    Description

    Convert your Freedom360 rig from the ‘cube on the corner’ configuration to a more traditional ’4-around, 1-up’ configuration. Great for situations where shooting without a ‘nadir hole’ is not an issue, and a vertical field of view of 135 deg (instead of 180 deg) is sufficient, or the rig is placed extremely close to the ground (or any other surface). Also very useful for filming for full dome movies.

    To use it, remove one of the cameras from any of the six slots, insert the 5X Adaptor into the slot (it has a very tight fit), and secure it with the camera brace and 2 screws. The Freedom360 mount now fits perfectly and very securely onto any tripod with 3/8 connector.

    The 5X adaptor is made out of the same super strong Polyamide (Nylon) as the Freedom360 mount.

    Items included:

    • 5X Adaptor with 3/8-16 female (standard tripod) connector

    Cameras and Freedom360 mount are not included.

    Description

    This item is discontinued and will be replaced by an upgraded version shortly.

     

    Highly versatile tool to hold and mount the Freedom360. Simply attach the Freedom360 to the “thin end” of the pole and start shooting in any direction. Or attach the monpod to a regular tripod to gain an elevated view, or use a small tabletop tripod as foot, or attach a counter weight for a simplified steadycam setup, or attach the pole with a super clamp to a overhead structure, or extend the monopod with another pole, or or or…

    The basic principle behind the Freedom360 is the “vanishing” support, such as this monopod, which can me masked out before blending the final panorama, leaving either just a tiny smudged circle, or nothing at all in the final video.

    This monopod is specifically modified for the Freedom360 rig, with female connectors on both ends, including a 1/4 – 3/8 stud.

    Specs:

    • ca 160cm (full length, 140-150cm recommended)
    • ca 54cm collapsed
    • 4 segments
    • twist-lock
    • ca 500gr weight

    Rigging:

    Use common sense: (CF) poles are build for longitudinal forces, holding them vertically limits the max load capacity. Use with caution. Never extend a segment all the way to the endstop. Always leave 5-10cm “in the tube” for each segment, the more the better. Although the Freedom360 is very light (about 525gr), additional forces can still break the carbon fiber. Use good safety practices, including safety cables, especially if you rig the rig above crowds. Inspect your monopod, and discard it if you think the CF integrity has become compromised.

    Legal disclaimer: we are in no way responsible for unsafe practices when using the monopod, or should the monopod become damaged or break for whatever reason. Use at your own risk.

    Super clamp, mini tripod or counter weights sold separately.

Product Description

New and updated tri-base suction cup mount: this new model has a larger ball head and easier handling, allowing for more holding force.

Updated:

The tri-base suction cup is a mounting option to smooth surfaces, such as windows, cars and similar. The triple suction cups offer a level of redundancy over single cup mounts, allowing less of a chance of ‘accidental’ peel-offs. The ball head is removable and you can connect other equipment straight to the base plate via 3/8 tapped holes. 2 (two) tri-base suction cups with super clamps will hold a mono pod securely in place (2-point mount). Use common sense when using suction cups in general, and always use safety cables when the situation warrants it.

 Item included:

  • Tri-base suction cup
  • 6.35mm thick black-anodized  aluminium base
  • 38mm Delrin ball head with 3/8-16 connector
  • Weight: 515gr
  • Footprint: 23cm
  • Height: 10cm
  • 7.9mm (5/16in) Allen tool included

F360, cameras, tripod, monopod, super clamp etc not included.

Installation Instructions

  1. Place the tri-base mount on a smooth and clean surface, suitable for suction mounts
  2. Press down hard on the base plate to ensure good contact between the 3 suction cups and the surface
  3. Lock all 3 suction cups
  4. Attach your equipment to the 3/8-16 bolt on the ball head. Tighten it against the black tri-wing knob
  5. Orient or level it where you need it
  6. Use your fingers to tighten all three 3/8 bolts around the white ball head
  7. Use the 5/16 Allen Key Tool to tighten one (1) of the 3/8 bolts by no more than half a turn. A quarter turn is usually enough. Over-turning will cause damage to the Delrin ball, and should not be necessary to get a good grip

Uninstall instruction

  1. Unlock all 3 suction cups
  2. Lift the lip on each suction cup to release it from the surface

Alternate use:

Remove the three 3/8 bolts to remove the ball head assembly completely. Use the 3/8 threaded holes to mount your equipment directly to the base plate.
