NAB 2016: The Versatile & Magnetically Powered Cloud Mount From RigWheels

There’s no shortage of car mount systems to help you attach your camera to a moving vehicle. However, quantity does not equal quality. That’s why we were excited to see RigWheels’ Cloud Mount Camera Vibration Isolator System, a magnetically based and versatile car mount system.

Building on RigWheels’ RigMount XL mounting platform, the Cloud Mount adds a vibration isolator to allow your handheld gimbal to work more effectively and with less strain on its motors and bearings. In the same way that Handheld Gimbal Stabilizers have drastically reduced the time required to achieve smooth dynamic camera movement, the Cloud Mount tremendously reduces the amount of time necessary and the complexity involved with mounting a vibration isolator system to a vehicle.

This is a all-in-one solution and usually requires no additional grip and rigging hardware. Other vibration isolator systems rely extensively on  third party rigging and hardware which drastically increases the cost of a working system (more than $500.00 for typical four point rigging). The Cloud Mount (when purchased complete with case) can be deployed to its standard configuration and ready for your gimbal in under one minute. With a small reconfiguration you can change to a ‘hostess tray” or “underslung” position.

As with many of RigWheels’ products, the Cloud Mount system can vary in price depending on which pieces you need or already have. At the most, the Cloud Mount System will cost $1,799.
