You guys will surely see, I had so much if inspiration and wanted to make an on budget stuff and the results are quite good! =)

The price was of the whole thing was about 180$

With all poles, 2 times the wiring cause had to re-think and bu them twice, 4 suction caps, and some other materials.

I think its quite cheap =)

I totallly forgot that I took pictures at the first attempt, we had such a big wind and the boom was too shaky to make anything good so after that we redesigned some part of it.

Picture 1-2 remained the same
Picture 3 became as P1-2 and has a vertical pole on that leg for fastening from the sides
Picture 4 is the new arm it can be unfasten and turned as you wish. There is a wire for it to fasten more.

Picture 5 is a test shot. P6 is the best we could make out of it, and that one was made of 2 shots. I did not spent much time on the retouch, just to see how it should look like.

This part is not existing anymore, like that. Its now on two suction caps, higher, and with a nice cap at the end of the tube, never touches the roof, I have tested it!

I had the same fear when I saw, and we tested on that black wreck renault and the very first setzup was not this safe, so we have fixed it.

Its hard without pictures now, but On Monday I'll have more I hope!

Awsome setup!

I am intrested of what kind of ND filter you have? 32 or 64? Maybe a brand and some thoughts?

Thank you so much in advance!

I don't own an ND yet, I was using a circular polarizer though, so I have a stop and some chnage or so of reduction. Shooting at ISO 50 was helpful too, even though ISO 100 would have worked just as well at a slighty higher f/stop. I just wanted to try 50.

I'm looking at picking up a .9 ND filter from B+W which is 3 stops of light reduction. I can't really say more than that since I haven't used an ND extensively yet. Hopefully I can stack my ND and polarizer and not loose too much noticeable IQ or have any weird light issues associated with stacking filters.

I took this photo as the sun dipped behind the mountain ridge over in the left side of the frame and that light lasted for 10 minutes or so and then was gone.

exif for this photos is 2 seconds f/10 ISO 50 @ 20mm
