Car Mount Video Test

So last year I bought a Panavise 809 car mount for my camera. I managed to shoot a bunch of video last year but I didn’t really have enough time to get everything right.

I ran more video tests this morning because I’m hoping to record some video on the road the next time I drive to South Carolina. I think getting video of some of the mountainous regions would be especially fun.

Anyway, I’m still having a few issues. The video seems pretty stable for the most part, but there’s some glare on the windshield and I’m not sure if there’s anything I can actually do to correct that.

Here’s a quick sample if anyone is curious.

The video quality isn’t bad considering how small my little point-and-shoot camera is. The diminutive size of the camera definitely makes it easier to set up and doesn’t put much strain on the mount. The camera is a Canon 780IS.


It’s a long drive to South Carolina. Unfortunately, a 16gb memory card only holds about 85 minutes of hi-def video. I’ll definitely need to get more cards and probably a couple extra battery packs. But I’m looking forward to it. It should be a lot of fun.
