This rugged, sophisticated video rig gives you total control over your DSLR or camcorder at a more reasonable price than comparable products. It features a shoulder brace and two handle grips that bring improved steadiness to your camera, eliminating the distracting picture-jiggle caused by handheld shooting and also allowing smoother, more precise camera movement.
The Flashpoint DSLR Movie Bundle features a fully-adjustable, lever-locking design that allows you to change both your camera's distance from your eye and its lateral position, and also to modify the placement and angle of the handles,among many other things. In addition to providing more comfortable operation, this reduces the arm and shoulder fatigue caused by extended shooting.
What's more, the Flashpoint DSLR Movie Bundle has a very large, smooth-turning knob that operates a geared, finely-calibrated focusing system linked directly to the lens's focusing ring. This allows you to adjust the focus-and to follow-focus moving subjects-without having to touch the lens itself. Unlike competing rigs at or around this price, the Movie Bundle incorporates adjustableset screws in its follow-focus mechanism, meaning you can control the focus moreprecisely within a specific distance range. This Adorama-exclusive rig even includes a matte box that features adjustable French flags surrounding the lens opening, to keep unwanted, image-degrading light from striking the lens's surface.
