Cinetics introduces CineVise camera mount with vise grips


Video accessories maker Cinetics has announced the CineVise camera mount. Similar to its Cine System,it is built around Joby’s popular Gorillapod Focus flexible tripod. The CineVise includes clamps around its feet, allowing you to firmly mount a DSLR or small video camera to any surface. It can be purchased from the Cinetics store as a complete system, including the GorillaPod Focus and Ballhead X for $295. You can also purchase just the CineVise grips for $165.

Last week, we posted a review of the company’s Cine System which is a similar low-cost kit, but on wheels instead of clamps, enabling videographers to achieve smooth panning and zoom shots as well as window and vehicle mounted footage.

CineVise System is a set of 3 grips combined with the GorillaPod Focus tripod and Ballhead X as budget alternative to pro-style rigs.




Just use the 5 axis IBIS for a hovercam jet pack hotshoe attachment.


Seems like rather a lot for what it is, but it does look handy. Maybe I’ll just attach, Velcro loops to the foot of a spare Gorillapod. That should be useful, too, though tougher o get a rigid mount than this. I do love Gorillapods.

How many grips do we need?
How many kind of grips do we need to carry?


How many cameras do we need?
How many lenses do we need to carry?
How many bags do we need?
How many…?

Well, no one is forcing you to buy all (or any) of those grips. They’re just offering options.


Vise grips is a good idea for many situations, well seen.

There used to be small screw attachment devices that were very handy. You could screw it into a tree and then attach the camera very securely almost anywhere in the forest without a tripod. I think they disappeared because of the perceived damage to ‘nature’. Would be nice to have three small screws for this system as well. Seems like a great system idea.
