About

Smart-phones are the #1 used cameras in the world. We believe the future of media creation lies with these devices. Our Smart Grip (www.gripandshoot.com) launched 4 years ago and changed the way people take photos/video with their phones. People asked "How do I attach lights and accessories to my Smart Grip?". Well, here's our answer:

Your phone captures amazing media, but there’s still a few areas where it lacks power; that’s where we come in. CAGE is a professional rig that wirelessly controls your device and allows you to add essential accessories to bring your media to the next level. 

Your phone is great for fitting in your pocket, but not so great for holding out in front of you for long periods of time. It’s thin, slippery, and doesn’t do too well when dropped on cement. CAGE’s ergonomic frame is made from tough aircraft aluminum. It provides comfort, stability, and protection when shooting on location. 

With a span of 3.5”, CAGE is able to accommodate even the largest smartphones (with or without their cases). A standard ¼-20 mount on the bottom of the frame means that you can go from hand-held to tripod in seconds. 

Upgrade the quality of your media by taking advantage of CAGE’s three cold-shoe mounts. Attach microphones, top handles, lights, monitors, arms, teleprompter, everything you need to achieve professional production quality. 

Our 37mm Lens Adapter allows more creativity per project. Customize your shot by adding wide angle, telephoto, anamorphic, or fisheye lenses. The perfect lens can change the look of your media from good to great. 

Full control at your fingertips! CAGE’s Bluetooth Smart Grip allows you to control your phone without ever touching it. Using the free GRIP&SHOOT App (or other compatible Apps), you’re able to capture, zoom, expose, toggle video modes, and more via 3 Bluetooth buttons positioned exactly where you need them.  

Easily detach the Grip from your rig and use it as a remote to control your device over 100ft away. Get in the shot, be your own camera crew, and take full control of your media without ever touching your screen. 

CAGE has been through three years of development and testing. As engineers, we always strive for the perfect product. We've designed CAGE to not only adapt to everyone's skill level, but to remain compatible with the latest technology. We've already built and sold 20+ units, but need your help to ramp up production. 

               
           
  
 

Risks and challenges

Manufacturing a product always has it's challenges.

We are an Engineering Firm that designs products and machines for companies daily. We're familiar with all manufacturing processes and the common hiccups that can arise. With 40+ years experience we're able to react quickly and most efficiently. Our previous relationships with our suppliers ensure deadlines are met and Quality Control measures are already in place.

GRIP&SHOOT has been an internal project since 2012. Our Smart Grips have been sold for over 4 years now and our software is constantly being updated with the latest features. The only issues that might arise from this project are longer than expected machining and shipping times. We have planned accordingly and are confident we can deliver our CAGE Systems on time.

Our quality and passion for design is truly focused in this line of products. This is our "baby" and we will stop at nothing to make our dream become a reality.
