The Digital Juice Sharpshooter is a versatile, shoulder-mount, camera rig which is lightweight, compact, and easily configurable. It is designed to provide stability to your camera, so that you can achieve smooth focus pulls and prevent unwanted light from hitting your camera lens. It is a solution for everyone from the serious hobbyist to the documentary shooter who has little time for extensive set-ups.
The rig is comprised of three main components; the gear-driven, reversible, Digital Juice standard follow focus which can be mounted to the left or right of the camera lens; a lightweight, height-adjustable, standard matte box with adjustable flags; 15mm rods and camera baseplate support with 1/4"-20 tie-down, 2 padded front grips; and a curved, gun-stock type, shoulder support.
The Digital Juice standard follow focus is an accessory for any DSLR camera setup, allowing for quick and accurate focusing with minimal lens shake. It mounts to industry standard 15mm rods and is compatible with a wide variety of lenses, cameras, and shoulder rigs.
The standard follow focus has a switchable lens gear to accommodate long and short lenses. It comes with a lens gear belt and has a marking disc so that you can get repeatable, accurate focus pulls. Adjusting and mounting the follow focus is achieved using a single knob located at the bottom of the unit to position it along the rods to assure the optimal position along the lens barrel.
The 12-piece set can be configured to suit your needs. There are multiple industry standard 1/4"-20 threaded attachment points, allowing you can secure the unit to a tripod or attach other accessories like an articulating arm for an external monitor. You can configure the components as a simple, lightweight, shoulder rig for run-and-gun style shooting or as a compact, versatile studio rig.
