We'd like to introduce our new Cineik IR13-SR Mid Grip Handle. The mid grip handle adds more flexibility and the extension to shot low end shots with your IR13-SR rig (counterweight is recommend). The IR13-SR mid grip handle is made of 6061-T6 black anodized aluminum and mounted with stainless steel hardware. The handle is very solid, comfortable and easy to assemble/disassemble. Something so simple adds so much is how a beta tester put it.
Below you'll see a professional company that has lost its steam and has resorted to stealing others designs for self gain. One major thing ol Shapee didn't figure out is the designs height. Being so short & stubby it seems this company tried to save money on machining time and material. The product not being tall enough will smash your fingers into the camera every time. Guess they wouldn't know that since the R&D wasn't spent designing it vs shopping on the internet for ideas to make money. Gotta love retail, people will do anything for $$$. I'm glad we've inspired others enough to use our designs as ATMs.
Cineik IR13 - 13
Cineik IR13 - SR solid metal hand grips
Cineik IR13 - 1 (great for a lightweight run & gun setup)
A camera has a short life expectancy this day and age. We continually upgrade or buy new gear making the jump more expensive from setup to setup. Keeping that in mind when designing this system, you'll have the advantage of upgrading the system anytime at a very affordable price. If the project is funded, you can expect many more accessories & upgrades.
Introducing the Cineik IR13 rail support systems & IR13 - SR shoulder rig. The IR13 is the first interchangeable multi axis adjustment system. The system can be adjusted in X, X+, Y, Y+ & Z axis, making it very easy to fine tune. The system can be assembled or disassembled in minutes to custom fit the camera operator needs. Our IR13 standard 15mm signature red threaded rails allows a wide variety of accessories to be attached.
Our IR13 - SR stage 1 shoulder rig can be configured in many ways and also features our all metal knurled single arm hand grips. The hand grips can be mounted upright / upside down or as a single grip system with a max recommended load of 13lbs - 15lbs. The shoulder plate can be offset and the rail pushed forward to fit an eye loupe very quickly.
The system can be purchased in a few different assemblies, starting from our simple base line IR13 - 1 system (run and gun) all the way up to our IR13 - 3 studio complete and the IR13 - SR stage 1 shoulder rig. The IR13 & IR13 - SR system is lightweight, solid, tripod mountable, and very affordable. Whether you're a Cinematographer/Videographer or Photographer the Cineik IR13 railing systems & shoulder rig will support your work flow. Note all pieces will be sold individually at a later time for an additional cost so nobody is left out if you're wanting to upgrade at a later time.
Testing the water here on Kickstarter with our latest project the Cineik hot shoe handle and with the amazing support we have received on this product, we've decided to offer our new railing & shoulder support system to you first! We've been designing this system for over a year and would like to offer it at a more affordable cost than our projected introductory price. If we have enough support from backers here we can buy our supplies in bulk and offer the Cineik IR13 rail support system starting at $99 & up and the IR13 - SR at $359. All pledges include US domestic flat rate shipping, international backers please see our pricing chart. The follow focus/camera's are not included.
What is the Cineik IR13 ?
What does it do ?
The Cineik IR13 (interchangeable rail support system) allows the camera operator to add more accessories that require the space (accessories like a follow focus, external monitor, shoulder plate, railing grips, teleprompter, articulating arm, external mics, matte box and much more). The IR13 will allow the camera operator to evenly & quickly adjust the systems weight for a "balanced" setup.
A balanced setup will not only add support & accessories to your camera, but aid in leveling a shot & most important preventing offset weight that could lead to injury. The Cineik IR13 series will fit any camera that supports a 1/4-20" thread. All IR13 series systems are interchangeable and tripod mountable. With our signature red threaded rails, you can quickly change the length to attach other accessories. The IR13 can be transformed from a run & gun style setup to a pro setup in just a few twists and turns.
The CINEIK IR13 system is CNC machined from a high strength 6061-T6 aluminum and machined to tolerance. The product is tumbled for 2 - 3 days for the best surface quality possible. The Cineik IR13 series systems will be presented in a black and red (threaded rails) anodized finish (type II class 1 mil spec)..
Product Expectations - All products are machined within +/- .0005" - .001" tolerance and fully inspected before shipment. Our products with threaded holes will have a tighter fit than normal tapped products. We use form taps that "form" the metal vs cutting taps that leave a weaker wall structure, which are more prone to stripping, cracking, etc... Products with an anodized finish are within .0004" - .001" thick coating, UV protected and sealed with a nickel acetate. All anodized products meet mil spec type II class 1 anodizing.
