    Does anyone have one? www.stickypod.com

    I'm thinking of getting the Sticky Pod ProPak with a 12" extension and an extra tether next week.

    I do ton's of automotive phtography, so this would come in handy. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with them, and whatnot.

    It's been on my to-do list for a long time. Just wanted to get a remote for my still camera, or a better video camera first. Let me know what you think of it when you get it.

    My boss had one for storm chasing, but he said it was always a pain in the ass when he had to move it quickly or take the camera off quickly. He just uses a window mount most of the time now.

    That's exactly what I had in mind, plus interesting angles for the video camera too... I plan on building a protective housing, or modifying an underwater housing to protect the camera, then get some cool external footage from off roading. Could stick the mount to the door and have it aimed at the front wheels, and as I go over an interesting obstacle I can swing the door open to pan the shot :big grin:

    You can also stick the camera to the hood or something and use your car as a Dolly to get some smooth footage of rolling through a car show lineup or something. Can get quite creative with that Stickypod thing. My only problem is that when the doors and roof are off, my Jeep is actually left with very little flat surfaces large enough for the stickypod, but I'll figure it out :)

    I have one. If the car has any wax on it, it won't stick for crap. It can't even hold my D200 with VG and the 18-70 lens for more than a minute before the suction cups start losing grip.

    It worked fine with my Sony F-717 before doing those types of rolling shots. I would just push the car from behind and let it fire via timer.

    i have one. I got the ultra expensive version with the knuckles, two tether straps and two extensions. I like it personally. Never had any problems, its well built and seems rather sturdy. EDIT: I use a video camera with it. Never tried the deefifty with it.
