    Default Car door mount

    Hi all,

    I am looking to mount my camera lens combo to my door. I've always found a bean bag to be perfect for stills, but as I do more and more filming, I really want the extra stability.

    Anyone have one of the ones on the market? I've only found at OutDoorPhoto on an initial search.

    Anyone done a DIY?

    I've got a pretty hefty Nikon D850 + 500mm f4 combination, so I don't want to risk it crashing to the floor.

    Regards,

    Tim Hulme

    Have done a DIY, but don't ask for pictures...

    My rig is similar in weight, and is totally secure. Unlike any commercial option I have ever seen, it is also height adjustable.

    Have a look at a Gimpro. Very well-made product. Not cheap but definitely worth it.

    I am considereing this. Quite expensive, but well made. Considering the cost of your gear, you dont want to skimp on a mount. Would you use a R100 tripod for a dslr and 500mm lens?

    Cause it's horribly ugly since I never did get around to painting it.

    But here it is after all.
