US Patent:
4078170, Mar 7, 1978
Appl. No.:
5/629532
Inventors:
Conrad Beebe Sloop - Huntington Beach CA
International Classification:
F21V 710
US Classification:
362322
Abstract:
Apparatus for use with a camera and flash unit to provide diffused light, including a support frame for holding a flash unit so it emits light upwardly, and for holding a reflector screen above the flash unit and facing forwardly and downwardly to reflect light from the flash unit in a largely forward direction. The reflector screen includes a sheet of flexible reflective material and a resilient wire reflector frame for holding the reflective sheet taut and for mounting it on the support frame.

Camera-Holding Frame

View page
US Patent:
4198150, Apr 15, 1980
Filed:
Dec 16, 1977
Appl. No.:
5/861118
Inventors:
Conrad B. Sloop - Huntington Beach CA
International Classification:
G03B 1503
G03B 1756
G03B 2900
US Classification:
354293
Abstract:
A frame which can be held in an upright position, and which can hold a camera so that the camera can be turned from a horizontal to a vertical position without substantially shifting the position of the lens axis, and without utilizing an obstruction behind the back of the camera which would prevent it from opening to change the film. This allows the hand of the photographer, which is grasping a handle such as a palm pad while also turning the lens barrel to focus the lens, to turn the lens barrel at either position of the camera. The apparatus includes a pair of links connecting the frame to a camera mount on which the camera is held, with the links mounted so that when the camera mount rotates 90. degree. the position of a point located a predetermined distance, such as 11/2 inches, beyond the camera mount does not undergo a change in position.

Camera Side Strap

View page
US Patent:
3938166, Feb 10, 1976
Filed:
Oct 10, 1974
Appl. No.:
5/513761
Inventors:
Conrad Beebe Sloop - Huntington Beach CA
International Classification:
G03B 2900
US Classification:
354 82
Abstract:
A strap assembly for attachment to a typical 35mm camera, including a yoke with a middle portion lying against the right side of the camera and a pair of straps extending over the front or rear and then over the bottom of the camera and held by a knob threaded into the tripod socket of the camera. A finger strap mounted on the middle yoke portion is designed to firmly receive the middle, ring, and little fingers of the hand so that the camera cannot fall and yet these fingers can securely grasp the camera to hold it upright. The strap forms a loop whose axis is angled upwardly from the horizontal and inwardly towards the optical axis, so that a good grip can be obtained while the index finger of the hand is free to reach over the top of the camera to depress the shutter release button and the thumb is free to move the film advance lever.

Camera Shoulder Case

View page
US Patent:
4323180, Apr 6, 1982
Filed:
Mar 26, 1980
Appl. No.:
6/134183
Inventors:
Conrad B. Sloop - Huntington Beach CA
International Classification:
A45F 500
US Classification:
224202
Abstract:
A camera shoulder case is provided which permits rapid opening, full visibility, and easy access to one layer of securely held equipment in the case while the case remains supported by a shoulder strap on the user. The assembly includes a lower case part which holds the equipment, a cover pivotally mounted to the rear of the lower case part, and a shoulder strap having opposite ends mounted to opposite sides of the lower case part. A flexible loop member which is mounted to the cover, slidably receives the shoulder strap. With the case supported on a person, access is obtained by pulling up on the cover to pivot down the lower case part until it is horizontal, the strap-receiving loop then resisting closing of the cover. The lower case part can be partitioned by the user to securely hold equipment by the use of pylon devices that can be installed in selected holes of an array of holes formed at the bottom of the lower case part.

Frame For Holding A Camera

View page
US Patent:
4104623, Aug 1, 1978
Filed:
Nov 6, 1975
Appl. No.:
5/629531
Inventors:
Conrad Beebe Sloop - Huntington Beach CA
International Classification:
G03B 1756
US Classification:
354293
Abstract:
Apparatus for holding a camera and flash unit so they are separated from one another, including a frame having an upper portion for holding the flash unit and a lower portion for holding the camera, and having a pair of laterally spaced handles near the lower portion. The handles are oriented so they can be held comfortably at slightly below eye level with the upper arms extending down and braced against the body and the forearms extending upwardly. One of the handles forms a palm pad lying under the camera so that the right hand can hold the pad in the palm while the thumb and middle or forefinger rest on the camera lens to turn it for focusing, or rest on the aperture ring for changing the lens opening. The other handle, which receives the left hand, is in the form of a bar which is angled from the vertical so it can be held without cramping the photographer's hand at the wrist.

Quick Release Camera Mounting Mechanism

View page
US Patent:
5230490, Jul 27, 1993
Filed:
Oct 26, 1992
Appl. No.:
7/966327
Inventors:
Conrad Sloop - Pittsford NY
Assignee:
Saunders Photo/Graphic Inc. - Rochester NY
International Classification:
F16M 1104
US Classification:
248187
Abstract:
A camera mounting and quick release mechanism includes a stationary base plate and cover plate, with a movable cam plate captured between them. The base plate includes a first clamping flange extending upward along one side, a spring-loaded lock pin movable into and out of the base plate, and an actuating spring to urge the cam plate in a clamping position. The base plate and cover plate together support cam pins which extend through the cam plate. The cam plate is movable between a clamping position and a release position, and include cam slots for engagement with the cam pins, a lock aperture for locking engagement with the lock pin when the cam plate is in its release position, and a second clamping flange movable with the cam plate relative to the first clamping flange for releasable engagement with a camera dovetail base. In another embodiment, a safety lever is rotatable on the base plate between a safety position to prevent release movement of the mechanism, and an open position to permit its release movement. The safety lever is held in its safety position by the actuating spring, and is movable to its open position by manual force opposed to the force on the cam plate release tab.
