YouTube member TheJoeDigital shares a video review with a look at some of the new designs from the Lanparte DSLR rigs. The video above shows the Follow Focus with two hard stops, a new clever swing open cage design, and variable position handles with geared locks. They also make Matte Boxes and other accessories.
I picked up one of the shoulder pads a while back to replace the not-so-comfy Gini silicone pad on one of my rigs. As seen in the video above from Vimeo member brandpartners, the shoulder pad from Lanparte I picked up has a much more contoured soft pad and rails on top to mount other accessories or a V-Mount battery pinch solution (which they also make). The V-mount battery dock provides various voltage out to power different accessories, but also includes an HDMI splitter to send video to a second monitor. You can check out more of their gear following the link (here).

Lanparte Hard Stop Follow Focus Review » CheesyCam
does the marking disk on the follow focus work better with a wax marker or a dry erase marker?
What about focusing and choosing better f-stops on your lens mister Frank?
@Austin M - You can see here the same FF with adjustable stops, but it doesn't look like the indicator is adjustable. ::https://www.ebay.com/itm/Follow-Focus-w-Hard-Stops-15mm-rods-DigiFF2-Lanparte-USA-Dealer
what about the version with no hard stops? https://www.lanparte.com/En/ProductView.asp?SID=48&ID=55
is the focus marker adjustable? it seems so but not sure. also, is it worth it to get the hard stop version? im using a canon 60d
@Frank Suero...so the offer for better pricing what does that require???
I'm seriously considering the Lanparte system for my rig however I am interested in doing an in-depth review as the brief overview is enough to "wet One's whistle" I think such a system deserves a more closer look.
Yep, very nice and typically, out of my price range.
looks great...but acting like the big name boys and robbing us on the highway...
it would have to be, You are talking Zacuto pricing right there on ebay from the links. Looks decent.
Guys we can offer you if interested better price for lanparte rigs. Just contact us.
Mister Joe really should stop using really that often, it's really bugging me. Otherwise it seems to be a really nice rig.
Looks great, definitely want one!
