i have seen some of the DIY jobs on vortex, but just not impressed

saw the suction cup ones online - but am just scared to "suction" a camera onto the outside of a moving car

anyone got suggestions for a headrest mount
my passenger seat shows some vibration when empty
so would need to mount it to my seat
or back seat

suggestions?

I copied a nifty sandwitch style mount it clamps on the headrest rods and with picture stabilization it should be fine.

I think I would have to mount my cam to the DRIVERS headrest and not the passenger
there is visable vibration in pass seat when it is empty

I only have a Dig Camera now for pics it takes short crappy videos

but I think I am gettin the APR removed, gonna try to get refunded; and use that money to buy video camera and mount

read my reply post.

fyi, the cruisecam can mount to either driver's side or passenger's side.
