Adorama a supplier of photographic and consumer electronics products, is now offering the “Flashpoint All-Inclusive DSLR/DV Cinema Bundle”—which prevents stray light from striking the front of a lens and which increases focus precision—separately from Flashpoint’s DSLR Shoulder Rig II.
Prior to being offered alone, the Flashpoint Cinema Bundle was available as part of Flashpoint’s DSLR Shoulder Rig II, according to Adorama. Made up of three Flashpoint components, the All-Inclusive DSLR/DV Cinema Bundle offers equipment that filmmakers need, the company says. The bundle includes:
- Flashpoint’s Matte Box System II
- The Follow Focus Pro II
- The DSLR shoulder rig with rails and quick release
In addition, Flashpoint’s Matte Box System II features a hinged, fold-flat flag system and can be angled to prevent stray light from striking the front of the lens, which can cause both image-fogging flare and unwanted artifacts, Adorama says.
The Flashpoint Follow Focus Pro II quickly attaches to the rig and connects via a geared system to the lens’s focusing ring, the company says.
The foundation of the All-Inclusive DSLR/DV Cinema Bundle is the DSLR shoulder rig with rails and quick release, the firm says It can be used both for shoulder-mounted run-and-gun shooting or tripod-mounted video capturing, and it features a dual 15-millimeter carbon fiber rod system, a pair of hand grips and a molded shoulder pad. Altogether, the shoulder rig has an effective length of just over 30 inches including the end plugs, Adorama says.
