The Lanparte Starter DSLR Camera Rig Kit is a 15mm-rod shoulder-mount solution for DSLRs or mirrorless cameras and comes complete with a clamp-on follow focus and a height-adjustable bridge plate. The bridge plate includes a pair of 11.8″ 15mm rods to support the follow focus and a Universal Grip V2, which is an adjustable dual handle system that lets you position each rubberized handgrip at the desired height, angle, and distance from the rods. To complete the shoulder-mounted rig, a shoulder support with 7.9″ 15mm rods is included, which attaches to the rear of the rig using a height riser clamp. This lets you position the camera slightly above or slightly below the level of the shoulder pad.
Both the Universal Grip V2 and follow focus utilize a clamping design that lets you attach them to the 15mm rods without having to remove other optional rod-mounted accessories, such as a matte box. The follow focus features integrated A and B hard stops that let you set start/end points on DSLR lenses with continuously rotating focus rings. The follow focus features a 0.8 pitch drive gear, which can be positioned on either side of the gear box. For use with DSLR lenses that lack an integrated focus gear rings, an adjustable gear ring comes included.
