The Filmtools Magic Car Mount is an easy-to-use system desgined to support cameras weighing up to 20 pounds (9.07 kg). The system is comprised of three 6″ vacuum cups modified Manfrotto Magic Arms, a cheese plate and mini-ball leveler. The Magic Mount is an extremely flexible system that can be set-up in a wide-variety of configurations from hoods, doors, and fenders, to windshields and just about any other solid, non-porous surface.
Each Suction Cup has a spring-balanced pump that ensures a consistent vacuum level and a red-line indicator to warn if there is any drop in holding power. Just a few strokes of the plunger removes air from between the vacuum pad and the mounting surface. As long as the mount’s hold is secure, the plunger remains partially depressed inside the pump with red line hidden. If the red line appears, another stroke, or two will restore full holding power. A firm push, or pull on the rubber tab at the edge of the pad releases the mount when shooting is complete.
