Just remember H.E.
Size does not matter. :lol:
Stability.
I have used a rolled up pair of socks put on my window and it worked very well. Or a piece of pool noodle.

HE, the pool noodle like michel mentioned works great and is lite and quick to use. A proper bean bag however will provide much more stabilisation but then again it does depend on the camera or camera/lens combo you have?

one that fits on either side of the window is best if its a single bag the window can just displace all the rice/beans and give you no support. Bigger is better though and always switch your car off otherwise those pesky vibrations just travel all the way up.

H.E they are those foam noodles that you can use in the pool to float on, can be found at lots of places in the pool section :thumbs_up:
