A while ago I contributed to the CineSkates Kickstarter campaign, and have been thoroughly pleased with what Justin Jensen delivered. The low profile dolly system works really well, and the number of angles that can be captured thanks to the GorillaPod legs is a brilliant move.
Now Cinetics have announced a brand new product – CineSquid that allows you to mount your DSLR or small vidcam to a moving vehicle.
This is a ready-to-go CineSquid™ system for use with any camera with a standard tripod mount that weighs less than 5 pounds. It includes CineSquid™, a case, a GorillaPod Focus tripod, and BallHead Xcamera mount. The first 100 CineSquid orders will receive early shipping in March. The next wave of orders will begin shipping in late April in the order that they are received.
Expanding on the unique Cinetics Connect platform, developed to make CineSkates possible, the new 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.
It’s a little bit pricey, but compared to a similar system offered by StickyPod, this might be a perfect item to pick up.
