595B Fig Rig Camera Stabilizing System
Item #: MANF595B
List Price: $319.99

The Manfrotto Fig Rig camera-stabilizing system was the brainchild of film director Mike Figgis, who employed the idea on many of his award-winning films. Non-traditional in design, simple and effective, the Fig Rig is the only modular system in the world to smoothly support the DV camera while acting as a frame to mount the necessary accessories including zoom controllers, mics, mixers, lights, monitors, arms and more.

Essentially a circular frame with crossbar mount for most mini DV cameras, the Fig Rig becomes another body part to produce smooth, steady traveling shots. As the operator walks, their muscles and tendons absorb all the shocks, transferring only fluid movements to the camera. With no straps or harnesses attached to the Fig Rig, quick and wide movements can be made within the same shot from ground-level to overhead, all in one smooth movement. The camera, accessories and operator become one, allowing for quick and unobtrusive filming, allowing for flexibility and expanded creativity.

In addition to being a steady support, the Fig Rig is a frame on which to build your video system. Your camera has only one hot-shoe for accessories, limiting you to one light or one monitor. With the Fig Rig, you can mount a number of vital accessories for today's cameras. With the use of the optional 595CLA clamp, you can convert the Fig Rig frame into a fully-loaded roving cine rig precisely positioning your mic or monitor anywhere around your camera. Add on a Manfrotto 521 series remote control and now you have complete fingertip control of zoom and focus. Customize the Fig Rig to your liking.

Features:
  • Hand Pads - For a comfortable and secure grip even in the most extreme environments.
  • Cable Clip - Supplied with 4 cable clips to keep all your wires wrapped cleanly around the rig and out of your shot.
  • Crossbar - The camera bar is threaded with one 1/4"-20, 3/8" and 5/8" hole for additional accessory mounting.
  • Rubber Base Padding - A non-slip rubber pad provides stability when using the Fig Rig on a flat surface such as a table, floor or railing.
  • Sliding Quick Release Plate - Supplied with a 3433PL sliding QR plate allowing you to position and balance your camera. The plate system can be switched out with a variety of Manfrotto plate assemblies to best match your camera.
  • Compatible video remote controls - With Manfrotto's 521 series remote controls you can control zoom and focus (for Sony and Canon). With the Fig Rig you have complete control of your camera without ever removing your hands from the Rig.
