Oops. Back to the drawing board.
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The connecting ball is above the camera. So the pedestal on the Portable Friction Mount is in front of the camera. So back to the drawing board for research and development. A hint, two legs with an opening in between the legs instead of a solid pedestal would do the trick.
Pros: Nice mount!
Cons: Camera takes a lovely picture of the pedistal support. Unless I am missing something, but can't imagine what!
