The V-Grip USB Focus Handle from Aputure is an ergonomic remote that allows you to control the video start/stop button, digital zoom, aperture, and the adjustment of your camera settings. The V-Grip allows you to control the focus of a variety of autofocus lenses, manual lenses do not allow autofocus control.

Built into the controller is a 1/4"-20 threaded mounting stud, providing you the flexibility to mount the controller to a variety of devices. The included mounting adapters enable attachment to shoulder rigs and jibs. An optional crab clamp can be used to attach the V-Grip to pan handles or stands. It is firmware upgradeable, which allows the number of AF lenses it works with to be expanded. Two AAA replaceable AAA batteries (not included) will power the V-Grip for approximately 40 hours.

  • Can be updated with downloadable firmware updates
  • Supports different mounting accessories to attach to any tripod, rig, or crane (accessories not included)
  • Rubber buttons and finger grooves for comfortable operating

Digital Zoom (please note digital zoom does not function during recording).
Aperture Adjustment (the Canon 500D/T1i/Kiss X3 do not support aperture adjustment)
