It's here: the new CameoGrip by CameoGear. With its unique retro-style design, CameoGrip can be mounted beneath a mirrorless camera, onto the handgrip of a shoulder-mounted camera, or on the pan-arm of a tripod. In any configuration, CameoGrip provides ergonomic support and access to important controls. Designed for easy and comfortable control access, you can also assign functions to each button to better suit your needs.

Each CameoGrip includes an ARRI rosette adapter and either a LANC or Sony multi-terminal cable. Boasting a solid aluminum spine and high-quality materials and connectors used throughout, this grip is built to last. CameoGrip is ever evolving, so stay tuned for future firmware updates that will unlock new functions.
