Hi all,

Thought i'd share a very cheap and easy way to mount a video camera in-car.

Get a joby gorrilapod for about £30 from Amazon (the bigger one).

Pull back the back seat a bit and wedge 2 of the gorrilapods legs in.


Wrap both seatbelts round the 3rd leg..


Then the camera screws onto the gorrilapod

A still picture of footage taken


Will find out tomorrow if it'll be allowed on track but it's a solid enough mount i think!

It's good to get the camera as far back as poss unless you have a wide angle lens. Perfect position for a skyline

Cheers all,
Sam

Looks like a good position. The trouble I find with camera mounted up front is that you never get to see how you are driving which kind of defeats the point of an onboard camera on the track to use for improvement purposes.

It will be interesting to see how that handles the vibrations.

Adam - i checked that sightand looks like some good stuff..

However, very pleased with my mount design;)

Marshalls at Brands today didn't have an issue with it and the footage was great!

I'm just uploading a vid to youtube -7mins long, two and a half hours to upload, 1gig:chuckle:..

Will post it once it's done..

Camera and mount have been checked and passed at Brands... If you were a jew applying for a visa to germany in 1940 you'd have about as much front as i had going to the brands staff with my camera mount.. It still passed:thumbsup:

looks good, works really well with no vibration which kills most set ups.

the 35 driver likes his brakes - :D
