The Gimbal Rail Clamp for Remote Focus includes:
Lightweight Gimbal Mounting
The Gimbal Rail Clamp for Remote Focus attaches to the hot shoe of any camera to provide a pair of 15mm rail clamps, ideal for attaching the motor of a remote focus system. The Rail Clamp replaces the need for a heavy camera baseplate while operating any gimbal based stabiliser. This reduces the weight of the overall system, allowing not only for longer shooting times without operator fatigue, but also the creative freedom to use a wider variety of lenses.
The Gimbal Rail Clamp for Remote Focus features a pair of industry standard 15mm rail clamps. This allows for the remote focus motor to be placed on either side of the camera for optimal balance. The ability to choose specific rail length also sheds any unnecessary weight on the rig.
The Gimbal Rail Clamp for Remote Focus secures to the hot shoe of any camera by tightening its large knurled screw. This allows the Rail Clamp to be attached and removed securely without any tools.
What is the Gimbal Rail Clamp for Remote Focus?
The Gimbal Rail Clamp for Remote Focus is a hot shoe bracket that provides any camera with a set of industry standard 15mm rail clamps.
Do I need two rails with the Gimbal Rail Clamp for Remote Focus?
No, only one rail is required to attach a remote focus motor to the clamp.
Why would I want the Gimbal Rail Clamp for Remote Focus over a standard camera baseplate?
All gimbal systems have maximum weight capacities, and many can only support 5 pounds. By replacing a standard camera baseplate with the Gimbal Rail Clamp for Remote Focus, you are shedding unnecessary pounds that could prevent you from using certain lenses, but still have the ability to mount crucial 15mm accessories like remote focus motors.
Why would I need to mount a remote focus motor on my gimbal?
Gimbal Stabilisers are much like Steadicam systems in that they operate using balance. If an outside force is introduced, like that of a hand pulling focus on the lens, the balance of the system could be knocked off and the gimbal would not perform well. By adding remote focus to the gimbal, focus control can be moved to the tip of the operator’s finger, or wirelessly to a remote focus puller.
