Letus Direct has released their hand held rigs into the wild. The basic shoulder rig is going to set you back around twelve hundred bucks, so it’s not cheap but they make so very nice equipment. The cage I got to mess around with for a few days was rock solid. I suspect the hand held rigs will be of the same quality. Here is a rip from their site.
“High end DSLR accessories available for order from Letus. Above is our Letus Hawk carbon fiber viewfinder with the Talon K2 micro rod support system. The view finder can be left attached to the camera plate or the main support rod base. A great quick release solution from going from video to stills. This is only a small sample of the complete line of DSLR gear that we will be releasing. Prices start at only $375 USD. For more information, be sure to follow @letusdirect on Twitter, join us on FaceBook and visit the product information pages in the menu at the top of this page.”
Seeing Double Barrel.
Planet 5D is reporting a new sponsor and new gear from Letus. It seems like they are charging into the HDSLR gear game now that DOF adapters are going the way of the horse and buggy. I can’t help but say that when I saw the post it felt like I had seen all this gear somewhere before. It looks like the manufactures are staring to catch a grove with some of this stuff. Check out this rip from the Letus Direct web site.
“A full line of DSLR accessories are now available from Letus. Our Letus Hawk carbon fiber viewfinder with our Talon micro rod support systems are available for pre-order. The view finder can be left attached to the camera plate or the main support rod base. A great quick release solution from going from video to stills. We will be providing the highest quality possible without the insane price tag. Prices start at only $385 USD.”
They also have a cage that looks very familiar. Letus also released a cool line of carbon fiber view finders with quick release base plates. This stuff looks familiar too. Choice is always a good thing. Thanks to Planet 5D for posting this.
