Did you know that Image Gear Inc. is the exclusive Canadian supplier of Ronford-Baker and Petroff products?
The strength of Image Gear over the years has always been the relationships with clients and suppliers. We're particularly proud of our long-standing relationship with both Ronford-Baker and Petroff.
Ronford-BakerRonford-Baker has been engineering and manufacturing motion picture support equipment for over 56 years. They were recognized for their achievements in technical excellence with an Academy Award in 1993 for the development of the variable speed fluid head and their tripods. Ronford-Baker products which include fluid heads, tripods, bazookas, sliders and camera accessories possess a build quality unmatched by any other and are famous for serving their owners for their entire careers.
PetroffR.D.Petroff Inc. began in Toronto, Canada as the only company in the Americas designing professional camera accessories. From 1979 to 1992 Petroff products went through several modifications reflecting and adapting to the technological developments of the field, supplying the big names in the film industry – Dedo Weigert Film, Sony Canada, Miller Tripods, Cartoni US and Zacuto.
Petroff invented and patented the first modular, no-tool assembly system MatteBox at the time. An advanced version of the Petroff Follow-Focus was marketed and sold as the “Zacuto Follow-Focus”.
To compete with the pricing of low-quality knock-offs, Petroff moved its manufacturing to Bulgaria which has allowed for the reduction of costs while delivering uncompromised quality.
