   A complete re-think of handgrips from the ground up. Now your grip can be a vital, primal connection to your shots. We've made something new - a tool designed to get old. That stays with you thru product cycles and bridges camera platforms. Your matte box, your sticks - your grip. We make them just as plain grips, with trigger control for many cameras and with a full brain that speaks to cameras over serial protocols. Our Clockarm, Dovetail and Cinegrip work in concert to get your body alligned, balanced


  -and in control. Three buttons under the thumb give dead simple camera response. we don't let function run away with form. This is no gameboy controller. Three buttons provide 6 camera functions- just stab down and get Focus Magnification, Iris, FPS, Steadishot, Zebra, Peaking etc...  Cinegrips put the stuff you need under pressure- under your finger tips- fingertips that only touch hardwood buttons, sanded to a glass shine and flush mounted in walnut. Why? Because it's better. 


   We have been pacing industry grip development since 2012. Change is great but our wrists, elbows and shoulders are a constant. We built the most adjustable system in the industry to respect that - and make your job easier. When you get your next new camera - migrate your trusty Cinegrip and - upgrade the technology - without downgrading your comfort and working preferences.

The CAD clip below shows an advanced system for doing something pretty simple - getting your hand on a camera. We created a grip that travels with you on multiple pro cameras and upgrades as new ones come out. A handgrip is kind of a primal thing and now all the cameras you use will fit your body the same way- like a glove.

Your hand is a great tool, we make it fit your camera. Welcome to Shooting Machine!



Below our first product - from last year- The ShotGrip Top Handle. This handle will soon fit the FS 700, Canon C300, Black Magic and a universal pedestal base for all cameras with threaded sockets or cheeseplate. It's very popular with shooters worldwide (see reviews).
