The new P&C Swiss Rod adds simple mounting solutions for DSLR accessories onto your standard 15mm DSLR Video rigs. It is not designed to replace all of your 15mm rails, but with just one Swiss Rod clamped to your rig, you have 20 different mounting options to choose from. You can attach an accessory directly or for more flexibiltiy add a friction arm, quick release, or cold shoe adapter to the Swiss Rod. The Swiss Rods have both male and female threaded ends so they can be extended. Threads are standard and I have attached them directly to Gini rails and even the Letus DSLR cage.
International buyers will be able to purchase from our partner retailers on Amazon and eBay. For USA, the new P&C Swiss Rods are now available on the PhotographyandCinema.com website (Click here).

@ajd - You can stack two together.
i was looking for longer swiss rods, to build a cage for a dslr w/ grip w/ manfrotto 577 QR system. i noticed that the "swiss" part of it is locked into the 15mm rod with holes/hex nuts. will you be offering longer rails? or would i have to retrofit it?
@Emm - done - thanks
@Clarke - I don't handle anything with products. Shipping, receiving, returns, etc. You can contact them through the website.
@Emm ... And what is the turnaround for an order placed before 3pm EST? Does it ship that day?
@Clarke - In the product descriptions it states FREE SHiPPING for USA lower 48 states.
Could you tell me the shipping costs and when this order would ship if I place it today or tomorrow for :

Are you running a free shipping special?
Great design, great function, great concept. Can't wait for the cage.
Do these PC rods connect to the Extreme Gini 17 despite the 15, 17 disparity?
@Brad - Some of those parts are from Gini httpss://cheesycam.com/the-gini-rig-arrives-from-korea/
Hi. I just wondered where can i buy that shoulder pad rig with that offset connector thing? thank you.
Thanks a lot!
@arturo - I might have received mine from a flash kit, dslr cage kit, or something. They are pretty generic and can be found online like this: https://www.ebay.com/sch/Cameras-Photo-/625/i.html?_sop=15&_from=R40&_nkw=cold+shoe+adapter
one question: where did you buy the hot shoe that appears at the video?
Quick Tips from HDSLRNOW » CheesyCam
@Tristan - P&C has to find retailers to carry this for shipping internationally then most likely it will be from eBay.
@ Emm, when is it going to be available for us in Canada?
2 received... packaging intact - no complaints. Highly recommended if you are in need of additional mounting options.
@Emm Just received 2 Swiss Rods. Quality and built of this thing is amazing. Well made. Perfect. Only draw back. Package was already open when I got it. One of the rod has slight paint damage but doesn't affect the function. Screws where there thankfully. Poor packaging.
By the way, I don't have anything to mount these Rods too.... Why? i have a project coming up and has nothing to do with DSLR, but still photography.
...ORDERED!! hope it gets here before this weekends convention...totally interested to add this to my "targetshooter-striker"
@Paul H - Yes that's probably the next thing to be announced. There's one more part being manufactured to complete the cage, but most of it is already complete.
Emm, weren't you guys going to be coming out with a cage at some point in the future?
@DigitalCyclops - Most of the cage is done. One more part is being made and that should be next for release.
@Habez - Try using the [contact seller] from the listing and see if they can customize your order. Once the weight hits a certain amount, shipping + tracking info is expensive.
Actually, make that like 230 singapore dollars. o.O Emm, can't they make the rod included in other packages like with the pico flex or i dunno.. Bundled with a friction arm?
Like, why can they ship single friction arms but not the rod 🙁
omg. im paying like 200 bucks for 4 rods. o.O (inserts disappointed face)
Emm, what is the rough ETA on the P&C Cage? I'm sorta holding out getting the "Cheesy Sticks" until that is out. I'd like to re-rig my rig into a cage style w EVF.
Keep up the great designs!
@Nikita Pavlov - Yeah, for small items it doesn't make sense when the shipping is more than the product itself. The only way to make it worthwhile is by bundling several items.
Wow. Can't believe it's expensive to ship one stick.
@Habez - Sorry, looks like shipping with tracking info is very expensive. In order to make it worthwhile a minimum of 4pcs need to be ordered. Found here: (4pcs) P&C Swiss Rods 15mm Accessory Rail
@JSS - Shipping seems to be more expensive than the Rod itself. The only way to make it worth it is to bundle several items together to make it worth the shipping fees. You can find it on eBay: (4pcs) P&C Swiss Rods 15mm Accessory Rail
@MN - That's from a Skier, but you can find the same from many other companies including Gini.
@Luke - I don't think you can rethread the Swiss Rod.
What's the brand baseplate/rails combo you got going on in your video there?
How long does general shipping within the USA? I am in Utah.
This is one of the most brilliant designs I have seen in a long time. I am psyched to check it out. I can see hundreds of ways to rig these. Both on camera and off with a car rig we have set up with 15mm rods.
props to everyone involved in designing the Swiss Rods
Are they aluminum? Curious if I'd be able to rethread the end.
@Greg - You won't see it, because all items from PhotographyandCinema.com are FREE SHIPPING in the USA. Enjoy.
How much is shipping within the US? It won't let me see w/o checking out.
@debaser - It's on the way to some sellers who can handle international shipping. Should be available by Monday.
@Tony - The 15mm ends should fit the clamps. They are standard 15mm also.
I need at least one too (international buyer.. boring!) hopefully they wont charge too much for shipping.. :S Well, we can only hope.. lol
I hope they don't sell out before they make it available on ebay.
Will the Swissy fit the Link Delight rail on sale recently?
Hi, thanks for your answer.
Some really good magic arm like the 7" Manfrotto Hydrostatic Arm use the 3/8 mount and that kind of adapter is not what he need. Is true that in the DSLR world not many accessories use it but in the digital cinema world (Alexa, RED, etc.) the 3/8 is very common and useful and i think that some 3/8 threaded hole would be handy. but for now i think i can live with this nice and original Swiss rod! 😉
Where can i buy your great groduct with international shipping?
Cool, will be ordering one tonight! These look super convenient!
@debaser - Nobody said it was hard to do, but there are adapters that step up a 1/4 to 3/8. I know you mention it's not the same, but I use those step up adapters for mounting fluid heads to sliders all the time. That same 3/8" adapter should be able to hold a simple accessory, and i'm not even sure how many accessories require a 3/8" mount. Here's the type of adapters if anyone is looking for these
@Luke - i'd be very interested to know what size the rods on the pocket rig are. i contacted them a while ago and they told me their threads are "not standard with the rods out there", which is not encouraging. i want to get a pocket rig for travel purposes, but only if it's compatible with standard accessories like the swiss rod, and i can extend to fit a ff on long lenses like 70-200 2.8.
Why didn't you add some 3/8 holes? can't be that hard. For me that's a big let down. It's not the same with adapters.
Nice product anyway.
@Luke - The threading is designed to fit most standards including Letus and Gini which should be 1/2 x 13. Not sure about Edelkrone.
What's the threading? I wonder if it could replace the one of the rods on my Pocket Rig from Edelkrone?
