The Shape Mountain 5100 Camera Support is an ideal solution for shooting in tight situations with a minimum of gear. The system has 3 components; the vacuum cup, an articulating arm, and a Manfrotto 143BKT camera bracket. Together the three components form the Mountain 5100, which allows you to secure a small camera to nearly any flat surface and the articulating arm allows you to secure it in almost any position.
The suction cup supports up to 7.5 pounds, and is actuated by a built-in thumb actuated pump. The pump features a red indicator line and as you pump, the suction increases. When the red indicator line disappears it indicates the pump is securely attached.
