I've been searching for a good (ie. no rattle and safe) video mount for my car. Found the following on the net and was wondering if anyone has used it or know of it?

Can anyone recommend anything else? I want to record the next track session..just for kicks  :D

i wouldn't trust it with an expensive camera on the outside of the car.

suction cups are a bit unpredictable.

I love my car. Buy your own

If you're thinking universal, then this is what I often use...  Its a tripod, but then the 2 legs unscrew and stow away inside the main body, leaving you to use the G-clamp instead. The top is a really solid swivel ball and socket.

I was going to video from within the car. Thinking of mounting it on pax side window. Not sure if this will be permitted on the track though..so might have to leave it off during scrutineering  :scratchchin:

Even to video some of the drives I do around the hills and country side would be of interest to me.

Flamestone, where would mount that bracket with the G-clamp inside the car??

I've used everything from roll cage (obvious!), headrest posts, rear view mirror (used with light webcam only). I also made a clamp for the Gallardo that went under the trim beneath the rear glass.

I'd pretty much make anything given the time/inclination.  I'd planned a vertical post that could bolt in with passenger seat mount, and also something that could be clamped under a centre console lid... but never finished due to the aforementioned time/inclination ;).

The suction pads have worked a treat for us - we've used them in all conditions and they've been fine.

You may not be allowed to use them on track though, they aren't allowed in Classic Adelaide - you need to have a proper support frame etc.

I've got a couple of these (ordered from the same place) that you can use.
