Filmtools has packaged our own products, 5/8" standard grip hardware and 6" Vacuum Cups to create the first professional camera car mount kits of their kind.
The kit starts out with our ball-leveling head that comes with a 3/8" and 1/4" camera mounting plate, capable of supporting over 50 pounds.
With our mounting system, your custom camera mount installations are limited only by your imagination. Each 6" cup, when mounted on a horizontal surface, can hold seventy vertical pounds. When combining them in triangular arrangements, the load factor is staggering 210 pounds. For safety's sake when mounting the suction cups on a vertical surface we under rate a standard 3-cup mount load to 50 pounds total. The camera mount kit is designed for prosumer lightweight video cameras and camcorders and for professional videographers and 16mm cinematographers as well. Owners have found a new freedom since they don't have to hire grips and their heavy-duty equipment just to rig a camera on an automobile. An average mount takes less than ten minutes to set up, saving valuable production time.
The kit consists of:
- Three Filmtools 6" Cups w/ 5/8" Baby Spuds
- One 7.5" x 10" x 3/8" Cheese Plate
- Ball-leveler (Camera Platform) w/ three 5/8" diameter mounting spuds
- Three 5/8" Stainless Rods, 12"
- Three 5/8" Stainless Rods, 24"
- Six Matthews 2.5" Grip Heads
- One Safety Strap
NEW. Pelican Case included.
Remember: Always utilize a safety strap when using suction cups.
The mount weighs 31 lb: Shipping Weight, including the Pelican Case is 65 pounds total.
