  1. What these systems can't do is move around. They can't take shots from the back yard or anywhere else the car can't go. Get you self a system that can take photos from anywhere you can stand.. anywhere. And for a lot less $$$

  2. Ofcourse Mike is right. And I believe you have to be in Holland to buy the perfect Photomast. And for a lot less $$$ 🙂
