Shooting Video Inside a Car Is Easy with HandlePod

Attaching a camera to various locations on a car is a common practice for video. Hollywood uses elaborate rigs and supports to get views from the interior and exterior of a moving vehicle.

Still from video of a driver shot with a camera phone mounted on a HandlePod secured to the passenger headrest.

One such perspective would be a view of the driver and the car interior from the passenger’s side. HandlePod makes this easy by attaching to the passenger’s side headrest. This is a perfect location for a camera that duplicates the point of view of a passenger looking at the driver.

 

Use a Camera Phone for Best Results

HandlePod secured to headrest holds a camera phone for a view of the driver.

A phone is the best camera to use for this application since a headrest is not totally solid. A phone is light enough to be supported easily on a HandlePod secured to a headrest.

It is an excellent POV technique for amateur videographers who don’t have the time or budget for elaborate camera rigs. It is fast, simple and demonstrates the versatility of HandlePod and its easy attachment using the elastic cord.
