Brought a Camera Kit

Having a bunch of video cameras around, I figure I may start doing some video filming. Order a camera suction holder from Filmtools.com and just got it the other day. Here is the first test run with my video camera attached to the top of my car (may not be the best place, going to play around in the next few days to see what gives the best angles).

Anyway, here is a short clip of my first video run. Nothing crazy, was just driving around the block. Enjoy

pretty cool. my eyes keep wanting to look up. maybe you should point the camera up a bit higher, but I'm sure you know that already. aside from that, cool vid.

I like your driveway.

You need to angle the camera up a bit so you capture more of the road ahead. I'm sure playing around with it you'll find the best angle. I think I would try mounting it on the side of the car. But with it sticking out like that you wouldn't want to run around in traffic.

Cheers.

I got a camera mount from filmtools.com

http://www.filmtools.com/gripper-302...era-mount.html

6 inch suction cup, very solid and strong.

Camera was the Flip Video HD

http://www.amazon.com

Very simple, elegant HD Video camera. Easy to use and easy to download to a computer.
