Clamp for car boat

Hi Guys i have a couple weddings with special cars and am doing time-lapse on the dashboard travelling to the reception, I want to put a camcorder on it and leave till I see bride later when she arrives also a canal boat wedding to cover and need some sort of clamp or something for a small camcorder to film at the front of s canal boat so it can time-lapse the boat coming to its finale.
The camcorder would sit at the front of the boat and I will not be there just set up and leave to film. Any suggestions, cheap suction clamp or??

Hey Steve

I have two SJ4000 action cams exactly for this sort of thing ... I don't think I would put something like a GH4 on a dashboard though ...I don't mind if one of my action cams get knocked around but that would be all I would risk unattended in a car ... The SJ4000 series also use the same fittings and accessories as GoPro so the suction arm for either would work but I would rather put the suction cup on the windscreen as it's a smoother surface than a dash! I often pop an action cam in the limo for some extra footage between the house and the venue and the suction cup mount works really well.

Re: Clamp for car boat

Where on the canal boat are you thinking of attaching the camera?

I ask as you will need to clamp it to something, apart from the windows at the front, you will struggle to get a suction clamp to stick. Magnets on the other hand will work great :-)
