The Scalca Sprut – All Magnetic Car Camera Mount for Movi & Ronin Gimbals
A company called Scalca released a magnetic car gimbal mounting product called the Sprut. From what I can tell Scalca is a Russian company and I can’t find out anything else about them so quality is an unknown at this point until someone can get one and give it a test.
Maybe don’t order it and toss a $30K camera setup until you thoroughly bang it around to make sure the Russian magnets don’t fall out. See the demo:
The idea is simple, pull the Sprut out of it’s carry case, unfold it, and stick it on the car to let the magnets do their thing. So you’ll need an all metal panel to attach to, which depending on what you’re driving may be an issue since some cars have aluminum hoods and trunk lids to lower weight but that’s typically on performance oriented cars.
The dampening is super simple – basically wire cabling that tried to stop harsh vibrations. The weight limit is 30kg or 66lbs (camera + support + gimbal) and the 8 magnet kit goes for $2000.
There is also a 4 magnet kit for $1500 but that guy only supports 10kg.
