Manfrotto MVA514W Sympla Lens Support
The Brilliant New SYMPLA Camera support system from Manfrotto, Manfrotto's SYMPLA's Camera Body Support and Lens Support help create a more stable, vibration-free platform for shooting. Filming with long telephoto lenses on HDSLR cameras or camcorders means using the lens L-bracket as the connection between camera and rig, which creates a less than ideal weight distribution and means that the slightest movement or touch of the camera or lens (such as pressing ''''Rec'''', or focusing the lens) produces visible camera shake and vibration that has to be edited or removed in post-production. The body and lens supports are vertically adjustable to rest firmly against the camera body and lens to damp and eliminate vibration, and to make your whole rig more stable and secure. both supports are rubber-coated to protect camera equipment. The SYMPLA Lens Support has a rubber-coated V-profile element that can be raised until it rests solidly against the lens in order to stop it from vibrating when the lens L-bracket is being used to connect the camera to SYMPLA. A repositionable ratchet locking lever blocks height adjustment. To cover greater height ranges, an additional SYMPLA V-Offset can be used with the Lens Support.
SYMPLA is a professional modular video rig system that extends and complements new cameras, allows for stable support and framing, supports essential accessories features, offering versatility and high performance as well as comfort, safety and much simpler and faster set up than existing rigs.
SYMPLA is built for flexibility and speed, so you can change anything and everything easily and quickly: hand grip positions, counterbalance, camera body, lens, accessories, filters, light-shielding angle; shoulder-supported, hand-held, or tripod/monopod-mounted… whatever you need to get the shot, the second you need it.
SYMPLA is quick to fine-tune, so even when you need to make changes to your rig on-location and mid-shoot, SYMPLA’s minimal locks and tool-free adjusters will let you get back to shooting quickly.
Thanks to our revolutionary camera remotes which fit the rig handgrips, SYMPLA allows precise fingertip control of framing and camera functions without losing the grip position and keeping your eyes on the frame, helping you capture stable, usable, creative footage. And SYMPLA can quickly be extended: whether you start from one of our kits, or from single components, you can build the exact rig you need for the shot, as soon as you need it.
