Chimera Dinkum Cine Lens Shade Clamp Mount


The professional cameraman’s favorite choice for two decades, the Dinkum Systems®CINE™ lens shade helps keep your lens free of sun, dust and drizzle. Featuring a large 10”x 6½” beveled-edge anti-reflective aluminum shade supported by a super-strong spring clamp and a 15-link, 16″ long, multi-directional, length-adjustable arm.

Designed for use on larger film and video cameras, the CINE™ lens shade, or “french flag”, attaches quickly and accurately to multiple points on the camera body or mattebox. The surprisingly strong plastic clamp has 1.5”-wide rubber-coated jaws and pivoting rubber tips which ensure a solid base, enabling multiple points of attachment, yet eliminating scratches or damage to equipment.

Optional bases:

The Screw Mount is a base that attaches to the threaded receptacle on your accessories block, camera handle or female-threaded mini-Cardellini clamps – providing secure fastening to all standard ¼-20″ attachment points. No tools required to interchange parts: simply pop apart, and press back together!

This Fixed Base Mount is ideal for shooters who prefer a mounting solution with a horizontal profile. The Fixed Base Mount tightens on to the ¼”-20 female thread on the handle of professional cameras and provides a low profile with uninterrupted handgrip.
