On Camera Reflector

Patent pending



I built the “On Camera Reflector” out of necessity for those quick interviews where my soundman operated the boom and the producer or reporter asks the questions. There’s no one there to hold a reflector, there’s no time to set up an HMI or no place to plug it in and my little Anton Bauer HMI is practically worthless in bright sunlight. Any more powerful HMI mounted on camera would require a battery belt, and I’m not about to carry another 15 lbs on me.  So far the on camera reflector has been a simple solution and a big hit with those who have seen it.

The mount is fully adjustable in every direction

It’s compact to carry and assembles in seconds
