Zacuto USA has just announced the Point’n'Shoot Pro external camera grip for those wishing to shoot steady video with their compact cameras without mounting them on a tripod. “The Point’n'Shoot Pro is my favorite Zacuto product. I originally made it just for me,” says Zacuto owner, Steve Weiss. “I love to use point and shoot cameras to shoot video, especially now that you can
shoot full 1080 24p. Trying to hold one of those tiny cameras steady is impossible but the Point’n'Shoot makes it the steadiest camera in the world. Having the quick-release makes it so I can put the camera in my back pocket and the Point’n'Shoot in the other.” The Point~n~Shoot Pro is available for $89.

Introducing Zacuto USA’s Point’n'Shoot Pro

CHICAGO, IL—(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) - Zacuto’s Point’n'Shoot Pro is the answer to all point and shoot camera video stabilization needs. The Point’n'Shoot Pro is small, lightweight and portable. It’s perfect for shooting HD video with small cameras like the Canon PowerShot SD4500 IS or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH20K.

Because point and shoot cameras are so small, people find them difficult to hold. The camera grip on the Point’nShoot Pro eliminates this problem. The Point’n'Shoot Pro is equipped with a ¼” 20 screw mount and will work with any camera that has a ¼” 20 screw tap. The handgrip also has a ¼” 20 thread on the bottom so you can easily mount the system to a tripod. Whether capturing still images or shooting video, the Point’n'Shoot Pro is there to make sure your image is steady and clear.

“The Point’n'Shoot Pro is my favorite Zacuto product. I originally made it just for me,” says Zacuto owner, Steve Weiss. “I love to use point and shoot cameras to shoot video, especially now that you can
shoot full 1080 24p. Trying to hold one of those tiny cameras steady is impossible but the Point’n'Shoot makes it the steadiest camera in the world. Having the quick-release makes it so I can put the camera in my back pocket and the Point’n'Shoot in the other. It’s a must have.”

While Zacuto is most well known for developing accessories for larger prosumer cameras like the Sony F3, there is always room for improving the image quality of point and shoot cameras. It doesn’t matter if you are shooting on a Panasonic HVX200 or a small point and shoot camera you bought at Best Buy. With more and more people using these cameras to upload videos to websites like YouTube or Vimeo, stabilization needs to be addressed. Zacuto is there to fulfill the needs of any potential filmmaker.
