Photoshop it out of the pic. It's very easy.

Hmm, I guess, seems like a lot of work when someone else can just do it from another car.

Not really considering you need two cars and at least 3 people to take motion shots without a rig.

With the arm....its you, the equipment, and the subject....all on your own time, patience, and creativity.

Moving shots are cool, they just don't appeal to me. It is always just the same thing- a photo of a car driving, blurry background, front 3/4 angle. Kind of boring if you ask me. I wouldn't mind having one or two photos like that of my car, but I don't need an expensive piece of equipment to take a billion shots of the same thing at a slightly different angle. Also there isn't a background, since it's all blurry, you can take a photo of the car in the crappiest area and it doesn't matter because it's all blurry.

It takes a lot more skill to make a good motion shot then a still. Who cares if you canít see the background thatís the point it shows MOTION which makes the pics real and unique and creative.

Putting up your high dollar camera to get a moving shot is hardly anything "standard" according to the female spokeswoman of the forum.

That does not look like it is an easy shot to take, and while may lose in so called "creativity" points it is easily regained by "skill" points for the shot.

Watch out diesel, next thing you know you are going to hear abouth how the e90 is perfect stock and you overmodded

Ryan...go for it I can only imagine what wonderful images you can create with this, you've done so much without the rig. Seriously, you can easily recoup the $700 by charging (nominally) folks for professional car photoshoots

I'm thinking about getting three sticky pods to make my Best Motoring style videos. That arm seems pretty cool too.

Make one as good for under $700 and you will have me as you first buyer. Rigs are not as simple as they look, to get a clear shot from a pole connected to a moving vehicle requires some engineering.
