Often working as a one man band, there are many aspects that require my attention. I am always looking for ways to simplify tasks, and focus on what matters. This item is a lightweight timesaver, that gives me an edge setting up and tearing down modular DSLR / DV rigs.

I especially like using these in conjuction with articulating arms made by 16x9 Inc. Before owning this quick release, I had to screw the arm onto my rig, then carefully screw the accessory onto the arm. I was always concerned that I would crossthread an accessory's screw receiver, or drop an expensive item. Now I just screw the arm into the accessory, then slide and lock the other end of the arm right onto my rig. On a side note, I find the 5" arms work best with displays, and the longer arms are best for mounting lights.

This item comes with various screws, washers, and adapters to make it work in every situation I've ever needed.

This is my new standard for mounting accessories, and I will be buying more of these quick release mounts in future. They are a bit pricey, but what isn't in this industry. Plus, your clients will be impressed at how effortlessly you can modify your rig, and get to the real work.

$ for a bracket this size makes me want to cry - especially after shelling out $4k for an Odyssey 7Q and a couple batteries, firmwares, etc...It's small, doesn't weigh down the camera rig linking the 7Q to my FS700, and locks together securely. Still, the screw going into the back of the 7Q on one side of the thing doesn't have any kind of lock mechanism, and sometimes the monitor will swing itself counter-clockwise into a loosened position. It makes my heart drop a little bit each time.Still, it appears to be the best option there is for a quick mount, which is what we need.

This works great, just wish it didn't cost so much. It will outlast the camera and monitors I use it with.

great quick release

Comments about 16x9 Inc. Cine Lock Quick Release Mounting Device:

These are small and flat so they work well for some devices which have storage cases without much space. I use these to mount an H6 and a few other small items. The only issue is that it needs to be very tightly screwed in and is sometimes difficult to slide together.

Meh.

By Jake

Comments about 16x9 Inc. Cine Lock Quick Release Mounting Device:

Honestly, for the price, this product doesn't hold up. No matter how tightly you screw the clip into your camera, it spins and doesn't lock tight. For the price I paid for this, it should at least lock tight and not spin. Don't even think about putting a nova arm on this with a monitor on the end. Even a simple grip pad on the bottom would work better than it does now.

      Comments about 16x9 Inc. Cine Lock Quick Release Mounting Device:

      I use one to attach a medium Noga Cine arm to the handle of my Canon C100 MkII. Light weight, well crafted and most importantly, does precisely what it's made to do. Attach and detach with ease. Holds tight.

      Expensive? Maybe, but think about how much you paid for the two items you're going to attach and you decide.

      As for me, I'll be ordering a couple more.

        This little product is one of my favorites. Now that we all use external monitors on our cameras, which I never use to used in my beta cam days, being able to take a monitor on and off the camera, quickly, without unscrewing the monitor is a blessing! I use this on my Small HD DP7 pro, mounted to an extension arm, and it is perfect. Great product, must have in todays film world!

        Didn't realize how much I needed these

        By David S

        from Hamilton

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about 16x9 Inc. Cine Lock Quick Release Mounting Device:

        These are amazing, well built, and designed pretty well.

        I have them mounted to my steadicam and to my shoulder rig so that I can easily use my monitor on both without much effort.

        My only gripe is that the one bottowm piece only has one screw hole, so it has a tendency to come loose if I twist the monitor much. I'm generally pretty careful to keep it tight though so it's not a big problem.

        these things are expensive for what they are (or so I thought when I was a poor college student wondering why anyone would ever buy these) but they're worth the investment and they should last a very very long time and be very useful across all your equiptment.

            Comments about 16x9 Inc. Cine Lock Quick Release Mounting Device:

            I normally don't write reviews, but I almost returned this item thiking I couldn't mount it tight enough but if you buy it as a kit it comes with a 1/4 stud (set screw) that can be used instead of trying to tighten using the standard screw. It is very simple, but easy for some to mount wrong. This is a great way of quickly changing out recorders / monitors / led lights to a single hotshoe or base. The reviews which say it only mounts loose or to flip it upside down to get it to mount correctly are WRONG. It just takes a little common sense to use the correct approach on the base and the quick release.

                It would be nice to have some surface grip if the piece of equipment you are attaching this to is not able to utilize the locating pin. Without the pin, you have to crank down the pieces to minimize spinning and you may end up with an orientation that is not favorable (e.g. a small monitor where you would want the Cine Lock to be mounted parallel to the length of the monitor).

                    These 16x9 cine locks give me a foolproof way to securely attach a noga/magic arm to my camera. If I put a monitor on the end of it, I can quickly remove it when putting it away or I can add multiple locks on the camera so I can move it to a better position for shooting. They are solid and strong. Great gear.
