Video / photography from a car?

Are there any consumer gadgets out there to help me take pictures or shoot a bit of video from a moving car?

I've become used to screeching to a halt to grab a picture, but this isn't always possible. And there are times when I'd like to take some video while actually moving through some nice scenery. Like many people I suspect, I've tried taking some sneaky video with a camera in one hand and the steering wheel in the other, but this is not safe -- for me or other drivers -- and and anyway, it's not a great way of capturing what you want.

Any tips or pointers towards useful equipment please? Thanks in advance.

There are a number of dashboard camera mounts. A beanbag mount should take some of the vibration out.
