Celebrating 35 years of producing quality, cinema tools
Leading the Industry
R.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.
Cavision began to create cheap copies of our equipment, leading Petroff to invent and patent 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”.
2011 – Present
To compete with the pricing of low-quality, Chinese knock-offs, Petroff moves manufacturing to Bulgaria which allows the reduction of costs while delivering uncompromised quality.
