The Camtrol Prime Hand-held Stabilizing Platform offers an ergonomic base for DV and DSLR cameras with free angle LCD displays, and incorporates a customizable design to provide action and movement stabilization. Providing freedom of movement, it allows right or left handed operation via the action control grip.
Supporting a payload of 7 lb comprising of cameras, lens, and accessories, the Prime Hand-held Stabilizing Platform integrates a standard stabilizer bar that accommodates cameras with a vertical height up to 3.75" (95.3mm). Providing a high degree of customization, the platform integrates 3 locking ball joints and a vertical stabilizer bar. You can stand upright while capturing ground level, overhead, and around-object shots. The “shift on the fly” feature allows you to set the platform down anywhere, and all adjustments to the platform can be made using bare hands, eliminating the need for special tools.
Perfect balance is achieved via the Prime’s centering channels that allow you to easily locate and adjust the camera’s center of gravity. You can securely attach the cameras to the platform via the CMP (Channeled Mounting Plate) that also offers anti-slip and anti-vibration protection. Protection from impacts and scratches is provided via rear leg retraction forming a skid plate.
You can quickly and safely set down the camera anywhere to alter or reconfigure the current setup owing to the presence of the QPRLs (Quad Pod Retractable Landing Legs). A safe and stable editing and dubbing platform is provided by the Prime when its legs are extended. You can use the CMP to securely attach any camera via the 1/4” mounting thumb screw which has a 1/4” thread at its bottom that accepts quick release plates, monopods, and tripods. Switching between free and static shooting modes is easily possible via the Prime.
The RP/RA (Receiver Post for Remote and Accessories) provides for attachment of the Camtroller remote controller and V-Slope bracket (both sold separately) to the action control grip. All wires are run through the hollow grip ensuring a cable-free experience for the operator. Steady floating and dramatic mobile shots are rendered possible via the action control grip that incorporates a “true feel” grip experience. Constructed from lightweight aluminum, the Prime Hand-held Stabilizing Platform weighs 1.8 lb, and is anodized to protect its finish. You can store the Prime in your photo bag owing to its lightweight and portable (10 x 6.3 x 2.5" (254 x 160 x 93.5mm)) design.
