Anyone know of any camera equipment/grip rental companies in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area? I need a simple camera mount for a car for this weekend. The three legged suction cup type, like one of these:

We're not that far away in New York, and we have the Panther Multi-mount.

Thanks, I am aware of that. However I am not the person who is picking up the equipment. They reside in South Jersey and I can blame them for not wanting to make the drive to Manhattan.

I looked at your link and that mount looks pretty sturdy and seems to be not a bad price if
and I can't tell by looking, it can also mount on he door so that you can get conversation shots
looking in at the driver and passengers.

To be more specific, it looks like it would probably mount (although how does it handle curved
surfaces) but can you tilt the cheese plate to get the shot? Thanks.

I don't know the Panther Multi-mount. How does it compare to the other rig discussed here?
Thanks.

You can try Location Lighting (locationlighting.com) or Videosmith rentals (videosmith.com) in Philadelphia. They should have what you are looking for.

It's a three-legged suction cup rig just as you first mentioned.

Thanks. How do you feel about Stickypod Pro for the HVX-200?
