Suction mount for my hood, windshield, etc.

Could someone recommend a good suction cup mount to hold my Pana DV852 on the hood or window of a car?

Please don't recommend the Stickypod, they refused to sell me one when they found out I'm a lawyer in my day job, pfffftttt... Whattayagonado?

Thanks and

Cheers...

Do a search, there are a few sources. there's an outfit in LA and one in the UK that has a nice setup. manfrotto also have one.

If i find it , i'll post it.

what does the fact that you're a lawyer have to do with stickypod not selling you one of their items?

I know, and I'm a nice lawyer, I help people with their patents and stuff like that. I even sent them a description of my DV project, but they still won't sell me one. Too bad, it looks like they have a pretty nifty product.

Check out the Microdolly web site.

I think it's www.microdolly.com

I have theirs and it works beautifully.

Not cheap but well worth the investment.

As a lawyer, this will be chump change......<grin>

Thanks for all the great links! That Microdolly mount looks super-flexible. I requested the price, I suspect it will be high.

Cheers...
