Our take on the Cinetics Smart Mount by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
This tripod mount adapts most smartphones up to 1/2-inch thick to a standard 1/4"-20 tripod thread. It's made of black anodized aluminum and has soft pads that protect the phone (or camera of equivalent size) while holding it securely. It's a perfect addition to your Cinetics dolly system.
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.
