CineSquid tripod has legs, and knows how to use them

The CineSquid tripod system sucks, but not in a bad way. See how this accessory lets you capture unique angles with your camera.


Accessory maker Cinetics (creator of CineSkates) has launched its latest tripod system, the CineSquid.

Using the system, moviemakers can secure their cameras (there is a 5-pound weight limit) onto contoured, multilevel surfaces. Users can also maneuver the angle of the camera even when the suction cups have been mounted on.

Unlike conventional tripods, the CineSquid lets users mount their cameras on the underbelly of a helicopter, the bumper of a car, or the rear of any moving vehicle with a smooth surface. This means you'll be able to access those hard-to-reach angles and record videos with more unique perspectives.


The CineSquid tripod system comprises a GorillaPod Focus tripod, a BallHead Xcamera mount, and a carrying case. Before you take out that credit card, do note that the CineSquid costs $235 and is currently only available for preorder from the company's Web site. The product is expected to ship on April 30.
