new axial camera arm for handheld

caleb crosby
 

Brothers in handheld,  

I have built a new camera arm that I’d been pondering for a couple years, finally hitting on the jackpot mechanisms recently and it all fell together about exactly as planned. (not the way product developments tend to go!)

A few weeks ago I delivered the first working unit to a DP on a doc feature and real world testing checks out positive. It mirrors the human arm to create 3 or 4 orbits of movement that put your grip about anywhere spatially, including under lens center. It adjusts rapidly with a push button and/or lever. If you are exacting in your grip positioning it’s worth a look.

it’s built for owner-op run and gun work, internally non rosette which offers great operational speed. For features where assistants usually sharpie mark (Spider) grips on the rosette to pre-position for the operator it 
is worth a look for exacting positioning or when quick precise changes are needed. 

Also for features - this will serve as a camera monitor arm that adjusts horizon at a touch. 

I’m working on distribution and patent app currently so they wont be available retail for a few months but I can make them to order- and need a couple sales! (It’s affordable)

If your interested - email or text and I’ll link you to a bare bones shop demo hot off the lathe. Nothing fancy but the arm explains itself elegantly when you see it move. More than glad to answer questions on phone. 

To recap: business mode is stealth/NDA but operations: ready for prime time. 

Cheers,

Sorry Matthew, I accidentally posted link to main list and had to delete it to prevent a
couple conglomerates from using me as their “volunteer" designer again. All they change is the brand!

I’m reloading now and will send a new link privately in the morning.

Sorry to everyone for the mis send-
