The Complete Kit features all of the above items, plus a matte box and follow focus unit. My only concern with a lot of these rigs for smaller cameras like the FS5 is that you are turning them into an awfully large setups – which kind of defeats the point of getting a small camera in the first place.

Luckily, for those who want to make a smaller rig a lot of these individual parts, such as the FS5 extension arm can be bought separately. For more information on the kits head over to the Lanparte webpage. The Complete Kit is available for £1,367.58 ($1800 US). The Basic Kit is available for £676.10 ($890 US).
