Our take on the Cinetics CineVise™

by Woody Sherman
Cinetics CineVise mounts your camera to a rough, porous surfaces (camera, Gorillapod Focus, and ballhead not included).

Cinetics CineVise mounts your camera to rough, porous surfaces (camera, Gorillapod Focus, and ballhead not included).

Get the unexpected shot

So your shooting script calls for a shot of the city seen from high atop a crane on a skyscraper. Your camera budget probably doesn't include a lot of room for new cameras, so your mounting point outside the crane's cage had better hold tight to your investment. Be absolutely sure with the CineVise system. The CineVise includes three vise grips that combine with a Gorillapod Focus flexible tripod to form a rock-solid mounting point for a tripod head and camera. Once you tighten down the grips on solid, accessible portions of your surface, it'll give you the perfect angle, even when finding a stable, secure spot is tricky.

Why Cinetics?

Smooth moving shots are one of the primary building blocks of fine motion picture production. They put us into the scene on the screen, because they mirror how we experience the world. Our bodies act as a big shock-absorber for our eyes, plus our brain does internal image-stabilization along the way. So it's no wonder we like stable, even moving shots in our on-screen entertainment and no surprise that we can feel distracted by shaky handheld footage. A tripod often isn't enough for convincing movement, because it can only help for shots where your camera stays in one place. And moving the camera does more than make the experience seem real; it makes your camera a character, a participant, a narrator.

So consider what Cinetics gear can bring to the table for your next video project. Whether it's a simple home movie, a film school exercise, or a full-blown professional production, good camera mounting can make a world of difference in how your audience will experience what you've captured.

Features

Overview: The Cinetics CineVise is a set of three adjustable clamps that is designed to be used with the SkatePlate or the GorillaPod Focus tripod. Each CineVise attaches to the SkatePlate via Cinetics Connect. The rounded ends of the GorillaPod Focus' legs fit into the mounting cups on each CineVise, and can be tightened down for a secure fit. The clamps open up to 2-1/2", and have soft rubber pads for a non-slip grip. When not in use, the CineVise clamps can be stored in the handy storage pouch.
