Hi guys,

gearing up for a shoot in a week and a bit and am looking for any advice regarding a car mount as I've never had to rig one without assistance before. We're getting either a Ronford Suction Mount or the Microdolly Car Mount Kit, shooting with an EX1 out on location during the day.

Has anyone used these before? How hard are they to set up? Any general tips and ways of setting up a car mount? Are polirizers absolutely critical if shooting with the windows down?

I've been looking for some kind of reference materials for these two mounts and haven't found any, so if anyone knows where I can get a look at them, would be great.

Thanks a lot,
Alex

hi alex. i haven't done a bunch of car mount shooting but i have shot with the micro dolly mount. the suction cups are extremely strong. i was worried when we first hooked them up but they never slipped. it takes a while to arrange the cups and arms to get the exact angle you need but you get used to it.

hope that helps.
