MSE Master Mounts Take A 145 MPH Pounding With Ease

Burbank, CA. _ One of Matthews Studio Equipment’s newest clients, Jeff Glucker, a specialist in the automotive industry, recently put MSE’s MASTER MOUNTS to the ultimate challenge. He paired the mounts with his Canon 5D MkII, mounting them on the roof and the hood of the new 2014 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, driving the back straight of a racetrack at speeds in excess of 145 mph.

AstonRig_5x8Glucker, co-founder and Executive Editor of, the sight for dedicated car lovers, discovered MSE’s Master Mount System about six months ago. “I’d upgraded my camera equipment and was looking for something that would prove to be overkill for the Canon, because I didn’t want it coming off the hood, trunk, or roof of a car as I blasted down the road,” he says. “The Master Mount did the trick. And more.

“I’ve affixed it to a wide range of vehicles,” he explains. “Everything from a Volkswagen Touareg TDI and Subaru Forester up to a Lamborghini Gallardo Squadre Corse and an Aston Martin Vanquish Volante. Those were fairly simple tests for the mount, however, and I needed to see if it was really up to a challenge.”

Shooting the V12 Vantage S did the trick. When Glucker powered down from his 145 mph run, the Canon 5 was still sitting pretty and had captured great shots. “After that, I have supreme confidence that this mount is up for any challenge I can throw at it,” he concludes.

The Master Mount system by Matthews has proven itself throughout the world as a reliable, convenient and safe camera mounting device. The large 10″ vacuum cup ensures sturdy and secure contact and the BH 30 Ball Head allows for precise positioning of camera packages up to 40 lbs. (18Kg). Triangulation of the Master Mount assures a robust camera mount with little or no unwanted camera shake or vibration. The ease of mounting saves time and with the addition of the MAGIC RISER an endless variety of POVs are possible.
