The Lanparte Shoulder-Mount Combo Rig Kit with ABS Protection Case provides you with a 15mm-rod shoulder-mount solution for DSLRs and compact camcorders and a custom case to hold and protect the rig components. The rig is built around a 15mm rod bridge plate and a C-shaped support arm. A pair of 11.8″ 15mm rods support an included follow focus and 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.
Your camera attaches to the bridge plate via a 1/4″-20 or 3/8″-16 screw. It offers 1.6″ of height adjustment and features a quick-release camera plate for easy removal of your camera from the rig. The C-shaped support arm is also height adjustable and can swing open to the side when changing lenses. It mounts onto the rods included with the bridge plate and provides additional 15mm rod clamps at the top for adding an included top handle via a pair of 7.8″ rods. In addition to the top handle, rods on top of the rig are useful for adding accessories such as the included Magic Arm for mounting an EVF or monitor.
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.
