Announcing New Faceware Hardware

New Mark 3.2 Camera for Faceware ProHD Headcam Systems

We have taken the enhancements made to the Mark 3 camera and refined them to make the camera stronger and easier to adjust all with an updated design.

  • A new cage protects the camera and strengthens  lateral pan adjustments.  Steel receiving threads and a larger bolt prevent stripping out the camera top.
  • Now you can tighten down pan adjustments as hard as you want without fear of damaging the camera.
  • The bar clamp has been spaced to ensure you can clamp down on single arms and hoops securely for years to come.
  • And finally, the camera back arch has also been redesigned to allow easier access to the camera controls while maintaining strength and improving overall aesthetic.

The new Mark 3.2 camera is available for stand-alone purchase or can be purchased as part of any new Faceware ProHD Headcam System package.
