Video of drivers and passengers in a car is a typical shot for movies and TV. What if you want to video yourself and a companion for a travel commentary or vlog? How do you do it? HandlePod and a smartphone makes it easy. Just gently close the window on the two back feet of the HandlePod. Be careful not to apply too much pressure. The HandlePod will be held securely to provide a solid mount for a smartphone with a tripod adapter.

Be careful to position the HandlePod and camera so that the rear view mirror is not blocked. Do not operate or adjust the camera while driving.

A Wide Angle Adaptor Takes In the Whole Scene

You many find that the smartphone is not wide enough to include the driver and passenger. No problem. A wide angle adaptor will give more than enough coverage to include both. The adaptor shown above is available from PhotoJojo. You can also get a fisheye for a more unusual effect.

HandlePod’s unique camera mount allows versatile positioning of small video cameras as well as smartphones. Turn the mount so the camera is upright and position the monitor for easy viewing. Now you have a car-mounted camera to film the driver or passenger for travelogue commentary, scenes for a video production or a personal vlog. Securing the HandlePod to the side windows is a quick and easy way to mount smartphones and small cameras securely inside a car. This is just one of a number of ways to mount a camera on an automobile. HandlePod gives you versatility to use your car as a moving video platform.
