Above is an old video I did a few months ago showing the new P&C (photographyandcinema.com) Pistol Grips and more importantly, explaining why we decided to make them. These unique wide platform handles make shooting video with small cameras more ergonomic and stable. We’ve had prototypes of these Pistol Grips for several months already, and have been using them quite a bit for casual news gathering and event coverage.

Our primary setup to cover Las Vegas PMA @ CES 2012 with Olivia, was based on two P&C Pistol Grips and a friction arm. We attached the camera on one handle and the LED light on the other. We simplified the audio by just using a Zoom H1 portable audio recorder for the interviews. Although it may not have been the best video quality from the Sony HX9V point and shoot cameras, we were able to travel extremely light and get the job done to provide content for the viewers.
Come time for MacWorld in San Francisco just a few weeks ago, we decided to cover the event entirely on the iPhone 4s using the same Two Grip setup. The iPhone video isn’t quite up to par compared to the Sony, but we definitely were able to turn some heads at the event. You’ll start to see some of those videos online soon.
The Grips will come with a D-Ring so you can attach it to a keyring and have it readily available on your gear bag. You can find the new P&C Pistol Grips available PhotographyandCinema.com (for USA only), and via eBay for both USA and International (click here).
