Camalot™: The Photographers Third Arm
   

One of ORC Forensics’ most popular camera accessories is the Camalot™: The Photographers Third Arm.  This unique tool provides you a hands free method of putting a measurement device in the frame of a picture. Often these items are purchased for investigators and medical examiners to help out while working in the field.  A person in any job that requires Frame-of-Reference (FoR) in photos could use the freedom and stability of a Camalot™.

The Camalot™ attaches to the bottom of most cameras via the standard #1/4-20 thread.  Additionally, the Camalot™ itself has a threaded hole on the bottom side so it can be combined with a tripod.  The telescoping arm is adjustable horizontally, vertically, and extends from 0” to 42” for a variety of situations.  Lock your arm’s position in place to create multiple consistent shots, whether they are points of interest on the floor, wall, or even ceiling.  Each Camalot™ comes with an ORC Forensics Standard ABFO #2 Corner Square; though most Frame-of-Reference tools can be softly pinched by the alligator clip's black vinyl tips.  All rules feature our Optirectilinear® graphics for optimum readability at a distance and in photographs. For the budget minded, we offer as a Sub-Assembly just the telescoping rod, clevis, and the alligator clip, referred to as the "WAND".

Quick and easy, you can keep both hands on the camera. No tools required for assembly or disassembly, and very portable.  If you use your camera a lot, get yourself a Camalot™.

  1. Length: 10" to 42” (25cm to 107cm)
  2. Weight:  12 ounces
  3. Carry Case provided, large enough to fit several sets of FoRs
  4. Includes ABFO #2 Corner Square, or optional equivalent

Additional Measuring Sets (Fractional/Metric, White/Black) include 2 sizes of Corner Squares and 2 sizes of Linear Rules. 

Lengths greater 42” can be achieved by attaching two Telescoping Rods in-line.  For horizontal application we recommend limiting the first rod (closest to the camera) to using only the 3 largest tubes.  This gives you about 68” of extension.  In the vertical plane you can fully extend to 84”. 

Camalot™ Flashlight Holder holds a 3/4” (18cm) diameter flashlight to the horizontal rod.

Vunderbar  
 

The Vunderbar™ is a self-standing photo bar designed to vastly improve methods of evidence documenting.  One investigator or medical examiner can now be more effective and accurate than several people using current practices.  This is a must-have tool for any professional needing a ruler scale associated with their photographs.  No tools necessary for assembly or disassembly.  The Vunderbar™ employs easy to see graduated arms using our Optirectilinear® graphics.  The arms can be manipulated in any 3-axis rotational plane and easily positioned next to subject matter without contact.  Uniquely planned tripod legs are low profile, less than 2 1/2” high, so that they can fit underneath objects in a way most tripods are unable to.   The legs can also be adjusted to move this unit around in tight quarters and even flat against a wall, and still, the Vunderbar™ is standing on its own.
