Manfrotto MVA517W Sympla Universal Mount
The Brilliant New SYMPLA Camera support system from Manfrotto, The multi-purpose Universal Mount is a self-hanging clamp that slides along SYMPLA rails and locks in position with a single locking lever. The Universal Mount is the basic structural element for numerous SYMPLA components (the Flexible Mattebox, Shoulder Pad, V-Offset, Body and Lens Supports and Adjustable handles all attach to SYMPLA Rods via Universal Mounts) and it can also support external accessories. This makes SYMPLA an easy and intuitive system to use and adjust, because once you know how to adjust a universal Mount, you can adjust all the components built around it too. It has an ''''open hook'''' design, which allows it to be inserted and hung on the SYMPLA rails from below, with one hand, even between other elements that have already been positioned. Because it's self supporting even when unlocked, it stays safely attached to the rails at all times. A single, repositionable locking lever conveniently blocks the Universal Mount solidly against both rails with one movement. The Universal Mount is extremely versatile, thanks to its industry standard 4 x 3/8” female threads and 2 x 1/4” female threads, which can be used to attach arms, adaptors and other components and accessories to a SYMPLA rig.
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.
