Hey folks,

So I have a Sony FDR AX700 handicam. I primarily use this camera to capture zoomed in footage for my YouTube videos which are not weather related. I mainly use the GoPro 8 for all my filming because its small and it is so stable!! But I video venomous snakes and the zoom function allows me to get inches away from a rattlesnake without getting "poop my pants" close enough! ;)


I might locally chase here and there if I get a bug in me to do it.

So for that particular camera, is there a good mount that any of you would recommend to be able to mount inside my vehicle? Preferably to view out the front windshield?

The Gripper 115 is the one that I use routinely and it has performed nothing short of superior.

One thing to mention is, if you have the slightest crack in a windshield from hail / debris, the suction cup mount for the Gripper 115 is extremely powerful It will cause a crack to spread to that area nearly instantly as I so recently found out, and once the crack invades the surface space where the mount attaches to the windshield, it will not hold vacuum at all, so be mindful of this.
