We Manufactured This Handle But YOU Made It Happen!

-the story of SmallRig Top Handle for RED DSMC2 1961

We got complaints about using top handles on RED DSMC2 cameras that the regular handles are too long and too tall for the limited space, so it will be painful to attach external battery pack or to use the monitor.

We solved the first problem in days: the grip had to be at a delicate length to fit different palm size and to avoid blocking the monitor or battery. NATO structure is what we wanted but it will raise the height of handle for sure.

Julien Badarely suggested a reversed design so the handle won’t block the battery.

Nathan DuMoulin suggested a rubber cover in front of handle to cushion accidental impact to the monitor. Nathan also thought we could use a thinner grip. garet.js suggested a combination of wood and aluminum for the grip part, and more standard threads at the rear to attach more accessories.

Leave a review 5/5 Great Item, totally worth the purchase! Written by Martin on 22nd Jul 2017 Wonderfully machined piece of aluminium. Ordered it for my BMD Ursa Mini Pro (together with the top plate this is just wonderful to use). Perfect sized, I had the normal screw-attached grips before, but prefer this one for sure. thought out mounting points for accessories, such as a non-twist mounting hole for a magic arm attachment. I also use this on my b-camera-rig (Sony a6300) and it works flawlessly! 5/5 Excellent Low profile handle for Weapon Camera Written by NT on 12th Jul 2017 Excellent product, well machined and finished. Fits very nicely front-mounted with the 7" red touch monitor attached. Can also be mounted backward near the battery, as per the product picture. I would recommend putting a nylon or plastic washer under the lock-knob for better locking down. Also low enough to not restrict the 7" red touch and short enough as to not interfere with the V-Lock battery .Great product. SmallRig NATO Top Handle for RED Cameras 1961

Comment from Nathan DuMoulin: Well, my SmallRig DSMC2 top handle has arrived, and I must say that it’s pretty much perfect. I use the 7″” touch, and the handle doesn’t obscure any of the screen. The QR nato rail is super handy as well, and feels sturdy. Lots of mounting points (1/4-20, 3/8 and even rossette), and a little rubber bumper at the front to protect the screen. It’s even a sexy solid black, which means they clearly listened to us when we bitched about the prototype that had a wood finish.

I’m a huge supporter of SmallRig, as they’re one of the few manufacturers out there that build affordable accessories for us based on our feedback. They sent me this handle for free, but I did pay for the base plate and carbon rods that I also use and love. I also have the top plate, but I’m not really a fan since I try to keep my rig as light as possible.

Anyway, just wanted to share, and thank SmallRig for finally building a low profile handle that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to buy.
