The Original Australian Cinesaddle Camera Mount supports ENG-sized cameras on a soft adaptable water-resistant canvas saddle. You can think of the Cinesaddle as a pillow to rest your camera on while operating it when not mounted on a tripod.
The Cinesaddle is shaped to cradle your camera & works as a mounting platform that conforms to oddly shaped terrain, although you can use it on flat surfaces as well. The Cinesaddle is not a stabilizer; however, it will absorb vibrations, making it well suited for moving platforms such as cars.
The Cinesaddle features a semi-detachable shoulder strap, with a quick release buckle on one end. Three open pockets allow you to retrieve small items. Included with the Cinesaddle is a mounting kit that can be used to secure your camera to a support or moving object.
Although primarily designed to provide you with a way to operate a camera on the ground when not mounted on a tripod or other support, the Cinesaddle can conform to oddly-shaped platforms such as a car hood.
The included mounting kit contains mounting hardware & straps so you can secure your camera & Cinesaddle to moving vehicles such as cars, boats, & bikes. The stirrups & anchors are designed to work with your car hood or the inside of a car door.
The semi-detachable shoulder strap can be used to hang the Cinesaddle from or secure it to your body (like a shoulder pad). The quick release buckle allows you to disconnect the strap from the Cinesaddle on one end, useful in case the Cinesaddle gets snagged or caught & releasing the shoulder strap is the fastest way to extricate you or your gear from the situation.
