   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. One that stays with you thru product cycles and bridges camera platforms. Your matte box, your sticks - your grip. We make them three ways; as plain dumb grips $750, with simple trigger stop/start, $1280 and with a full brain that activates menu control over serial protocol $1500/1750. That's one part of out effort - the other is basic operator chosen adjustability. 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 your thumb- a thumb that only touches hardwood buttons, sanded to a glass shine and flush mounted in walnut. Because it's better this way. 


   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 technology - without downgrading comfort and your working preferences.

We are presently pretty busy developing a new shoulder mount harness and filling orders. There is not enough time for marketing. Most of our recent info is on facebook. Please email or call if you need any specifics. We respond quickly and answer the phone. The products have been out working on A list features and with many busy owner/ops for over a year. It's tried and true - but still under the radar.

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).
