I already posted this here, but I see my post was deleted (maybe because of the problems SSC had today).
@hofburg: you can try this

I have seen a bus(without a trailer, though), that had similar windows and sleeping spaces for passengers.

I use Gorillapod:

I wrap legs around rear mirror holder, so that camera firmly hangs upsidedown. Then I turn around and compress video with a nice program called FormatFactory.

Why does it have to be upside-down?

Interesting, what type do you exactly use? The legs must be long enough to get around the mirro.

I just bought the gorilla pod for € 24,99 at Mediamarkt. I hate how those pods are quite expensive if you consider how little material they use. I also want to use it to make time-lapse videos from bridge railings.

I use the same method as Chris, utilizing velcro strips. However, it is now a bit more difficult on the dash of my Acura CSX (a Canadian luxury version of the Civic). The dashboard on the 2006+ Civic is very large, but it's not flat.

However, overall it's still not too bad. In the first two videos I made the camera was pointed a little too high, but still not too bad. In the latest video I made, I used an eraser to adjust the height

I still have to upload all 3 videos to Youtube, though. Can't seem to find the time to edit.

Speaking of Slovakia , i had a Lithuanian Waitress and Slovakian Waterboy at the Tick Tock Diner the other day. It was quite the interesting ethic mix.

thats chinese stuff is crap. on amazon.fr is one for 19 € though. some cameras/camcorders even come with it out of the box.

lithuanians aren't slaves, right? so why are you pretty close? (correct me if I am wrong)

a question: I am going to buy a pocket 1080p camcorder (something like that. ) does it have to have a optical zoom for shooting driving videos? or it's possible to record a video without zoom without dashboard on it.

Hehe , the diner has a wide range of cultures working for it. Mostly European & American the day shift and the overnight shift is American & Latino. Its a 24/7 Diner on a popular highway that feeds into NYC. The area where the diner is located is Indian , Polish , and Italian. They own stores and businesses. I go there to buy my real Italian pastas and Polish Deserts. Its nice living in a melting pot Region. The other day i met a Dutch - German Couple on the train.

I was also thinking about that..

anyway, Slavic people really can`t understand that, it`s totaly different from any Slavic language..

Quote:
Lithuanian still retains many of the original features of the nominal morphology found in the common ancestors of the Indo-European languages like Sanskrit and Latin, and has therefore been the focus of much study in the area of Indo-European linguistics. Studies in the field of comparative linguistics have shown it to be the most conservative living Indo-European language.

Lithuanian and other Baltic languages passed through Proto-Balto-Slavic stage, during which Baltic languages developed numerous exclusive and non-exclusive lexical, morphological, phonological and accentual isoglosses with Slavic languages, which represent their closest living Indo-European relative. Moreover, with Lithuanian being so archaic in phonology, Slavic words can often be deduced from Lithuanian by regular sound laws.

Same here, I cannot browse fluently for some weeks now, maps work fine, but satelite images are loading slow with lag. I think their server is overheating.
