even some indoor parking garage would work better than your neighbor's driveway...

rarely pays off sticking a nose into somebodys argument but i doubt ste meant to offend you but rather admitted his own mistake not going more aggressive with that lexus shot. of course i may be wrong...
btw i did like the sti shot simply because roads with trees on both sides are my personal favs!

Hi, my name is Arthur, live in the Netherlands and new to this forum. My Camera is a Canon G11 and I am very interested in this thread. I read almost every page, but i am wondering if anybody ever has tried to make a rig themselves? I am trying to make one from 2 class carriers and a carbon windsurfing mast:

IMAGE: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/33/45885955_5b1bdc8b07.jpg?v=0

Is it done before? Is there someone with the experience? Is a carbon mast usable?

And this is my first attempt with a small suction mount:

Thats not too bad. Do they come in kits or do you buy it all separate?
