Capturing More, With Less
The Prime 41 is a high-resolution motion capture camera for use in movies, gaming development, military applications and more. The engineering and design allows the camera to capture human movement, pixel for pixel, at a third of the price of competitors.


With an expanded capacity and extended range, motion capture studios are able to capture more footage with fewer cameras; making their job easier and more affordable than ever before.

Designed for the Performer and the Technician
This camera was designed to accommodate both the performer and technician. The face of the camera was intended to be aesthetically simple and non-intimidating with clean geometric forms and unobtrusive light rings. This simple, aesthetic minimizes visual noise and distractions for the performers, especially when considering a room can be filled with 20-30 cameras.


For the technicians, the back of the camera evokes technical precision through the machined aluminum housings and exposed beam construction. The housings act as a durable protective shell while dissipating heat through the exposed rear heat sink. These cooling fins eliminate the need for internal fans keeping the product quiet and cool during use.

Finely Tuned Versatility
The camera was also designed for modularity. The housings are connected via chrome rods that can be adjusted to increase or decrease the overall length to accommodate different lenses per the technician’s preference. Finally, the back of the unit presents a single point of interaction for setup.


The technician only needs to press one button to sync the camera to the system and prepare for capture. A specially-engineered band-pass filter enables complete operation in full sunlight. With outdoor capabilities and top-of-the-line specs, the Prime 41 is one of the most versatile, yet affordable, motion capture cameras on the market.
