Cinesaddle Tiny Saddle - Basic Series

Cine Saddle

Recommended for cameras no larger than MiniDV in size. Cinesaddles are a unique camera support product that provides a stable base with fast and easy setup to replace a tripod or fluid head. You can also mount it to any static or moving object.
Key Highlights
  • Fits cameras no larger than a MiniDV
  • Wrist strap for relocating quickly
  • Extremely portable


The Tiny Saddle is a no frills model in the Basic Series of Cinesaddles. Tiny Saddles suit customers who do not require the functionality of the Professional Series models. They are smaller in size, have less padding, no pockets or pouches, and are manufactured with only a wrist strap instead of one over the shoulder. They also do not include a mounting kit.

The Cinesaddle is filled with high tech foam balls that push the sides of the bag tight up against the camera holding it rock steady. In similar fashion the bottom of the Cinesaddle molds itself to the shape of the object it is resting on preventing it from slipping. The foam balls also absorb vibration providing a very stable surface for the camera. The Cinesaddle is also extremely lightweight and simple to set up.

Cinesaddles allow you to be creative because it can be used in so many ways. Place the camera and Cinesaddle on any flat surface or on top of a tripod. You can even pan and tilt with the Cinesaddle. With the optional mounting kit you can strap the Cinesaddle to any moving object and create a dolly.

The Cinesaddle come in variety of models depending on your needs and the size of your camera. A mounting kit (CS-MOUNTING) is available as an optional extra since this model does not come standard with one.

It is also possible to use these saddles as a substitute for a fluid head and a quick release mount when the shooter has to move quickly. 

The Tiny Saddle is designed to provide a simple way to achieve rock steady results anywhere without the need to lug a tripod around.

NOTE: Not recommended for cameras larger than MiniDV size.

Static Use

As a basic camera mount the Cinesaddle is far more versatile than the tripod. It is lighter, smaller, offers greater stability and it will never pinch your fingers.

No fluid head is needed; the Cinesaddle grips the camera tightly, keeping it rock steady while you make any shot. Panning and tilting is as easy as with a fluid head, only the technique is different.

The Cinesaddle's small size lets you mount your camera in the most confined space. 

For an eye level shot, mount your camera onto any stable object such as a piece of furniture, a prop or your camera case. 

Dynamic Use

The most exciting possibilities occur when the Cinesaddle is used as a dynamic mount, such as during shots where the camera is mounted to a moving object. See the Cinesaddle in action to check out the various helpful videos the manufacturer has included on their website. The Cinesaddle can be attached to any moving vehicle or moving object using the optional Mounting Kit.

Point the Cinesaddle forward or sideways on a baby carriage/stroller, a bicycle, or a wheel chair to obtain a unique perspective on a temporary dolly.

If you mount the Cinesaddle onto a smooth surface, the Cinesaddle may be pulled or pushed across the surface without need for an external dolly. You may wish to do a sound test first, in case the sliding sound of the canvas on the smooth surface registers in your recording.
