7D & Manfrotto suction cup car mount test
Georges Yazbek Georges Yazbek is offline January 2nd, 2010, 09:31 PM

This is a test I shot on the canon 7D for a project I'm working on. The Manfrotto car mount was pretty steady I was pretty amazed by it ($134 value not bad at all).
Shot in Beit Chabeb, Lebanon.

Nicely done.

On the outside shots did you have a second attachment point for safety or only the Manfrotto car mount? Did you tether it in case it came loose? Were you worried it might fall of the car at all?

Did the mount leave any sort of mark on the car? I work with some very expensive cars, so any possibility of damaging the paint would be bad for me. Here's a link to the kind of cars I work with if your interested [shameless self promotion..]

How fast was she driving?

Because of the size and quality of this camera its pretty exciting the kind of shots you can get.

No safety what's so ever ... but I'm not gonna lie, I was scared that the camera might fall. The suction is pretty solid and I've used it couple times already, i must say to you its a very tight grip! the road wasn't bumpy at all, so that helped with getting stable shots ... she was driving between 40 and 60 km/h ( 25/35 m/h )
The suction doesn't leave any mark on the car ... I surely recommend it. it will always come in handy ... i mean you can attach a light to it ... a monitor a camera .... and it's isn't expansive

Very nice clean shots and a nice edit. Congrats.
Which lens(es) did you use? Aperture? ISO?
