This B&H Kit bundles items needed to put together a smartphone audio & video production rig.

Magnus VT-350 Video Tripod with Fluid Head
The Magnus VT-350 Video Tripod with Fluid Head is a lightweight and portable tripod system for shooting stable videos with DSLRs, small camcorders, and any other cameras up to 15 lb. It is suitable for use for event and wedding coverage.
A built-in fluid effect video head features fixed fluid drag, which provides smooth pans and tilts with 360° pan rotation and approximately 175° of tilt. Independent pan and tilt locks tighten and increase resistance until locking the axis for fixed position/lock-off shots. The quick release plate features a 1/4"-20 camera mounting screw, a spring-loaded locating pin, and a retro-looking anti-skid mounting surface.
The unit features a center column that you raise and lower using a crank arm. The center column extends up to one foot, providing a maximum height of 82" with the column extended. A mid-level spreader keeps the legs steady when you adjust the tripod, and it locks to keep the legs secure once you've set the tripod in position. Both the center column and spreader are integrated.
The four-section tripod legs are linked by the mid-level spreader, which slides up the center column when you collapse or expand the legs. The legs are individually extendable using flip-locks for quick and easy adjustment to each leg's three stages. The legs feature rounded foot spikes with replaceable rubber feet, which provide grip on hard or slippery surfaces. You can remove the rubber spike covers and use the rounded foot spikes on soft surfaces, such as earth or the beach. An integrated bubble level allows you to level the tripod. A carry case with a shoulder strap is included and will let you conveniently carry the tripod over your shoulder when you're traveling about.

Beastgrip Pro Smartphone Lens Adapter and Camera Rig System
Improve your smartphone videography with the Beastgrip Pro Smartphone Lens Adapter and Camera Rig System. This ergonomic rig grips onto your smartphone and provides a 37mm threaded lens/filter mount, a cold shoe, and five 1/4"-20 standard threaded holes for an (optional) tripod and other accessories. It is compatible with most smartphones, with or without protective cases, and allows easy access to ports and buttons. The modular rig can be used fully intact or simply as a tripod mount by removing extraneous components.
Beastgrip DOF Adapter MK2
Bring the bokeh, depth of field, focus pulling, and film-like style of full-frame SLR and DSLR cinema lenses to your smartphone's camera using the DOF Adapter MK2 from Beastgrip. Their updated version of this adapter incorporates a patent-pending system with a rotating barrel and locking mechanism to frame the focusing screen, while also aligning the bayonet mount and SLR/DSLR lens in the correct orientation so that lens measurements may be properly seen, as on a professional camera.
Beastgrip's DOF Adapter MK2 features a native Canon EF lens mount, although other lenses, such as Nikon F, PL, Pentax K, M42, and Olympus OM mounts may be used with the appropriate adapter. Additionally, any lenses must have a manual aperture control. The DOF Adapter MK2 is not compatible with lenses that require an electronic connection to a camera body, such as the Canon STM series. Mirrorless and/or Micro Four Thirds lenses are not compatible with the DOF MK2.
Please be aware that the DOF MK2 Adapter displays your image upside down. To correct this, Beastgrip recommends using a third-party app to flip the image back to its normal orientation while shooting. Compatible apps include FiLMiC Pro, Filmakr, MAVIS, ProMovie Recorder, MoviePro, Guerrilla Filmmaker, ProCamera, and Open Camera. It is also possible to use this adapter with your phone's native camera app and the image displayed upside down.
Included are top and bottom lens caps, a microfiber cleaning cloth, and a microfiber carrying pouch. Protection is provided by a limited 1-year warranty against manufacturing and workmanship defects, which is valid from with the shipping date.

Red locking levers secure and tighten all the components. The BeastRail is also compatible with the original Beastgrip and Beastgrip Pro (with included arm upgrade) smartphone cage systems to complete your rig.

Rode NTG2 Shotgun Microphone
Capture quality sound indoors or outside for your next indie film, TV shoot, or documentary project with the Rode NTG2 shotgun microphone. With low handling noise, the ability to endure loud sound sources before distortion, and support for battery or phantom power, the NTG2 offers a versatile, cost-effective solution for recording clean dialogue and sound effects.
The NTG2's elevated sensitivity allows it to produce strong output levels without having to apply extreme gain at your mic preamp. Sonically, the NTG2 delivers consistently clear sound due in part to its gentle rise in high frequencies and its rumble-reducing selectable low-cut filter. The durable and lightweight high-grade aluminum housing is finished in hard-wearing epoxy paint to withstand the stress of location recording.
