Whether you want to go handheld, shoulder-mounted, or smooth sliding with your DSLR or mirrorless camera, the Sirui VSK-5 Video Survival Kit will let you get the shot your way in a compact carry-on kit. All the included components fit in the included backpack for easy travel, and you only need to bring what you're going to use for filming. Each of the following three configurations can be constructed with a minimum of downtime, saving time during your shoot:
The shoulder rig uses the 15mm rods, shoulder pad, handles, baseplate, and the offset bracket to form a steady handheld platform. The handles can be rotated for comfortable positioning and have padding for extra grip.
Use the shorter rods, the baseplate and handles from the shoulder rig, along with the top handle for a compact cage. The cage is useful for low shots and run-and-gun guerilla-style handheld shooting where quick movement is important.
Lastly the dolly, 15mm rods, and slider end blocks combine to form a smooth sliding platform for adding visual flare to your production. The rubber wheels are silent, and the tension can be adjusted to ensure that your tracking shots are consistent, even with lighter cameras.
