MEET OUR C MOUNT MAGNET MOUNTS
Out go the suction cups, in come the magnets! We’ve received a lot of questions recently on what our favorite rigging methods are. Currently, the C Mount Magnet mount and rounded magnet ball-head combo is at the top of our list.
The combination comes with a ¼-20 inch thread, and ball head. You can also add a thread adapter for an arm or a ball head. The pull force is estimated at around 75 lbs. It works for all cameras from POV cameras to mid-sized DSLRs or cinema cameras if you use these magnets in tandem.
These mounts can stick to any magnetic surface. With the rubberized coatings on the magnets, it is gentle on the surfaces that it comes in contact with. Additionally, if you do not have a magnetic surface and need to mount on any windows, the magnets can be wedged between the glass and will not lose pull force.
However, if you do not have a magnetic surface or want to avoid car exterior clutter and wiper blades, that’s where the C Mount magnet mounts come in handy! Use the included adhesive, to mount to windshield interiors, non-metal car accessories, and more.
HOW TO USE THEM
Due to the usual time constraints during our shoots or the limited crew that we have allowed on sets, we reach for these nimble magnets a lot! It is a simple grab-and-go device. Find where you want to stick it and you are good to go on any surface!
Your mounted equipment can be articulated any way that you would like once it is stuck on. These C Mount magnet mounts will not budge, even at fast speeds on highways. They are great for rigging on cars to get tire shots, inserts, interiors, and exteriors. In addition, the C Mount magnet mounts can mount any transmitters or engineering equipment you may need.
They are lightweight, and compact so they really can stick to almost any surface and allow you to get the shots that you need.
WHY USE THESE?
Suction cups usually require a lot of pumping and babysitting. It gets tiring on rigs that will have to endure for a long time or experience varying weather conditions. We’ve left these magnets on for months at a time and shipped them nationwide for different specialty rigs with success.
Moreover, these magnets are an incredibly affordable way to mount your cameras. One magnet provides several angles with quick setups. Our kits are super affordable to rent, and are a great value for purchase.
In short, if you want a small crew, with a short setup time and great results, give us a call about renting or buying one of our custom C Mount Magnet mounts!Check out shows where our rigs have been used:
