    $10 mount for iPhone. Who needs GoPro!?

    Copied from my post on ls1gto.com,

    I wanted to record video while racing without my wife in the car. I really wanted a GoPro but decided it was too much and I love the video quality on the new iPhones. So after researching different windshield mounts I landed on the Arkon IPM515. It is auto adjusting in size so I can use it with my case still on and it has a very sturdy mount similar to a nice GPS. I made sure to record video with my horrible quality 3G S and my wife's iPhone 4 (for some reason it didn't upload in HD ). I am probably going to get a 4 S or iPhone 5 when it comes out so I can have 1080p video!

    Here are the 2 videos I recorded in the WRX (I'm sidelining the GTO to fix the driveshaft, sorry!) I noticed that with my skull candy case on my 3G S there is no vibration like the iPhone 4 with the "bumper" case. I think this is due to the part that grips the phone is right up against the speaker on the 4 and the skull candy case keeps the grip further away.

    Towards the end of this video I try changing the camera angles a little bit. Enjoy.

    my boyfriend built his own iphone mount out of PVC pipe. it looks kinda silly but did an AMAZING job. i'll update this thread once he finishes the video from a subie cruise we just did. it was very inexpensive as well. probably just around 10$
