Rigwheels’ upcoming Cloud Mount camera stabilizing rig builds on their popular RigMount XL, adding a vibration isolator that “tremendously reduces the amount of time necessary and the complexity involved with mounting a vibration isolator system to a vehicle.”
The Cloud Mount is an all-in-one solution that you can set up with your gimbal in less than a minute, with their RigMount magnets that “provide up to 400lb of pulling force”. This can vary depending on the package, as the DSLR Package comes with four magnets (providing 800 pounds of pulling force), while the mid-size includes 12 magnets (600 pounds of force) and the pro package includes 16 magnets (for 800 pounds of force). All packages also include 8 suction cups for certain situations, with vacuum suction cups available separately.
Perhaps the biggest draw to RigWheels’ Cloud Mount (as well as their other products) is its versatility. The Cloud Mount has been designed to work with any “gimbal/camera combination using standard cable ‘wire rope'”. It’s also designed with customization in mind, with a large amount of fine tuning possible. This is taken even further due to the core components being the same as RigWheels other products. This means current owners of RigWheels gear will be able to configure the Cloud Mount components into other forms, such as the RigMount X, RigMount XL and RigMount Suction Mount configurations and even their RailDolly Kit and RigSkate with a $300 upgrade.
The RigWheels Cloud Mount will begin shipping April 6th. Price will vary greatly depending on the individual pieces or package you choose, but is listed on their site as being from $25 to $1,799. For those interested in seeing the Cloud Mount up close and personal, be sure to visit RigWheels at NAB 2016 in Central Hall, booth C12142.
