Oscar®-Worthy Camera Support Technology
Ronford Baker manufactures Academy Award®-winning fluid heads and tripods, as well as sliders, billet bazookas, track, beams, grip equipment, transit cases, and camera and video accessories.
Ronford-Baker Engineering was formed in 1966 and soon became known as a place to get ‘specials’ engineered for feature films. One such request led to the development of the telescopic heavy-duty tripod that is now used worldwide. The British company also designed and developed the first fluid head with variable levels of fluid damping.
Ronford-Baker is still owned and run by the same team of hands-on people, who collectively have over 200 years of experience in the design, development, manufacture, service, and use of camera support equipment.
