    Don't show me awesomely cool things I cannot purchase yet.


    I always wanted the ebony version of the Movigrip handle that the guy does on special request. If I remember correctly he quoted me around $1300 for a grip in ebony with a start / stop button. At the time it was too rich for my blood:

    When you think of what Aaton used to be... Now they're making handgrips for other camera manufacturers... it's kinda sad indeed, but it must be me, as a French. Their audio gear apart, of course.

    Jean-Pierre Beauviala is truly missed.

    I really love my Ergocine grip, but since David Fords passing, this looks like my next upgrade for my hand held setup. Really glad this is happening!

    True. my first major success was on a super 16mm aaton. SR3 too big, too heavy, too expensive.

    the French are great innovators but at some point they became more about style then follow up and engineering.. the digital aaton could've been amazing ... more work less play ?

    I would love to have this with a built in RTmotion thumbwheel.
    I do still prefer a «*stick like*» handgrip as it doesn’t force you to hold it one way.

    But accessing RED menu on the tip of your finger is a big +
    To activate and desactivate the speed ramp for example.
    Is the small wheel precise enough to pilot a Zoom motor for example?
