Manfrotto's SYMPLA Camera Body Support
& Lens Support
help create a more stable, vibration-free platform for shooting. Filming with long telephoto lenses on HDSLR cameras or
Camcorders means using the lens L-bracket as the connection between camera & rig, which creates a less than ideal weight distribution & means that
the slightest movement or touch of the camera or lens (such as pressing '''Rec''', or focusing the lens) produces visible camera shake & vibration
that has to be edited or removed in post-production. The body & lens supports are vertically adjustable to rest firmly against the camera body
& lens to damp & eliminate vibration, & to make your whole rig more stable. Both supports are rubber-coated to protect camera equipment.
The SYMPLA Lens Support has a rubber-coated V-profile element that can be raised until it rests solidly against the lens in order to stop it from vibrating
when the lens L-bracket is being used to connect the camera to SYMPLA. A repositionable ratchet locking lever blocks height adjustment. To
cover greater height ranges, an additional SYMPLA V-Offset can be used with the Lens Support.
