You could probably poke a length of 2"x4" (timber) through the windows of a car and tape a camera to the end. Why can't you just rest a 2"x4" on the boot or hood of a car (with a sandbag at one end to balance the weight)? That would cost very little. Really, I think it would work if you had the PS skills needed to hide the 'rig'.

The reason it costs much more is for the security, flexibility and reliability that the extra dollars give you. If you don't need security, flexibility or reliability then use a 2"x4" and some Gaffa tape!

How those pinch clamps can be attached under the car? Example diy clamps or automotiverigs.com clamps?
Does anyone have a picture one of those mounted to car?

A little less than one full second for the shots before.

The shots here are done with a circular polarize stacked on a Hoya nd .6 filter nx4
Taken at 1 second - 1.5 second.

really nice, my only beef with these is that you've possibly taken a stationary shot of the vehicle and cloned that on to the rolling shot (the lack of blur in the reflections in the paint work gives it away). good work though!

Actually it wasn't a composite of a static and a rolling shot. But i see what you mean by the lack of movement in the paint work. I was trying to not blur out the background too much, so there is a bit of balancing i still have to learn between the shutter speed and the amount of background movement.

Much appreciate your comments. :)
