RED - DSMC2 Side Handle




Designed for shooters who prefer a compact handheld configuration, the DSMC2 Side Handle offers the most ergonomic handle option—attaching directly to the side of the camera BRAIN®.

The DSMC2 Side Handle features a molded rubber grip and puts primary camera controls right at your fingertips. The dedicated Focus Control Wheel (front) offers direct control over lens focus, while the Iris Control Wheel (side) supports iris control and is user assignable to other camera control functions. The rotary wheel and D-Pad provide advanced control over menu options directly from the handle. Four customizable camera parameter buttons provide quick access to controls such as exposure, white balance, magnification toggle, and autofocus.

An intelligent DSMC2 handle wouldn’t be complete without a record button—allowing you to toggle record on/off directly from the handle. On top of an integrated RECORD button, the DSMC2 Side Handle features a MARK FRAME button, empowering you to tag frames while shooting and revisit them later in post-production.

NOTE: The DSMC2 Side Handle cannot be used simultaneously with the DSMC2 Outrigger Handle or DSMC2 Sidekick.
