Filmtools Car Mount & Technicolor Cinestyle BTS On Set.

Jared Abrams / Quick Takes

Here is a little Quick Take on set with the Filmtools three point suction cup car mount system. This really is one of the best systems for smaller cameras like DSLR’s. It’s only around $400 for the kit. A good tip when using suction cups on cars: use a little plastic wrap to prevent any marks from the suction cups. We had a rental, so we did not really care. We also were trying out the new Technicolor Cinestyle Picture Style that night. As you can see in the video the Cinestyle gives you more latitude than any of the other available picture styles for the Canon 5D Mark II. It was quite difficult to keep everything in focus with the Technicolor Cinestyle. The sharpness is turned way down as well as everything else. It is an Ultra Flat picture style. I think it is worth having on your camera as a great option for color correction in post.

    Nice! I just got the triangulation kit, can’t wait to try it out. How did you find the stability on the single mount?
