CruiseCam CRUISE-1 overview

  • 1Description

The CruiseCam Short Bar Headrest Camera Mount clamps to any twin-post passenger-seat headrest to capture the driver's point of view from inside an automobile. It mounts any compact camcorder (up to 5 lb) via its standard 1/4"-20 screw.

The sturdy clamps are made of die-cast aluminum, and the tubing is anodized extruded aluminum. The mount as a whole is extremely stiff, enabling the capture of high-quality, shake-free video of the vista beyond the windshield.

For all this stability, the mount is easy to assemble in minutes without using any tools.

The 18"-long headrest mount can be adjusted in three dimensions so you can achieve perfect framing. The lightweight, portable mount was developed for professional car-racing applications before being adapted to be used by the rest of us.

    Short Bar Headrest Camera Mount is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 32.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for use with GoPro Hero. I got this mount for to use with my GoPro camera. I often have to drive really long distances (Chicago to east coast) for work and I like to set up the camera in a time lapse mode then compile it later. The mount is easy to install and i didn't really notice it. For the price it is the best out there.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for the track I normally use this for track days. The camera sits steady, and the material its made out of is sturdy and has a heavy duty feel.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good for a GoPro but... ...not stiff enough for a heavy professional DSLR or even a lighter video camera.I've been testing it for in car shots, which it's designed for. The car I'm using has Recaro seats which seem very stiff, but the best images come from a weighted seat. I've tried a pile of strapped sand bags and adding tension to an empty passeneger seat but very shaky but I don't blame the mount, I blame the empty passenger seat.Works well enough for the money on the driver's seat with a GoPro cam though, the driver's weight stabilises the seat well enough. I don't know what the big rubber thing is useful for though. The docs say it works for leveling and vibration reduction. I've found that it's far more useful as a door stop or the trash can. Conclusion: works very well with very light video camera and comes with a useless chunk of rubber that might have other purposes, just not for this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stable Pretty cool item to have! I use it for POV shots & video. It's solid and fits my Sony A7ii. I have a modified car with stiff suspension and with all the bounce, it holds still pretty well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great It works great just wish it could extend longer out so you can center the camera more beside that it is a great mount for the price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shaky, no quick release A good idea, but I got a dual feeling about this mount. First - it really works, but the picture is not very stable. Although you cannot expect too much from this mount since the headrest is a shaky enough location in the car. Second - I think it's overpriced. The rubber piece is worthless and I removed it right away. It's very inconvenient to remove your camera every time when you leave your car, even for a second. You have to unscrew it and it rather kills, wears out your camera mount hole and thread. Finally you cannot change the height of the camera and bend it to left-right if you need to. All these limitations can be resolved with this item: Slik SBH-120DQ BALL HEAD w/QUICK RELEASE - SLBH120DQ. But I had to buy it separately, and that doubled the price of the whole mount. Weird! So the whole mount can be estimated as a $80 piece, which is too much. I needed it and that's the only reason why I paid this amount. But that's why I think that the price is too high for this poor design. I have seen similar devices on the Internet for just $20, but they were sold before I ordered. Anyway, if you want to use this mount you need to think about a quick release and something to make it higher, because it is too low if you want to use it in a minivan. Still 4 stars because I can use it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product Quality build Sturdy mount. Does not feel cheap. Definitely better security than a suction cup mount.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cruise cam Good product. Wish it was about 6 inches longer so that it would be more centered in between the seats.
