Besides its weird name, the brand new Scalca Sprut multipurpose modular magnetic car grip promises to deliver a wide variety of smooth, professional looking shots in conjunction with some of the most popular 3-axis gimbal stabilizers such as the DJI Ronin and Freefly Movi models when attached to a vehicle.
Due to its utterly modular design and powerful magnets, the system can handle a full-fledged gimbal along with a mid-sized camcorder on board safely even when driving at 125 mph. And the best part is that the installation shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes to set up.
In addition, you can use the special wire rope cable damper that helps you to avoid vibration on the camera during shooting when driving on a rough, uneven road surface. Due to the flexible elbow arm, you can easily mount your camera rig on the car door and get it as close as possible to the ground for some stunning low angle shots.
The system quickly folds into a small and compact package that is easy to transport and travel around. The maximum payload of Scalca Sprut is 30kg which is more than enough to handle a DJI Ronin gimbal along with a camera body and a few additional accessories on top.
Each magnet of the system provides 40kg of pull power, plus there is a replaceable silicon pad on every extension that protects the paint of your car. Due to the adjustable steel bearing, you can easily control the angle of each arm which gives some extra flexibility and allows users to attach the platform at multiple angles to virtually any part of the vehicle itself.
Furthermore, the included arms allow you to build multiple setups on the fly thanks to their tool-less design. Here are a few examples of the different type of shots you can get with the system.
