DIY Dashboard Camera Mount Stabilizes Your Camera on the Cheap

By Jason Fitzpatrick on August 22nd, 2012

Whether you’re trying to film your weekend car chases without a shudder or just want super smooth video of you and your pals rolling through town, this dirt-cheap camera stabilizer turns your dashboard into a tripod.

One Dollar Store peanut sponge and scrap of high-grip rug padding combined with a few minutes of measuring and cutting is all it takes to craft a vibration dampening and stable camera mount. Check out the video above to see the build process (skip to the last 20 seconds or so to see the sponge-mount in action).

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
