on a warm summer day. A shade cover may help, but it will probably not be reliable. 

On the other hand, active cooling refers to cooling technologies that rely on an external device to enhance heat transfer. Through active cooling technologies, the fluid flow rate increases during convection, dramatically increasing the heat removal rate. Active cooling solutions include forced air through a fan or blowers like those deployed with our camera cooling systems have shown to be very effective. 

With its built-in shade design of passive cooling and the active cooling blower fans, our CAMCooLER camera cooling system is the solution that every parent or coach has struggled with…keeping the action camera like a GoPro from not overheating.  

To ensure its effectiveness, we conducted a comprehensive test on each of our cameras, subjecting them to extreme conditions. Outdoors, under the scorching sun at a blistering 99 degrees, we pushed the limits by recording at 4k, 60 fps. Remarkably, all cameras surpassed the 4-hour mark without experiencing any overheating issues.

As expected, without the presence of cooling fans, all cameras experienced overheating within a short span of 20 to 25 minutes.

Below is a list of games recorded with the Hero8 Black using the CAMCooLER Cooler Fans and the daily temperature historical data. This should help show you how effective these Cooler Fans are. See more data here.

Think about long term usage and internal battery swell with repeated high heat exposure. I’d want my camera to be as cool as possible with a active cooling solution to help remove this excess heat.

Recording and Streaming

We use a GoPro Hero8 Black or Hero10 Black for our club teams to record the complete game. Recorded on a Lexar 512GB U3 A2 1066x microSD card at 1080P with 60 fps. See GoPro for the recommended sd cards… don’t use the cheap ones, as you won’t like the results.  

After the tournament, I upload the complete game videos to the GoPro cloud using their Subscription service ($50 a year for unlimited cloud storage, and it’s also the camera warranty). I then share the link to each game with all players and parents so they can watch or download the video for their highlight reels. The shared links require no login; therefore, they only have access to what you share with them and no other uploaded videos.

As for streaming the game live, I use my kid’s playing smartphone to broadcast the game live via GameChanger TeamManager. I’m not using my data for this, sorry kids.

I’ve tried other methods and cameras, but getting the GoPro to link to a hotspot and/or streaming service can be troublesome and problematic. Other cameras don’t provide unlimited cloud service either. 

My philosophy is that the recorded video is the gold standard and what I use for recruiting videos. The live-streaming video, although excellent for parents not attending, is secondary.

About Us

We are a small family business in Gilbert, AZ. We have three daughters who play softball year-round. To find a way to keep our GoPro and Smartphones from overheating while recording games, we developed a camera cooling system that no one else is currently offering. The first design was bulky, but the final compact version works great!

Also, we have tried just about every fence mount on the market. The cheap GoPro fence mounts DIY products don’t work, and the high-quality stainless steel GoPro mounts are great but overpriced. Also, they get very hot sitting in direct sunlight and burn your hands. That is not a problem with our polycarbonate mounts. Our Universal Fence Mount is just right for the price and functionality.

We get it. We understand how expensive these sports are.

Get on base! Get over! Get In!
Whatever it takes! Make sure it’s recorded!
