The Letus35 MCS ActionCam Bundle for Nikon D800 With Basic Matte Box is a minimal, lightweight camera rig providing you with high functionality and ease of movement. This camera rig was designed to be as compact and nimble as possible for use in tight spaces and for action photography.
The camera interface plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and is the mounting platform for attaching your camera to the quick release base of the cage. Included with the Action Cam bundle is the short plate, which is designed to only extend the length of the cage and does not provide support for a rear stabilizer. It is also machined from high-grade aluminum and anodized for additional strength.
The included Letus Basic Matte Box includes the matte box and a 15mm rod clamp--the matte box can hold two 4x5.65 filters at an angle or three 4x5.65 filters straight. A rail mount is also included for mounting the matte box to 15mm support rods (not included). It also has a marking window to mark polarizer positions for easy repeatability. The matte box is made from CNC-machined high-grade aluminum and extremely durable polymers.
The camera cage, to which everything else is attached, is CNC-milled aluminum and hard anodized for durability. The cage design incorporates numerous 1/4-20" and 3/8-16" sockets around the entire cage for a large variety of accessory mounting options.
Other accessories included with the bundle are a dovetail, a quick release clamp, a clamp-to-rod adapter, a handle, and a pair of 6" (15.4 cm) black rods. These pieces work together in establishing a strong camera rig system that provides a multitude of mounting options for accessories and other tools.
