    Hey guys, I'm looking for a good car-mount option for my Canon 7D. I've found these two so far:

    I have this one, and it works good. It feels safer with 2 suction pads. We were driving 120 km/h with the 7D and a Tokina 11/16, and it didn't fall... But anyways we were REALLY scared.

    I have the Delkin. It came highly recommended. I haven't got a chance to put it through the paces yet.

    The Delkin is useless unless you feed your viewers Gravol.

    Whenever working with a car mount you should try to safety strap the camera to the car somehow, either to the mirror, or even to a wiper blade or something, that way if the mount fails you're not totally doomed.
