Announcing the New Cameo Product Line

AbelCine is pleased to announce the launch of the Cameo line of digital cinema accessories. Leveraging more than 25 years of experience with professional cameras, lenses and accessories, Cameo products are designed to fill in the gaps and make connections between traditional camera gear.

The value and quality that customers have come to expect from AbelCine is infused into the Cameo line. In order to support our customers, we have frequently identified pieces of technology that will streamline camera related workflow, providing the customized “glue” that our customers need. In the past, these solutions have been supplied on an ad-hoc basis, but the Cameo line will allow these products to be developed on an ongoing basis.

Cameo products that are currently available include:

V-Lock Kit

The Cameo V-Lock Kit provides quick and secure mounting of your camera accessories. It is designed to be compatible with many common third-party V-Lock systems. Comprised of male and female components, our V-Lock Kit is constructed of precision-machined aluminum and stainless steel, and it features a backup safety latch. Both units allow for attachment to accessories from either the front or the back, without the need for disassembly.

  • Multiple mounting positions
  • Safety latch prevents accidental release
  • Release lever can be positioned on either side allowing release by push or pull motion
  • Compatible with third-party V-Lock components
  • Captive 1/4-20 screws included
  • Available accessories include the Arri Ring, 2×4 V-Plate, 4×5 V-Plate and Chico Clamp

VESA Mount

The Cameo VESA Mount fits onto a 5/8″ stud or junior stand and is the most advanced mount on the market in terms of monitor positioning and safety. The unit offers 360° of rotation, allowing for easy monitor leveling or on-the-fly vertical to horizontal repositioning, as well as 230° of tilt adjustment. Internal friction pads prevent monitor slippage when adjusting either axis.

LANC Cables

The Cameo LANC Cables convert closed circuit trigger signals from a FIZ handgrip or video lens to a LANC record/stop signal and a second user-assignable function (on compatible cameras). The cables also output the camera’s record status, which can feed a tally light, switcher or any device with a tally input. The LANC circuitry is protected in a housing that is thinner than a AA battery and is powered directly from the LANC port, so no external power source is needed. A variety of connections are provided depending on the available power source of the camera. There are two Y cables for powering ENG and cine-servo lenses. They allow for triggering from the lens and enable custom programming of the RET button.

Compatible LANC cameras include:

  • Sony cameras including FS7, FS700, FS100
  • Canon video cameras including C100, C300, C500
  • Blackmagic Pocket Cinema, Cinema, Production 4K, and URSA cameras
  • Some JVC GY-HM models

Supported accessories include:

  • ENG/servo lenses
  • Ergocine
  • Hedén Carat
  • Bartech BFD
  • Preston MDR2
  • Preston V+F

Lens Donuts – Large and Small

Constructed of 1/4″ thick neoprene and measuring 8.5″ (215.9mm) wide, the lens donuts are designed to prevent light leaks between the lens and mattebox. The openings of the lens donuts are 4″ (101.6mm) and 2.5″ (63.5mm) for the large and small versions, respectively. 


AbelCine is also partnering with other manufacturers to develop additional Cameo products to work more effectively with other pieces of equipment. Be sure to contact AbelCine Sales to learn more about Cameo products.
