          Comments about Vanguard PH-242 Heavy Duty Window Mount:

          I bought this to help video deer hunts. I needed something that would clamp onto the railing of my stand and most of the others on the market do not open wide enough. I clamped it on and tested it. It fit with room to spare and it is a very smooth head. I look forward to filming my daughter whacking some deer this season.

              Appears well built, heavy for such a small unit. Large adjustible opening makes it well suited for attaching to railing, small tree limbs, as well as car windows. Handles six+ pounds of gear. Anxious to get this unit out on the road.

                    Great item. In the past while filming weddings my backup camera was mounted in the balcony of the church. But not very secure. People walking past it, moving it, bumping it etc...Rats!! Poor video from that angle. NOW with the heavy duty mount I can mount it on the railing or ledge with no problem and it's out of the way capturing that great footage that I need. Excellent price and also use it on indie film shoots as well. Works great. And I use B&H quite often as well.

                        We used this window mount with a Canon 7D shooting HD video. The project was easy to use and the head has good range of motion. It picked up the vibrations from the car window, as expected. You will not get smooth shots like you would with a regular car mount. But, if you're shooting objects in the distance, the shake is not noticeable. All in all, we have some very nice footage form this mount.
