Well I just thought I’d report on the progress of the Limpet Mount project. My crew and I used it today for a traffic report at Adelaide Airport. It had its initial problems like suction cups not sticking where paint was not so smooth on the vehicle but these issues were soon solved. The addition of a couple of octupus straps put my mind at rest and we proceeded with filming.
Later I will post a few photos of the mount on the car so you can see for yourself but for now, here is the final video which is now online at www.5dme.net . No “steadyshot” or “active steadyshot” was used when filming. There was no vibration damping electronically or mechanically in the recording. Footage used was untouched straght from the camera.
