I'm ready to buy a video camera mount for my Neon. This is a street car with no handy rollbars, and I don't have megabucks for a special micro-cam. Thanks to Jeff Cashmore, I have a recommendation for the Bogen 3289, Suction Grip with Camera Support, and a Quick-disconnect Adapter Bogen 3270.

A couple weeks ago i bought a Race Case camera mount. I had fabricated several mounts last year with little success. The Race Case worked okay out of the box but it had distortion at both idle and Redline. You could see what was going on but it kinda looked like the graveyard scenes from Easyrider. I wondered what was the problem.

I figured out that the housing of the Race Case was coming in contact with the outside of the camera. Race Case provided open cell foam to line the inside. The foam should be cut to fit each individual camera. I also realized that strap on the side of the camera (which could not be removed) kept the camera from fitting in the Race Case properly.

I milled windows in the sides to allow the strap to be outside the case. Also the Sony camera I'm using has the off/on switch on the right side and it was difficult to turn on inside the Case. Once again mill a window to make it easier to turn on. This kept the off/on switch from hitting the Race Case and turning itself off and on. These Mods to the Race Case have improved the picture quality greatly.

If you are going to use one of these units be prepared to do some experimenting to make it work right.
