AbelCine Cameo Line Solves (Set) Life's Little Problems

In a splendor of animated gifs, AbelCine announces an accessory to make things just a little more secure on your rig.

No one wants to break anything on a film set; every little bit of kit is expensive. But a set is a chaotic environment in which a lot of small parts are forced to work together, and if you aren't careful, you can put your camera and accessories in precarious positions. When one manufacturer makes everything, it's generally easy to secure, but when you want toys from different manufacturers to play nice with each other, you need to be extra conscientious to make sure everything is secured properly.

First teased at NAB this year, AbelCine is expanding on their cameo line of small tools for camera rigging to help make sure everything plays together, and stays together, no matter how crazy the shoot. To celebrate, they decided to use the internet's favorite mode of communication to show off all the little features of the Cameo V-lock: the humble gif.
