The PAPARAZZI is a lightweight video/photo handle that provides far greater shability when shooting video.
Taking the conceptual ideas behind the original PAPARAZZI I, the PAPARAZZI II handle is double the size, and perpendicular to the camera (instead of parallel to the camera). The benefit is even greater stability (two hands are better than one), and the possibility of adding more accessories.
Unlike the PAPARAZZI II PRO, the PAPARAZZI II is NOT equipped with the 15MM ROD SYSTEM which allows the used of advanced video accessories like matte boxes, 35mm lens adapter and follow focus mechanisms.
PAPARAZZI II key features:
- The handle is large and comfortable. The handle has various threaded holes (1/4-20, 3/8-16 and 1/2-13). The threaded holes are located on the sides of the handle, on top of the handle and below the handle. These threaded holes are used to attach any accessory you may need: audio recorders, LED lights, spot lights, LCD screens, remote controls, microphones, grips, padded handles, etc.
- The PAPARAZZI II is highly adaptable. You can attach it on top of all of camera supports. Your camera is raised so the view finder and the LCD screen are positioned nearer to your eyes level. And you still have the advantages of attaching accessories to the double handle!
- The PAPARAZZI II can even be attached to a tripod head using a quick release plate (not included). The quick release plate is simply attached below the PAPARAZZI II PRO.
- The PAPARAZZI II is CNC machined and made of lightweight aluminum. It is rock solid and will securely hold your camera.
Note: To attach accessories to the PAPARAZZI II handle, adaptors such as the Manfrotto 118 short spigot may be required. These adaptors are not included and must be purchased separately.
