Bluehandle

Why Blue Handle?

The BMH system is designed for comfortable and stable hand-held use of motion picture and video cameras.

The system is composed of a camera fastening module, arms, handles, and a bracket for mounting additional accessories, such as LCD monitors, transmitters and gear motors. The various parts are assembled with a unique rosette wheel blocking design to allow for quick adjustments in all azimuths over 360 degree range in six degree increments.

The BMH systems, fits all professional film and video cameras by attaching to either their 19mm or 15mm rods, while it can also be mounted directly to Arriflex Cameras by way of their rosette wheel attachment points. The device's modular design also allows the operator to keep the right and/or left handle on camera at all times, on shoulder or on tripod.

It allows you to work without your being hampered by standard accessories in front of the camera (ie: follow focus systems, matteboxes, motors, etc.)

For film & video

  • Field tested.
  • Durable.
  • Superior ease of use.

Mod-03 Mod-02 Mod-01
Mod-01: 19mm Iris Rods Bridge (for 19mm bridge plate system) - CAD $491
Mod-02: 15mm Iris Rods Bridge (for 15mm bridge plate system) - CAD $491
Mod-03: 15mm light weight Rods Bridge (for S16mm and Video bridge plate systems) - CAD $480

These bridges are the base of the blue handle system; they fit onto the iris rods coming off the camera's bridge plate and will accept the many accessories described bellow.
Mod-04 Mod-05
Mod-04: 30 degree Offset 90mm - CAD $338
Mod-05: 30 degree Offset140mm - CAD $371

These brackets allow deporting the handle (Mod-06) 30 degrees away from the Iris Rods Bridge (Mod-01/02/03) in order to provide an optimum stability to the camera (wider spacing of the operator's hands, optimum weight balance of the camera load, regardless of the less used.
Mod-06
Mod-06: Handle - CAD $338

This handle will attach itself either onto the Iris Rods Bridge (Mod-01/02/03) or to any of the available Offsets (Mod-04/05/17/18) or Brackets (Mod-09).
Mod-07
Mod-07: 90 degree Elbow - CAD $327

This 90 degrees elbow offers a 3rd axis to the positioning of the handle (Mod-06), or for example to combine a Mod-05 with a Mod-10 in order to have a 360 degree swivel for the LCD monitor support.
Mod-08 Mod-11 Mod-12
Mod-08: Aaton rosette to ARRI rosette converter - CAD $218
Mod-11: ARRI rosette to ARRI rosette converter - CAD $240
Mod-12: Moviecam to ARRI rosette converter - CAD $229

These adapters allow you to interface the blue handle system to any other camera systems available. For example you can attach the Aaton or Moviecam pistol grip to the blue handle system and take advantage of the ON/OFF switch feature.
Mod-09
Mod-09: 90 degree Offset - CAD $371

This offset is very useful to go around a follow focus disc if located close to the camera body for example. It also allow to attach two other bracket out of one anchor point.
Mod-10
Mod-10: Accessory Holder - CAD $251

This bracket will hold LCD monitors, video/lens transmitters, etc. Very useful, it offers 360 degrees positioning of any accessory you would otherwise Velcro to the camera body. It also helps a lot to balance the weight load of the camera in handheld and steadicam configurations. It is a very secure fastener.
Mod-15/15 Mod-15/19
Mod-15/15: to clamp on any 15mm iris rod or spigot. - CAD $512
Mod-15/19: to clamp on any 19mm iris rod or spigot. - CAD $512

It allows you to attach a handle (Mod-06) directly to an iris rod or to attach the accessory holder (Mod-10) to a spigot for example.
Mod-16
Mod-16: Oppenheimer adapter - CAD $360

This adapter accepts any Microforce Oppenheimer handle and interfaces it to the blue handle system; it can come in place of a Mod-06 for example.
Mod-17 Mod-18
Mod-17: Straight 90mm offset - CAD $338
Mod-18: Straight 140mm offset - CAD $371

These brackets allow deporting the handle (Mod-06) away from the Iris Rods Bridge (Mod-01/02/03) in order to provide an optimum stability to the camera (wider spacing of the operator's hands, optimum weight balance of the camera load, regardless of the less used). Same as Mod-04 & Mod-05 without the 30 degree deport.
Mod-19
Mod-19: 90mm horizontal offset - CAD $371

This offset is designed to provide a wider spacing between the operator’s hands to increase the stability of the camera. It can also be attached to the camera body and give a grip to any other module of the blue handle system.
