Proton Pack is a backpack-worn camera accessories platform. It includes a multitude of mounting options for your:

  • Batteries (gold mount)

  • MDR

  • Wireless HD Transmitter

  • Timecode generator

  • Cinetape readout

  • Focus Monitor

  • Any and all camera peripherals!

Handheld shooting and cramped sets often require cameras to be as small as possible. DPs often request that the camera to be completely stripped-down. Proton Pack provides the perfect, elegant solution to accomplish these builds without compromise to your normal workflow.

Convenient velcro surfaces and cheese plates make secure attachments for all of your professional accessories. The business end of your rig can now be as simple as: body, lens, & motor. That's it! 

Proton Pack's power system is ready for 12v or 24v camera systems and provides 12v p-tap breakout power for all peripherals. 

Ideal for working with Arri Alexa Mini, Red DSMC, and film cameras, Proton Pack is more than simply a backpack plate. It is a complete system providing all the custom cables and accessories you will need for any build.
