I am Philippe Bordelais from France, some of you may know me as I am the designer of the Freestyle 3D Rig from P+S Technik.
During the past year I decided to create a line of accessories for the Steadicam universe under the name Abracam.
My first product that some of you may already know is a Universal Vehicle Mount.
I will soon have a website with the complete line to show you, I will let you know when it will be online, today I am presenting my second product: the "Dock n Roll".
It is an add-on for the Jerry Hill docking bracket and it is compatible with both versions sold by Jerry Hill and Tiffen.
It was during CINEC 2012 in Munich that I introduced this new accessory
Has it ever happened to you that a Director asks for a static shot and says that you do not have the time to switch to tripod?
Has it ever happened to you that a DoP asks to hold a specific framing for some time so that he can light the set and adjust camera with the image he wants?
The Dock n Roll allows to do that, by precisely choosing a framing while keeping your Rig securely locked on your docking stand.
The Dock n Roll is designed with Teflon bearings which comes also handy when you want to quickly estimate your fore and aft balance while building your rig.
It is extremely useful when you have several camera accessories you need to add to a setup and in particular with beam-splitter 3D Rigs that uses 2 cameras and are often difficult to balance.
