The CameoGrip is a retro-style, electronic handgrip that can mount Bolex-style under a small camera, be used with the included rosette adapter as a handgrip with an over-the-shoulder camera, or be used with a 3rd party clamp as a pan-arm grip. It is a valuable accessory for lightweight cameras like the Sony FS5, Sony Alpha series, Canon C300 MK II, Panasonic EVA1, and more.

The Cameo Grip can control cameras that support the LANC remote control protocol as well as Sony cameras with a Multi-Terminal port. Functions include run/stop, zoom control, iris control (on LANC cameras) and other functions that can be assigned using a software interface over USB. It connects to a camera via an 8-pin Hirose connector on the rear.

The Cameo Grip is designed to support a free-range, cage-free shooting style with lightweight digital cameras in the style of old Super-8 and small 16mm Bolex cameras. This modern twist on a classic design will give you that old school feel with state of the art camera control.
