Our friends at Cinetics launched the next product in their line of awesome video capturing accessories—the CineSquid Suction Cup Camera Mount System.
The CineSquid is a super strong, versatile suction cup camera mount system, which allows filmmakers to capture previously unthinkable shots by attaching their camera to smooth surfaces, from any angle. Cinetics has already built a huge following of filmmaker enthusiasts with the launch of CineSkates, an innovative camera tripod dolly that made great use of our GorillaPod Focus.
The CineSquid system combines powerful suction cup technology with the flexible GorillaPod Focus Tripod and BallHead X to create a portable and modular system that filmmakers can take anywhere. Different from other suction cup mounts on the market, the flexible tripod attaches to contoured, multi-level surfaces, and users can even manipulate the camera frame once the suction cups are mounted. The triple suction cup design ensures CineSquid will not lose its grip.
Not unlike us here at JOBY, Cinetics founder Justin Jensen is “encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive support from our community of users to create a simple, interchangeable system that replaces their bulky gear.”
In case you’re curious, here are a few examples of what CineSquid can stand up to …
* High-speed chase or automobile cruising scenes
* Aerial views from the belly of an airplane up to 200mph
* Scenic or landscape shots from a boat, train or any moving vehicle
* Time-lapse video with a rock-solid connection to any smooth surface
To celebrate the launch of CineSquid, Cinetics is hosting the CineSkates Showdown Video Contest. The winning videos will be featured in future Cinetics videos, and the winners will each receive the new CineSquid component along with a GoPro® HD HERO2 Camera.
Congratulations to our friends at Cinetics on another fabulous product!
