    Camcorder mount

    Can anyone suggest a good camcorder mount that works well in a 997?

    Re: Camcorder mount

    I have a feeling Carlos will have the perfect answer to that one . . .

    Re: Camcorder mount

    Try the "Sticky Pod Camera Mount", works really well inside or on an exterior surface (really).

    Review here sums it all up:

    If you look at some of the test videos they shot using this thing you'll see how neat it is. Can vouch for it working well on a 997S but didnt want to mount it externally!

    actually, mine was kind of a home-made job in order to be able to get all those unorthodox exterior angles

    Re: Camcorder mount

    I have a Sticky Pod and it works pretty darn well.
    You can order it in different versions here www.stickypod.com

    Only problem with filming outside the car is the noise you get into the microphone.
    You will need either some sort of microphone-"bag" or "sock" to mount on the mic and soften the wind noise or you will need an extension cord and a mic to place in the cabin.

    I haven't used the sticky pod much yet, but its great fun.
    A couple of still pics for you taken from a test film I made.

    Re: Camcorder mount

    Notice the camera shadow.
    As you can see, the camcorder is mounted on a rod and theres a safety line attached to the camcorder.
    You can get rods in diff lengths and also StickyPods in 2 diff sizes.
    I picked the full package cuz it had the most suction cups and hence (my conslusion) more safety.

    From another angle, mounted on another spot

    Re: Camcorder mount

    And a front mount close to the wheel.

    Re: Camcorder mount

    And a last one. I almost destroyed the camera going into this corner, cuz I forgot the mount was sticking out appr. 50 cm.

    Fortunately nothing happened. But PLEASE remember to not ride close to pedestrians, bikers or more inanimate objects.
    You could get your camera scratched... hehe

    Very Cool, Doctor!
