Camera Mount

I am looking for a good camera mount to put on the outside or inside of the car. I don't have a roll bar to hook one up to so I would need one to mount on the window/roof. Any help would be appreciated.

That brings up a good point. At my last autocross somebody had a yellow one with a large suction cup at the bottom that mounted on his roof. I just can't remeber who made it.

The suction cup mounts are allowed with a few organizations.

The one from Chasecam is pretty strong, I have never had it fail.

Hey Justin,
Here's a site I found that has some suction cup mounts similar to what Barry uses on his Z.

http://shop.store.yahoo.com/cinemasu...uccupmoun.html

There are a few for under $100 and several are on sale. Let me know what you go with. I want to get one before next season.

they're generally legal as long as they're tethered, some way of keeping the camera from becoming a missile in the event of a mount failure.

so like hang it on the 1/4 glass and tether it to the seat belt bolt on the inner b-pillar?

i cringe at thinking about my camera fliying off and hitting my door, eek

As you should. Allowances will depend on who it is you're running with, but common sense should prevail even though it rarely does. Personally I wouldn't mount and tether a camera that way, you're asking for it to become a medeival pike and smash you in the face.

A more expensive alternative would be to run those "harness" bars that go between the upper seat belt mounts and then mount the camera to that. http://www.stableenergies.com/ has some harness bars for mustangs.

I made one using the camera mount thing from a tripod and screwed it into the rear deck behind the rear seats. Works pretty good and only took 10 minutes and an old tripod. You still see the camera mount when its not there, but doesnt bother me. Here is a clip i shot off it on a "closed" track. (the sound is off a bit and its about 30mb) http://www.joegorm.com/Videos/quarter%20mile.mpg
