With our camera 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 cups on a vertical surface we derate a standard 3-cup-mount to 50 pounds total.
The 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 car mount takes less than ten minutes to set up, saving valuable production time.
