Lanparte PK-01 DSLR Rig & Monitor – Fully Loaded Bundle Supplied in Travel Case
The Lanparte PK-01 is a fully-loaded professional rig which utilises the 15mm rod support system. Its customisable design is suitable for DSLR cameras. The package can be mounted on tripod, or configured for shoulder and low angle shooting. The PK-01’s feature-rich spec includes an extensive collection of pro-grade accessories including a follow focus, matte-box, HDMI 7” Monitor, and V-Lock Battery and VBP-01 Battery Pinch .
The Bridge Plate (BP-02B) is a vital component of the rig as it is the contact point between your camera and the rig. It has therefore been exceptionally well engineered for sturdiness, fine adjustment and secure locking. Like all of Lanparte’s modular pieces, it is made from precision CNC aluminium, anodized in black. It clamps on to two 11.8” 15mm rail rods and the base plate is height adjustable, to lower or raise the camera lens in order to meet the level of the matte-box or follow focus. It also features a quick release plate for easy mounting or removal of your camera, and a safety lock prevents any chance of the camera fatally coming away from the rig! The base plate is threaded in order to mount the rig to a tripod.
A Height Adjustable C-Arm (CA-01) clamps to the rail rods to give you a sturdy bracket in which to add your Top Handle and 7.9” rail-rods. The Top-Handle (TH-01) enables low angle handling of the rig and the two extra rod lengths can be used to clamp extra accessories should you need to. The C-Arm can swing open in order to facilitate a lens or camera change-over, and conveniently, a detachable shoe-mount allows for greater scope of accessories such as LED panels or shotgun mics to mount to the rig.
For shoulder mounted configuration, the Adjustable Dual Handle Grip (UG-02) can be quickly clamped to the rail rods due to its quick release clamp mechanism. The handles themselves can be adjusted at 3 axis-points to attain precise configuration of angle and height. The locking joints of the handles are toothed in ‘arri rosette’ style, and clamp together extremely tightly to avoid any unwanted slippage.
The Shoulder Support (SS-01) attaches to the rail rods via a Height Riser Clamp (HRC-01). Not only does the Shoulder Support provide an ergonomic point of contact between the rig and your shoulder, but it also provides a surface to mount the supplied V-Mount Battery Pinch and V-Mount L-ion Battery, which in-turn serves as a great counter-balance weight for the rig.
The V-Mount Battery Pinch (VBP-01) has multiple DC power outlets of 5V, 7.2V, 12V, and 15V to supply power to a variety of accessories simultaneously, and an included AC power adapter also enables connection to AC power. The battery pinch also features an HDMI splitter, which splits an HDMI signal to two HDMI outputs.
Lanparte have included their highly acclaimed AB Hard Stop Follow Focus (FF-02) which offers an incredibly smooth operation and absolutely no noticeable backlash or play. It features adjustable hard stops which can be used to ensure focus is racked between two set points.The Follow Focus attaches to two 15mm rail rods via a handy quick release and also comes with a focus gear ring to ensure the follow focus meshes with the lens perfectly.
The kit includes a VB-150 150 watt hour professional V-Lock battery to keep things powered.
Another excellent feature of the PK-01 rig system is the Matte Box (MB-01) which comes with ‘french flag’ and two adjustable side wings, two filter trays for 4×4 filters (including one rotatable tray – ideal for polarising filters) and a sturdy swing away mechanism which locks away at 90° for fast and easy lens changeovers!
The 7” HDMI Monitor (Feelworld FWD-678) provides a sharp HD 800×480 feed of your camera’s display screen when connected via the supplied HDMI cable. It has a useful focus peaking feature and a ‘5d MkII mode’ which is optimised for the ever-popular camera. With Component, Composite, and HDMI inputs this Monitor is compatible with almost any video camera. It has an HDMI output and also a 3.5mm headphone jack socket for monitoring audio – as well as a built in speaker! The monitor accepts DC power directly from the previously mentioned V-Mount Battery (connected via supplied DC connector cable) or powered by batteries (NOT INCLUDED) directly to the monitor’s NP-F type battery plate.
The Magic Arm (MA-01) can extend up to 260mm and will support the monitor or any other accessory with a 1/4″ screw thread. With a central locking knob that locks all three articulation points firmly, this Magic Arm won’t let you down and will keep your professional accessories exactly where you intend them.
The entire rig system can be stored safely and securely in the Lanparte ABS Safety Case (ASC-01). Its custom cut foam inner keeps every component organised and in the same place. It features a pair of wheels and an extendable pull bar for easy transportation, as well as a top handle and two side handles for carrying.
Lastly, the PK-01 rig package comes with an LP-E6 Dummy Battery (E6-P01) suitable for 5d Mk II, 7D etc and all necessary interconnect cables, which are as follows:
Camera HDMI Cable (HDMI-65)
HDMI Cable (HDMI-90)
