I take most of my shots while sitting in my vehicle, hand held. Im just wondering if anyone here on PN uses a window mount, and if so, which one. Ive been doing a little research, but there seems to be quite a few out there so Id like to hear some input from someone who actually uses one. Thanks, Jeff

Jeff, I bought a Wind-Bag Pro a few years ago which I have used whilst travelling through the Kruger National Park, South Africa.

 

Very convenient "simple" product.

That looks like an excellent product perfect for my P900. I was always leary of those that had a three way head attached to a small clip that in turn clipped to the window. To me these put a fair amount of pressure on the window it was not designed to handle. But this product seems not have that issue.

Thanks Herman

Herman, that's a pretty nice price, when one works out the currency conversion.  The only downside is that I couldn't find that product on Amazon or other North American sites.  Only available in South Africa? 

 

Amazon has an assortment of camera beanbags, at varying prices.  Who knew?  :rolleyes:

I bought one of these a number of years ago.  It won't scratch your windows, and I've mounted a number of heads on it depending on my needs.  The heaviest head was a 3047, and it's rock solid.

 

It will pass engine vibrations up to the camera owing to mounting it on glass.  However, I've used it with Nikkors out to 500mm (on my 200-500 zoom), including a 1.4x TC.
