Designed for shooting professional-quality video with HD DSLRs and video camcorders, our full-scale modular rig sets a new standard for features and price. The Flashpoint HD Video Pro Supreme is supplied with several components that are ordinarily sold as separate, costly accessories, yet which are needed for full functionality. These include an adjustable, padded shoulder mount; double, soft-rubber hand grips; and fine follow-focus knob and gearing, all essential for handheld shooting with a unit of this size and weight. In fact, you will ordinarily pay at least twice as much to configure the same outfit withother systems.
The Flashpoint HD Video Pro Supreme's follow-focus knob and mechanism (ordinarily sold separately as the Flashpoint Follow Focus Pro) features hard stops for precise, continuous focus adjustments. Its shoulder mount has a fold-up rear extension that can support counterweights or a battery pack. Its swing-away matte box incorporates side flaps for extra light and flare control, usually a deluxe feature. Dual filter slots accept industry-standard glass filters, such as important neutral density types, while a sliding, adjustable DSLR/camcorder baseplate and tripod mount leave all shooting options open.
This exceptional, feature-rich DSLR video rig is built around complete, industry-standard 15mm rod configurations that require no additions. This sophisticated system allows versatile positioning of key parts. Why pay more to get into DSLR video when just about everything you need is packed into the Flashpoint HD Video Pro Supreme?
