Our take on the Cinetics miniSquid™

by Woody Sherman
The miniSquid suction cups give you a lot of mounting options (camera, ballhead and Gorillapod tripod not included)

Capture the chase

Cinetics' own literature for these tenacious suction cups says, "capture stunning, Hollywood-style shots [like] high-speed chase or automobile cruising scenes." We'd recommend starting with the cruising and working your way up to high-speed chases, but it's good to know the miniSquid is up to the task. The miniSquid includes a trio of suction cups that combine with either a Gorillapod SLR-Zoom flexible tripod or a Cinetics SkatePlate to form a reliable mounting point for a tripod head and camera. The innovative triple suction cup design helps create a firm, solid seal on smooth, non-porous surfaces like car bodies and window glass. It'll be perfect for that first vehicle-mount shot you have in mind.

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 miniSquid is a set of three adjustable suction cups that is designed to be used with the SkatePlate or the GorillaPod Focus tripod. Each miniSquid attaches to the SkatePlate via Cinetics Connect. The rounded ends of the GorillaPod Focus' legs fit into the mounting cups on each miniSquid, and can be tightened down for a secure fit. The 2-1/2" diameter suction cups let you attach the tripod/camera mount to most any non-porous flat surface. When not in use, the miniSquid suction cups can be stored in the handy storage pouch.
