Technical Details


Product Description

Product Description

CineSquid is a set of three suction cups that attache to the GorillaPod Focus Tripod to create a portable and modular suction cup camera mount system that filmmakers can take anywhere.

From the Manufacturer


According to Gizmodo, CineSquid sucks, in the best possible way! :) This set of three super-strong suction cups attach to the flexible GorillaPod Focus tripod which lets you grip a variety of surfaces for an extremely powerful hold. The GorillaPod bends to form to many levels of surface, something that is impossible with a flat suction cup mount. With CineSquid, you can be confident that your equipment is safe, even when getting fast chase scenes or airplane shots.

Rock Solid Suction Mount

Connect your iPhone or iPod with the included dock
The suckiest suction cups ever to attach to the GorillaPod!
You are free to attach your camera to multi-level surfaces such as car bodies, and with three heavy-duty suction cups holding down your camera, CineSquid will never lose its grip. You can use CineSquid for: 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 If it's a smooth, non-porous surface, CineSquid will stick to it.

Portability and Expandability

Free to move around
Connect your iPhone or iPod with the included dock

CineSquid easily conforms to any multi-level surface, something that flat suction mounts can't accomplish!

CineSquid is light and compact, letting you put it in your backpack and take it with you everywhere. CineSquid works specifically with the flexible GorillaPod Focus tripod and the Cinetics Connect platform, giving you more versatility and multiple tools all in one neat little package.

Modular Attachments

Maybe it's time for a chase scene, or a gorgeous shot of the scenery as you cruise down the river. Just pop off your CineSkates, and pop on your CineSquid suction cup mount. When you're done you can go right back to using it as a dolly within seconds when you reattach CineSkates. With the Cinetics Connect platform you can expand the uses of the already versatile GorillaPod Focus with other Cinetics attachments currently available, and many more in development.

Solid High-quality Parts

Hand built in Austin, Texas, all Cinetics products are made with the highest quality materials. The CineSquid suction cups are the most powerful version we could find on the market and with its triple grip can easily hold even when on an airplane going 200 mph. (Yes, we really tried this!)

If these were $40, they would be great. But given their ridiculously high price-tag, I expect them to be near flawless in what the report to do. They stick just fine, but whenever I tried to adjust my Gorillapod (which takes a good deal of force with the tension in a Focus), the legs would pop out of the cinesquid socket. Even when I tightened them about as tight as I possibly could (to the point that it was very difficult to loosen them..), the legs still popped out.

If you have the set-up ready to go, I wouldn't worry about it falling (given that you've properly set it up). But having your ability to adjust the gorillapod so limited is extremely frustrating.

Pro: -Once set up, pretty safe.

Cons: -Difficult to adjust
-Over-priced
-Transfers a lot of vibrations

In the end, I decided to return it. It would have been nice, but not for the pricetag.

Surprised how well this product works. I've got a dedicated car mount, but it is time consuming to rig and difficult to level. This system is easy to transport, fast to rig, and plenty secure with lightweight, low profile cameras. I use mine with Panasonic 4K cameras -- both a GH4 and a FZ1000. I remove the camera straps because of wind resistance. I've run these cameras mounted on the car hood for extended periods at highway speeds, including one day in freezing temperatures. The only precaution is I use a spray bottle and microfiber cloth to carefully clean the car before attaching the suction cups. This all made me very nervous at first, but the system has held secure and arrived safely every time. Very satisfied. Great performance at a very reasonable cost - muchnless than dedicated car mounts.

I LOVE this thing! Right away it opened up so much potential shooting options for me. Feels like I can put it anywhere AND TRUST it! I've tested it to at least 85MPH if not more. I used to use other suction cup mounts and I would constantly check them to make sure they held, NOT this thing! Once I'm 100% sure that it's secure before we start rolling, I focus on the action, NOT on if it's gonna fall off. It's also very solid. I was concerned about it wobbling. Gotta mount it right, but when you do it's GREAT!

I want to do a bigger review on my own personal show that I have where I do reviews, BUT, I don't want too many people knowing about my new secret weapon...well...wherever I shoot I get a LOT of attention. lol. People are just amazed at the product.

I've placed a 5D3 with 8-15mm L on several vehicles for hours of shooting, and I've had no problems so far! This is a 3.5lb setup, and I've had no worries about these things coming off. I wouldn't really go heavier, however.

Amazon: I can not answer my own question.

Answer from Cinetics
We designed CineSquid to work specifically with the GorillaPod Focus tripod. And it is the combination of the larger tripod and larger suction cup that enable it to hold more. And the strong connection between the two. A plastic ring is definitely something we can look into, but not in the plans right now.

All:
Has anybody found a plastic ring which could do the trick? The ring might need to have a gap, to allow the ring to become smaller when tightening the suction cups or to allow the ring to fit around the SLR-ZOOM leg to make it just big enough to mimic a Joby Focus leg. This gap could be accomplished with a saw.
