How to Break an HD Camera Setting with a LP560-4 Gallardo – CRASH BABY

Hi folks, Akihabara News is pretty quiet during the week-end, but for once I’d like to share a funny video David and myself shot a couple of weeks ago for our luxury car website,

It wasn’t the first time for us to mount an HD camera on a car, and it wasn’t the first time shooting flat-out on a Lamborghini. This new and improved Gallardo, the LP560-4 in Corsa Mode (Race Mode) was changing gears way more violently than a regular Gallardo… and as you’ll see the camera setting (mount) didn’t appreciate 3rd gear…. See below:

A few things… I should have listened to David (our talented cameraman) who advised me to go soft for the first shot, and also thank my very own Guardian Angel (somewhere in the clouds) since neither the car nor the camera was damaged.

For those who curious about our set up, here you are:

1 HVX-200 P2 mounted on the car body
1 HDC-SD3 mounted behind the rear spoiler
1 AG-HPX170 P2 in the car to shoot at the driver (me)

We’d also like to thank Panasonic Japan for lending us a AG-HPX170 P2 for this test drive.

    I think you mean camera mounting; cameras, no matter how expensive, are not “set” like jewels.

    I was confused as to how a car could break a camera setting. A camera mount, on the other hand, is easy to understand.

    nice car. i love how the engine sounds.

    you need reinforced mounting, since it will sustain heavy wind force against it.

    try putting the cam inside the car maybe?
