The Ringo Head™ is a camera accessory that allows an operator to mount any professional video camera at 90 degrees. New production styles can require images to be captured in a vertical orientation rather than the traditional horizontal mode. This technique is often used in point of sale, fashion, and event display environments.
The Ringo Head™ allows an operator to easily mount their camera at a right angle and operate with existing tripod heads, jibs, and Steadicams™. The Ringo Head™ keeps the camera's center of gravity and lens aligned over the center of a tripod head.
The Ringo Head™ consists of a horizontal plate that attaches to a tripod wedge plate, a fixed vertical support that holds a camera's quick release plate, and an adjustable vertical support that holds the camera handle.
