That is good Constantine, great shoulder Pad design, however what I'm really wondering is if I could just adjust or adapt the Pad to my CLUTCH, mostly because I simply don't want to give away on anything different then the SUPERB design of the RED Quick Release system, I just love it too much, and have a all bunch of them and all cameras set up that way.
BTW, I really need to complement you on your WEB presentation, just absolutely great!!
oh, please do drop the mr. Rossi... I prefer Ketch... ;)
Ok sorry for the Mr Rossi thing , Iam always trying to be typical in my first contact with all fellow operators , and mainly that was the reason, but Iam mostly like to talk more like Iam talking with friends. So Ketch it is from now on.
thank you for your comments and if you would like any more info at all feel free to contact me anytime.
We will update everything slowly , right now we are trying to catch up as we made some upgrade decisions to offer from the start, instead of doing this after.
I constantly try to design as much as I can, and unfortunately the day has only 24 hours.lol.
Material quality, machining quality, and anodizing quality is one of the things we are really make sure is the top, and thats why we have gone with the best in the industry .
we are also listening a lot to people, and we will also offer some solutions that are not seen yet , example is extension bones, lws adaptors, and more ideas that coming out to reality. Its a petty that Easter is at the same time with NAB and the time lines are very tide but we will demo as much as we can to start with, making sure that we have everything done for production soon after.
Me and all the guys are working really hard to offer as much as possible, and there is many other configurations and sets that can be created , serving all cameras.
this is just the start.
Considering Chinese rigs , I will say that ( and I have a big experience with the Chinese) firstly they are made of the worst possible materials that are not certified, secondly they are anodized with the lowest quality, and last, I love to see less copies and more original designs in the industry, and more respect to people who really spent time inventing rather than reverse engineering.
this is a craft and also art at the same time and it should be treated as such. its passion of a few people with great experience in film making , trying to make loving
tools and it not so much for the money.
thank you very much again.
He he, emailed you to see the possibility to adapt your Pad to my CLUTCH... ;)
I can see that there is some debate going on about the TITAN Lite. Just to clarify for all members in here:
- We use top knotch CNC facilities that work for aerospace industry
- We use the best possible hard anodise facility
- We use 7075 t5 certified aircraft aluminum
- We do not charge extra for this. This is all included in the competitive price compared to other products on the market.
- We are looking into making adapter parts for people who wants to use existing gear combined with ours (but when you see it for yourself, you might not want to ;) ).
Besides of that the TITAN Lite can be seen for real at NAB. This is a rig that will move from any configuration to any camera - so its the only thing that will be needed.
Pleas stop by and see for yourself:-)
Yes we will be at NAB so you will have first hand look at this. And believe us we are to cater for DSLR market as well - but in the way it should be (even DSLR market will have a perfectly balanced and thought out rig) - we have figured out how we will make this rig work for all cameras, in all kinds of ways. We have a strategy for all of it.
Well there is probably a reason for why Mr. Callingaard. Went home and designed his own Rig.
First of all i been shooting ALOT with the clutch - And itīs pretty hard to find wordīs for it..... - well have can i put it - Well for me itīs lagging in some way - Handles are not holding their position.
And thatīs is actually with not much weight on them (since the weight should be on your shoulder). hahahahaha Thatīs mean in the breaksīs in between takeīs you have to fiddle around with it - instead of working and finding nice angelīs - And do what you have to do..
Then you end up with black hands because of the rubber is still not holding from the handles - You have the small knotīs on the side (14 mm wing nut). That just itching the side of your neck.. And then there is the speed (which anoyes me most). When you have to change from Stickīs / dolly to go handheld.. (and we even bought 2 for our rental shop).
I am not at all saying itīs a bad product - just thatīs itīs lagging in these areaīs - Which for me is key essentialīs.
Well am i the only one struggling with these issueīs..
6000 usd. For me lookīs like a fair price - Given the effort these guyīs have put into it - And yes i know mr. Callingaard very well - And exactly thatīs why i am looking so much forward for his product..

Interesting design but for the type of production I do (features / commercials) I need a simple system that goes from studio to handheld in seconds. For that reason, my rig of choice are O'Bars and a strap on shoulder pad (house of power, filmtools etc). No de-rigging or re-rigging, plus the most versatile and adaptable hand grips in the business at a fraction of Lite. I often do handheld from the hip, "machine gun" style. I screw an O'bar on the body cage and one into the MB on the opposite side to do this. None of the overly complex rigs afford me that versatility. The other aspect that the O'Bars solve are the overly long extension arms. Some love them long. I hate it as I feel I lose the direct control (which is why I'm not much of a fan of Mantis or Allstars extensions). As far as the Clutch goes, I concur with Mr. Riis, in that speed between Dolly, sticks, hand held and back again is vital in any rig.
