Overview
  • 1Description

The Camtrol Prime 22 is a hand-held camera rig that allows you to capture ground level and overhead shots with large DV / DSLR cameras having free angle LCD displays and with combined camera/lenses weighing up to 7 lb (3.17 kg). It consists of an ergonomic grip, an adjustable stabilizing platform and a 5.25" (13.3 cm) vertical stabilizing bar.

While the centering channels allows you to find and adjust the camera's center of gravity for stable shooting, the Channeled Mounting Plate (CMP) enables secure attachment of cameras to the Camtrol Prime 22 and provides anti-slip / anti-vibration protection. In addition, the CMP has retractable legs that protect the mounted camera from impacts and scratches.

The CMP is attached to the camera with the help of a 1/4" mounting thumb screw. The 1/4" thread at the bottom of the thumb screw is compatible with quick release plates, monopods, or tripods, and allows the operator to easily switch between free shooting and static shots.

Quad pod retractable landing legs (QPRL) of the Camtrol Prime 22 allow you to customize the camera setup for different camera applications. Using the legs, you can configure the Camtrol Prime 22 to be used as a safe and stable editing and dubbing platform as well as a self imaging video trainer

Adjustable ball joints with locking mechanism and vertical stabilizer bar allows you to customize the Camtrol 22 for desired shooting conditions. By manually changing the configuration, you can capture ground level shots, overhead shots, and around-objects shots without even bending.

As you can operate the Camtrol Prime 22 rig with a single hand, you can conveniently operate the camera via a remote controller with the other hand. Thanks to a multi-faceted mechanism, the Camtrol Prime 22 also supports iPad and 2-camera operation.

You can attach the Camtroller and V-slope bracket to the action control grip via the Receiver Post for Remote and Accessories (RP/RA). Running the wires through the hollow grip, you can plug the wires into a LANC port or a digital L line. The RP/RA can also be used with an accessory shoe adapter to connect light panels and microphones.

A secure grip allows you to safely hold the camera and capture steady floating and dramatic moving shots. It works for both right and left handed operators. The Camtrol Prime 22 has a sturdy aluminum construction with an anodized finish. Measuring 10 x 6.375 x 2.5” (25.4 x 16.2 x 6.4 cm) in collapsed state and lightweight at 1.8 lb (0.816 kg), the Camtrol Prime 22 is highly portable and can be stored easily in an operator's photo bag.
