Seriously Strong.
The V Series DSLR Rig is built from Ultra light Aircraft grade 6061 aluminum with a T6 treatment. The matte black hard anodized (type III) components limits unwanted glares and light reflections. It also adds superior surface strength for increased lifespan under professional use.

It’s In The Details.
All V Series Rigs are designed with high precision CAD while rigorously tested for quality, performance, and durability at the highest standards. V Series DSLR Rig parts are produced using the latest CNC technology for the highest precision and accuracy.

Limitless possibilities. With tons of options to choose from you can use this rig fully decked out, trim it down to just a cage, or even use it as a quick run and gun shooter. You can always pick up additional accessories to add it to your arsenal. We love infinite possibilities.

Interlocking Frame.
The integrated Interlocking Frame design allows you to add different joints to different parts of the rig more securely. It “nests” joints to eliminate slipping/twisting and builds a stronger joint compared to using just screws that lock into place.

Get a Grip.
The shock absorbing Grip Handles that come standard with the V Series R8 DSLR Rig are not only beautiful, but they’re really damn comfortable. The weatherproof handles gives you the most secure grip in all weather conditions. It works well under freezing cold conditions, or hot and sunny environments. The rubber grip won’t make your hands freeze and won’t slip while you’re sweating. It works with standard 15mm clamps so you can customize your rig to just about any configuration. You can use the grips as side handles for a rig setup, cage setup, and even a top handle to get lower shots.

Fully Adjustable Shoulder Pad
The 3 sectional shoulder skeleton is specially designed to adjust and conform to your shoulder for maximum comfort. The detachable shoulder pad is made from a high grade canvas which is machine washable and extremely durable.

Fotga DP500 IIS Quick Release Follow Focus with A/B Hard Stop + Lens Gear

Follow Focus
Every detail of this follow focus has been considered during the design process to create the best follow focus on the market. Compact enough for matte boxes and packed with smart features makes the Follow Focus a filmmakers dream. CNC machined from high grade aluminum. Solid, smooth, compact, and smart.

Zero Backlash
2 Levels of adjustable dampening for fluid movement and very little backlash. Virtually Zero (<0.5mm).

Dual Rail Quick Release/Lock
The 15mm Dual Rail Quick Release and Lock provides a better foundation for follow focus units compared to single rail clamp systems which tend to slip and move. The double rail spring-loaded system provides ample amount of resistance against the lens gear for even tension. The best part about the Quick Release feature is that you don’t’ have to take apart your rig in order to adjust or remove the follow focus. Simply release, lock, and go.

A/B Hard Stops
The fully adjustable and locking A/B hard stops allow you to quickly mark your points without distracting you from the scene. The A/B hard stops give you the freedom to move from focus to focus. When used with the magnetic marking disk it can save you tons of time while setting up shots.

Easy Gear Reversal
Both left and right handed users can easily reverse sides by unscrewing the gear knob, and simply putting both the gear and knob on the other side. Voila, done. No tools necessary.

Compact Design
The ultra compact design allows you to use the Follow Focus with just about any matte box. Most bulky follow focuses tend to get in the way due to either large gear boxes, clamps or dials.

Magnetic Marking Disk
The dry-erase polyurethane marking disk is fastened by super strong magnets, and also locks in place so it does not move around. You’ll know where your focus points are every time.

360º Adjustable Marking Pin
The marking pin is can be rotated and locked 360º around the center wheel. This allows you to be able to precisely mark your in and out points whether your looking down on the unit or from behind the camera.

X-Axis Adjusting
