CLUTCH camera remote handle
THE SECOND batch of Clutch handles is now on order.
First batch was a full sell-out and I am happy to report people loved the quality and the functionality. Anticipated ship date for 2nd batch of Clutches is December 1st. It should not slip because we have ironed out our quality issues with the first batch.
PLEASE note that Gray Multijet and Zebra Wood are both available at a premium (select it in the pulldown menu - if you do not know what they look like - look at the LAST image in the carousel). The standard handle is Black Walnut.
The first few orders will receive a free gift and will be delivered on a first-come, first-served basis.
CLUTCH v1.0 is a LANC connected right handed, wired remote control handle, initially for the Z CAM E2 family of cameras (in the future control will be extended with additional adapter cables for other cameras).
It can control START/STOP and two rotary push button thumbwheels.
One thumbwheel controls Aperture, the other controls ISO and Shutter Speed.
(in the future we can modify the thumbwheel functionality with a firmware update)
We worked on ergonomics a lot to make the thumbwheels feel natural for usage during shooting.
One is positioned so it fits directly under the thumb - while not requiring the thumb to rest on it. The other is positioned so the forefinger can naturally access it.
Both Thumbwheels can also be clicked for additional functionality.
The entire handle ends with a standard spaced 1/4" 20 cheeseplate allowing any kind of mounting people want to use - but we will provide a small cage with a Male Arri Rosette.
CLUTCH is designed in the USA and made of hand-sanded, hand-oiled black walnut wood with a 6061 Hard black anodized aluminum armature holding custom made electronics.
