I'm back! After an enjoyable short drive out I now have my first in car footage from the S2000, shot in gorgeous 1080p on the Galaxy S3. Everything worked as planned, at least after the first trial run when I realised the rattling sound behind me was the nuts on the mount coming undone as I'd only done them up finger tight... I now need to try to minimize the wind noise (having the windows up helped but I might try some foam over the microphone) and I need to remove the Magic Tree before the next run!

Watch on Youtube (full screen) for full 1080p loveliness ;-)
 
After recording various videos in my previous car using a phone mount on the windscreen, I decided I wanted something with a better point of view in the S2000. It wasn't long before I found the Modifry website. I hadn't realised that I already had one of their products in my car, the incredibly handy glovebox organiser - a couple of thin plastic shelves that slot together in a way to give a much better use of the small storage space. I decided to go for the low profile glovebox mount, which cost around £40 including shipping to the UK. The next step was to find a way to mount a phone using the standard thread on the mount, so my next purchase was a cheap £10 Ebay tripod, with a spring loaded attachment to firmly hold the sides of the phone. It took a long time to be delivered (from China!) but once it did, it was clear it was perfect for the job, the clamp holding the phone much tighter than I had expected. The Modifry base was fitted in around 10 minutes and handily enables to the mount to be clipped on and off in seconds. All that's left now is to go out and test it...
