Okay, well … we can’t come up with a way to create more [human] hands for you – but, we did invent something that will help you do much more with the two that you already have … that’s right, we have (once again) found a way to “make the job that much easier” when it comes to synchronizing multi-camera arrays in complex camera set-up situations. And, because you asked for it – it now exists …


Shooting plates for VFX and need to ride iris on more than 4 lenses? 

Want to add a focus motor to your array so you’re not stressing about a lens barrel getting bumped?

Need a new solution? Well, then, it’s time to have a look at the new Factory Optic
