Mount Your Camera to Your Car
There are some elaborate rigs for attaching a camera to a car. But when it comes to "build versus buy," one product makes building a solution a tough sell.

There are certain shots that are difficult to acquire, particularly those that are shot from a moving vehicle. Instead of building some elaborate apparatus to mount your camera to a car, you can purchase a heavy-duty suction cup, with camera mount, called The Cleat. It is manufactured by PowrGrip (http://www.powrgrip.com) and can be purchased online at http://shop.store.yahoo.com/cinemasupplies/cleatsuccamm.html for $75. Using The Cleat, and a camera that weighs less than 10 pounds, you can capture great shots from a moving vehicle, or from just about anywhere there's a smooth surface.
