Innovation and technical advances are great. They can open new possibilities and free us from burdensome limitations. While much of the form of cine cameras hasn't changed radically in the past few years, the simple fact is that human evolution takes place at a rather slower pace. The machines still need to interact with the same human body shape, the most basic of which are the hands we use to hold our tools.
Back in the 1970s, Aaton developed a wooden handgrip that really nailed it for many. It was elegant and comfortable, plus the oiled and carved walnut formed a patina over time that became like an old friend. With all of the changes to camera technology and shapes over time, the simple handgrip remained a stalwart. With that in mind, the Ergocine handgrip set borrows (with blessings) the Aaton shape to make a handgrip set that is comfortable and affordable for use on any manufacturer's camera. There's even room for a few innovations without disturbing the timeless beauty of the handgrip design. Take a look at my video to see the comfortable and attractive Ergocine handgrip set up close.
