Playing around with my digital camera mounted and unmounted in car...

On the way home from the track the other day, I mounted the camera on the tripod in the car. Then I set the shutter at different speeds and used the timer to take some automated pictures while I was driving.

The next day took a few a more. This time without the camera mount. Both of them provided for some interesting effects I think.

The camera mount in my car is a simple project involving an old tripod, drill, and some U-bolts. Perform some basic measurements around your head rest supports (assumes yours are removable). Then drill and call it done more or less. Cheap and effective. I thought for video it would be shakey, but most video camera have built-in stabilizers.
