I've never seen a ring stay. Just always wax before, then wipe off after. If you forget, should be just a quick re-wax (real carnuba, not quick-detail crap), and the ring should go away easily. If the ring is in the paint, or starshield (which I have seen), it'll go away after some time in the sun.

I've been thinking about getting a rig for a while, and trying to figure out how/where to mount it on cars. I'm a little anal when it comes to the paint on my own car, so I would be wary of mounting the suction cups on paint vs. glass. Have you ever had issues with paint damage (rings, orange peel, etc)?

I know angles would be more limited mounted only on glass, as well as dependent on whether or not the car has a sunroof.

All the shots of the 350Z were driving shots, but don't think they too bad for 15-20mph shots..

Good job, but it seems like you're soft at the far end on all but the first one. Make sure you're shooting at f11 minimum, that should cure it.

Yeah I was wondering why it's like that. I was shooting at f22 on most of the shots, still trying out to figure out what's the best way to set-up focusing. What works best if you don't mind telling me how you do it?

I don't mind at all. I always focus on the closest intricate thing, like a headlight, then lock the focus so I no longer have to worry about it during the shoot. Maybe it's your boom causing the softness at the rear, are you getting a lot of movement?

My first boom would give me similar results if I wasn't going slow and steady enough.

The softness in the rear is most likely due to the bounce.

The Avenger F1000 cup supports 4.41 lbs by the literature, and is unsuitable, and unsafe for rig-shots, period. Many people have used them, and continue to use them without issue, however, some are not so lucky...

Once you get woods there is no going back, love that they are a softer rubber and how fast the pump down

and woods hold like what almost 80 pounds?
