Shooting dramatic action sequences from a moving vehicle is now easy with the Digital Juice Spyder Pod Vehicle Camera Mounting System. This innovative system consists of three components; 3 suction mounts, a camera mounting plate, and length adjustable legs. The 4.75” vacuum-actuated suction mounts come with locking pins on the side and adjustable ball joints for flexible positioning. They help to securely fasten the system onto smooth surfaces or windshields of automobiles.

The system features three 3”, 6”, and 12” rods, each with a diameter of 7/8” to provide you with a strong and stable mounting base. These interchangeable multi-length legs can also be linked together in various combinations to suit your shooting needs.

The versatile camera mounting plate accommodates almost all camera units. It sports one 3/8"-16 and eleven 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holes, along with a thru-hole for each thread pitch, for easy attachment of accessories like lights, monitors, and articulating arms. You can also connect a fluid head (sold separately) for enabling smooth and flexible camera movements by using the optional Digital Juice High Hat Raiser unit, which can be attached using four 1/4"-20 holes.

The mounting stage of the plate comes with 2 attachment points, each fitted with 2 adjustable locking ratchet joints for tilt and swivel. This no-slip ratchet system features a spring-loaded ball bearing mechanism and can be easily locked or unlocked.

The Spyder system comes with a safety kit that includes 2 suction-mount safety anchors, 3 variable-length safety straps, 2 pinch-strap anchors, 2 hook-and-loop anchor straps, 2 carabiner anchor straps, and a set of soft cloth bags that can be used to storing and organizing. Additionally, the safety kit can also be used to secure your camera and mount with up to 3 additional anchors on the vehicle.

    Digital Juice RIG4 reviews

    Spyder Pod Vehicle Camera Mounting System is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Multiple parts failed, questionable quality We liked the design and it was great.. for a while.� Then one of the top locks wouldn't lock any more and two of the suction cups failed which cost over $200 shipped to replace. Don't like it so much anymore.� We replaced it with the Matthews systems, less versitle but bombproof so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great unit Used this on a vehicle shoot to highlight tires, worked great! Only complaint I have is the adjustment is a little tedious and you need a pair of channel locks to be sure everything is truly tightened into place, but when it is setup the functionality is good to go. Used a ball-head on it for great results.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As good as it looks As far as car mounts go, this is one of the best ones that I've used. The first thing that stuck out to me was the quality. The aluminum and stainless steel make the unit feel solid, and the suction mounts are so rugged that I felt totally safe mounting my DSLRs. I was going to try a much heavier camera than your typical DSLR (ie. 20 lbs), but I did feel more nervous about that.The carrying case itself is also quite impressive. I was actually surprised at the craftsmanship and materials that went into it.The mount is very versatile and can be set up in many different ways all over your car, but this doesn't happen extremely quickly, but it is still relatively fast. There is a lot of experimenting when mounting this unit because you are not always sure if the leg length you chose is the correct size, which means you then have to twist the suction mount off, twist the leg off the base, then twist on a different leg, twist on the suction mount again and then finally try re-mounting. If you can take your time when setting up the mount then you're going to have good results; it's not like slapping on a GoPro.The smoothness of your shot will really depend on how you mount the rig and the vehicle's quality of ride. My first test had some shake to it at times, but the mount was not well supported on the bottom. Later during an actual shoot I made sure to support the lower end as much as possible which made every shot perfectly smooth. I actually couldn't believe how smooth the shots were especially since I was moving around 50 mph.My four star rating stems from a few issues I had. First there was no mounting screw for a camera, and since I didn't have a spare at home I needed to pick one up. Second I have had some issues with the ratcheting joints that lock down the legs. Sometimes one will become overly tight even after I simply finger tighten it, and then it really isn't all that easy to loosen it up again. I have also had a ratcheting joint come undone meaning that I cannot lock down the leg at all. I've been attempting to repair it without taking anything apart and have been unsuccessful...at least once everything else it locked down it's hard to anything. Last, while the safety equipment is a great addition (especially the extra safety suctions mounts), the straps don't get very taught. I might be missing something, but everytime I try and tighten the straps they just go limp. I actually just use bungee cords with the safety suction mounts.For the price that I paid early on, it is worth the money. At full retail price I would need to consider the importance of needing a mount much more. In the end though I don't know that you'll find a mount this well put together in the same price range.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value and solid mount I bought this mount for shooting a tire commercial and it proved to be great value. While not exactly cheap, it will give your camera a rock steady and secure mount in various positions on or in the car and is much better value than some more expensive rigs. We had a RED scarlet with side handle and lens hanging off the side of the car shooting the wheel with no problems. The only vibration/movement came from the actual body panels of the car flexing. This comes with three main suction points, and two more suction cups with eyelets and straps for extra security. The case it comes with is fantastic too - every has a place and easy to keep organized. I only have two reasons for not giving it 5 stars: - The metal set screws on the ball joints attached to the suctions cups is of low-quality and you have to be careful not to strip them as you tighten them up. Not a big deal, and the fabrication of all the other components is top notch. - You'll need the high-hat (not included) or some additional hardware for attaching a camera. The mounting base plate has no hardware for attaching a camera and is about 1/2 inch thick, so you'll need some longer bolts for attaching a quick release plate or screwing directly into the bottom of the camera. I used a high-hat and tripod head I had from my Kessler Cine Slider (standard bolt pattern!) and it was good to go. A high hat will also provide a MUCH faster way to level the camera, and is almost essential in my opinion.
