I have been searching for a suction cup camera mount. I want to be able to mount a video camera on side, front or rear window, inside the car.

The links are what I found. Does anyone have any of these products or a similar type that works?

I do not have a harness bar and I want to be able to mount in any car that I am in. So, the tube, headrest, or bar mounts would not be acceptable.

I have lurked here for awhile. This is my first post.

First welcome to DC. I have not used any of those products but just by reading about them I would be tempted to try one of the first two. The only concern I would have is vibration it doesn't really say any thing about dampening bumps and such. Are you useing it for drag racing, auto x or just for fun? Good luck and let us know what you come up with.

Thanks for the welcome.

I'll be using it for Autox, drags, some street "fun" and road courses. I am concerned about the vibration too. If I can get a good suction cup connection on the glass I think I can rig up something to stabilize the camera. I also have the anti-jitter function on my camera which really helps too.

It would need a tether strap to keep it away from the driver for sure if that happened. One of the linked products has one for $5.00 bucks or so but it is just a normal polywoven strap.

I've seen guys put a tri-pod on the passenger floor, and secure it to the seat with a bracket or other method. I've seen this more than once.

Whatever you stablize the camera with it should keepit from wacking you if it should fly off. Man I can't wait to see some videos now.:excited:
