Serving the UK market
Kondor Blue is a camera accessories brand that’s based in the greater Los Angeles area of the US. The company was formed in 2019 by the film director and cinematographer Lukas Colombo.
Lukas Colombo, CEO of Kondor Blue, commented, ‘The UK has been one of our most requested markets since our foundation in 2019. We are excited to partner with one of the best in the industry, Holdan, to make Kondor Blue’s growing line of products more accessible to filmmakers and enthusiasts in the region.’

The roots of Kondor Blue
In late 2018, Colombo was working on a project with fellow filmmaker Vincent Laforet, with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K camera. He realised only one D-Tap cable existed to power the Blackmagic 4K camera and it had a price tag of over $80. This, and similar experiences by Colombo and his colleagues, was a driving force behind the design and development of the Kondor Blue brand.
Colombo explained, ‘With Kondor Blue, I envisioned a company that could not only solve the frustrations that I had with equipment manufacturers but also pioneer innovation to empower creators around the globe, making the art of storytelling more efficient and accessible. I’m a big fan of Grant Petty’s (CEO of Blackmagic Design) philosophy and how he has revolutionised the camera market and democratised high-end filmmaking.’
Kondor Blue has said its mission is, ‘to design high-quality production accessories with the filmmaker in mind, standing behind those products with a lifetime warranty, exceptional customer service and fair pricing.’
