Just got a call where the client wants to do a straight approach from a vehicle to a building and tilt up. Graphics will be superimposed over this video. Client asked if Steadicam was a good choice and I said that a car mount would be better because there's no risk of camera roll and controlling the tilt will be easier and the end result more solid for post.

Client sent me this link for a car they're thinking of using: http://www.cameracar...ed.com/CCU2.png

Would like to know your opinion - Do you agree with me? Vehicle looks solid to me - how about you? Adding some sort of dampening head (Scorpion head?) would be even better?

Thanks for any feedback.
