SLR Camera Control

What is it?

CanAssist modified a commercial camera to enable users with limited hand and finger dexterity to access the settings on a digital single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. The modified camera and controller utilize a customized wheelchair mounting. The camera controls are adapted to function with the use of large buttons, which allow more sophisticated camera use, including ISO, aperture, and focus functions.

Key features

  • Integrated controller for digital SLR
  • Extended focusing levers
  • Wheelchair mount
  • Large buttons
  • Two-position shutter release switch

Who is it for?

The SLR Camera Control is designed for individuals with limited hand strength and dexterity who are unable to operate a regular SLR camera.
