The Lanparte Professional DSLR Kit V2 provides you with a fully loaded 15mm rod support rig for DSLR and mirrorless cameras. The rig is built around a 15mm rod V-lock bridge plate and a large C-shaped support frame, with a pair of 14.4″ long rods provided to support an included follow focus and matte box. For shoulder-mounted configurations, the kit comes with an adjustable dual handgrip system, a padded shoulder support, and a 7″ HDMI monitor for framing and focusing your shots. The monitor is mounted to the top of the rig using an adjustable Magic Arm EVF/monitor mount. Rounding out the kit is a 150Wh V-mount lithium-ion battery and a V-mount power adapter plate. When not in use, key components of the rig can be safely stored inside a hard protection case with custom pre-cut foam interior.
Your camera attaches to the bridge plate via a 1/4″-20 or 3/8″-16 screw. The bridge plate offers 1.6″ of height adjustment and features a quick-release camera plate for easy removal of your camera from the rig. At the bottom of the bridge plate is a V-lock for mounting onto V-lock tripod adapter plates, or for attaching the v-lock shoulder support directly behind the camera. There are also 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 threaded holes for direct attachment to tripod heads. The C-shaped support frame mounts onto the rods included with the bridge plate, providing 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 accessory mounting threads and 15mm rod clamps at the top for adding an included top handle. In addition to the top handle, rods on top of the rig are useful for attaching the Magic Arm when you want to use the 7″ HDMI monitor.
The included matte box fits lenses with a maximum front outer diameter of 150mm. It features two rotating 4 x 5.65″ filter stages, filter tray inserts for compatibility with 4×4″ filters, and a swing-away design for rapid lens changes. Removable top and side flags are included to block unwanted light from hitting your lens. Other accessories that mount in front of the camera are the Universal Grip V2 and follow focus, which both utilize a clamping design that lets you attach them to the 15mm rods without having to remove the 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 gearbox. For use with DSLR lenses that lack an integrated focus gear rings, an adjustable gear ring comes included. A lens support is also included when using long and heavy telephoto lens.
The V-mount battery adapter plate can be mounted on 15mm rods or directly on top of the shoulder support (when the shoulder support isn’t mounted behind the bridge plate). It features a V-mount for attaching the included 150Wh lithium-ion battery and provides DC outputs with different voltages (5, 7.2, 12, and 15V). The battery can be recharged using the AC power adapter included with the Battery Pinch. To power a Canon 5D, 7D, 60D or other select Canon DSLRs from the adapter plate, an LP-E6 dummy battery is included. Additionally, the Battery Pinch has a built-in HDMI splitter. A 25″ HDMI to mini HDMI with right-angle connector cable is provided for sending your camera output to the splitter input, and 39″ and 59″ HDMI cables are provided for outputting the signal to two different devices from the splitter.
