Our friends over at Letus (planet5D sponsor) have announced some new HDSLR shoulder rigs you might be interested in – and they start at $1149
If you are looking for a complete shoulder mount solution for your HDSLR camera, this Letus rig is for you. This kit includes the standard Letus Talon K1 base kit and adds a complete shoulder mount configuration.
The shoulder mount setup is highly configurable for a variety of shooting styles. Rather than selling dozens of different configurations with only a few parts added here and there, we decided to include a complete system that could be added to and subtracted from in order to build a rig that best suits your needs. We provide a COMPLETE setup that you can configure how you see fit using as little or as much of the components included.
Our shoulder mount components are CNC milled from high grade aluminum and hard anodized for added durability. They feature our stainless steel 15mm rods as they will not dent and scratch like the lower end aluminum and carbon fiber rods on the market.
The Letus Talon systems feature our custom designed ratcheting thumb screws for easy adjustment. They can be tightened with a hex key for added torque.
The hand grips and shoulder mount are made from 100% silicon and are impervious to harsh weather conditions and production environments.
The Letus counter weight is milled from solid stainless steel and weighs 3lbs. The counter weight is standard 15mm on 60mm spacing and will work with any standard 15mm rods support system. The weight is also threaded with 15mm threads so you can add 15mm rods to the weight itself.
