CINECTA MX-1

The CINECTA MX-1 camera stabilizing system was specifically developed for DSLR cameras. It can be used for any camera as long as it weighs less than 2 kilograms.

Of course, not only DSLRs, but all cameras that are under the weight limit, such as mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras (MILC) and handycams can also be used with our system; these cameras make professional full HD recording affordable to everyone. The lightweight, compact cameras give us high degree of freedom, and a wide range of usability, clearly camera evolution is heading towards small, light and very smart devices. It is easy to see what it means to the cameraman to carry a small and light camera instead of a large and heavy one for long hours. With smaller cameras you can enjoy such freedom that opens up new dimensions, previously difficult or impossible tasks can be easily achieved. Steadicam operators carry the weight of the full equipment on their bodies, so they are especially open to innovation; they need smaller and lighter tools. Our team at Cinecta assessed these specific needs and designed the CINECTA MX-1 camera stabilizing system, which is a full-featured steadicam. With the help of our system you can achieve professional steadicam shots as seen in the movies, at low cost.

The system consists of three main parts:

  • CINECTA MX-1 sled gives vertical stabilization to your camera
  • CINECTA MX-1 stabilizing arm filters out the vibrations from the cameraman’s movement
  • CINECTA MX-1 supportive vest attaches the system to the cameraman's body; it evenly distributes the weight of the rig and the camera on the user's upper body.
