In car camera
 
I am doing a documentary for the Cannonball Run in May, main footage shot on GL2's. I have 3 DCRHC20's that will be in 3 cars, and I would like to either mount them facing out the windshield, or as I have seen in other productions, feed into from smaller camera's mounted under the rear view mirror.

Any suggestions on which might achieve best results?

ahhh you are so lucky!! I wish i could do something like that!

We use a small product that plugs into the camera that can be placed anywhere, inside or out with suction cups. I forget what they are called. but many ocmpaines make nice suction cup type mounts that hold very well!

They did the setups for the DTMpower/Techademicks movies.

Who are you filming the cannonball run for?

Exactly what I was looking for thanks.

We were approached by a participating team with 'an idea'. Although not my specialty, cars are a hobby, and racing is an interest so we thought we would give it a try, and they were willing to go with our lacking experience due to it's inherent price tag.

You can hire me :)

We film a small street racing movie here in the states. check out our site.

Take a look at this site for a comparison between two other car mounts and demos (in the $100 range)

we have this one also. Its rea;;y nice if you have a nice single chip small camera and a nice wide angle.

We actually used this @ a drifting (controlled slide) event when are buddy had are main camera mount.

A good product and not much bounce of the camera.

The car mount in my book, "Killer Camera Rigs That You Can Build" might suit your needs. You can check out a QT movie of it here mounted in different places:

If you decide to go with a commercial version that uses suction cups, I'd really consider getting something with at least 3 suction cups. I've seen the single suction cup rigs fail with really nasty results. Though if you are only mounting on the inside, the worries aren't as big.
