If you’ve been a part of the automotive magazine business, even for a short period of time, you’d be well aware of how much effort goes into capturing all those nice pictures, which grab the eyeballs of readers. At autoX, that’s part of my job, and the tricky part about taking pictures of moving cars are our broken roads. You see, even with the latest technology advancements, trying to photograph a fast-moving vehicle while sitting still as the roads throw your vehicle around is quite a trick. Not to mention that you need a lot of space for the photography equipment to be stored.
The Ertiga, however, is perfectly suited for the job, as it ticks all the right boxes as a camera car. I find it dead easy to fit loads of equipment in the boot of the Ertiga – it can literally swallow all our camera gear for still photography and videography simultaneously. And, with its balanced suspension setup, it’s a pretty still platform for photographing even when it’s moving. Lastly, since the interior is so spacious, it allows me to contort my body into all kinds of weird position to get the perfect shot that I’m always looking for. And that’s another feather in the Ertiga’s cap – it’s a rather capable camera car.
