The SharpShooter Camera Mount
A revolution in action photography!
Made in USA
Being a bird, wildlife and sport enthusiast means using big and heavy lenses. That used to mean using big and heavy support and special "long lens techniques". Over time heavy lenses cause play to develop in the camera lens mount. Tripod collars never seemed to lock solidly enough which resulted in critical focus issues. Handholding a heavy lens was almost impossible as well. This often meant many shots missed while trying to "set up". There are other solutions for hand holding available, but they only address one issue. And when utilized they are not much more stable than using nothing at all.
Five years ago we began development of the SharpShooter Camera Mount to solve all of these problems. With the Sharp Shooter Camera Mount your camera and lens effectively handles like a proper rifle for quick and accurate response to rapidly changing photo opportunities. Most users can easily hand hold a 500mm f/4 lens (3kg, 6.6lbs) for extended periods, some can even hand hold 600mm f/4 and 800mm f/5.6 (6kg, 12.5lb) lenses with stability for short periods.
But you don't have to hand hold with the SharpShooter system! Simply mount it to any existing tripod, monopod, or other arca compatible suport. When you want to use it hand held you just unclamp it and you are ready to go! When used with a tripod it's no longer a tripod. By securely making you a part of the SharpShooter system it becomes a pentapod support! It's as stable and accurate as any system used by a marksman making precision 1000yd shots! The many benefits of the SharpShooter system include:
Turns your camera and lens into a solid handheld unit.
Eliminates play in lens mounts and tripod collar.
Incorporates a trigger which functions identical to the shutter release on your camera.
Can be mounted in any Arca compatible monopod clamp, tripod head, or gimbal.
Accepts most Arca compatible accessories such as flash brackets.
Adjustable for individual fit allowing a proper "shooters stance".
Enables you to handhold more weight, with more stability, than any other system of it's kind.
Instantly switch between handheld , tripod , monopod.
Modular! Buy the whole system or only the components you need.
The system includes the SharpShooter Camera Stock, SharpShooter MonoRail, SharpShooter grips, and accessories.
