Onboard the 135

I did some experimenting with onboard camera mounting today using the Canon 500D, a Flip Mino, and a BMW 135i. Nothing spectacular, but if you're familiar with what numbers are where on this car's speedo I think you'll agree that it's not exactly poking along. I used a standard tripod and some bungee cords to mount the DSLR behind the front seats with a 10-22mm lens set at 10, and a Panavise suction cup clamp holding the Flip for this. Next time I need to get the DSLR lower so the rear view mirror isn't so much in the way, drive a twistier road, faster, with better mounting angles for the Flip, and perhaps someone else to play with?
