Aspiring filmmakers and independent videographers alike should be more than happy to know that the budget filmmaking gear maker Edelkrone recently unveiled another exciting product. Their brand new second generation Monitor/EVF Holder is compatible with most field monitors and EVFs available on the market, plus it can be attached to virtually any camera shoe mount or ports with 1/4″-20 screws which make it extremely versatile and flexible tool. With the provided instant adjustment, users will no longer need to loosen or tighten any screws while tilting up or down the Monitor/EVF Holder. According to Edlekrone, you can simply move your field monitor, and it stays exactly where you leave it.
Furthermore, the latest Edelkrone Monitor/EVF Holder comes with extra shoe mount on its side to accommodate additional accessories such as a LED light, a microphone, a wireless receiver or any other accessory that uses a shoe mount connection. You can attach even more accessories to the unit due to the available 1/4″-20 port under the monitor plate. Just make sure that your gear is less than3.3 lb (1.5kg) and you’re good to go.
Due to the flexible design, the second generation Monitor/EVF Holder allows users to place their field monitor in multiple positions around the camera. Depending on the type of accessories you are using, you can put your monitor or EVF on the side or the top, in front or the back of your camera. Moreover, you will always have a plenty of room to attach the cables without blocking their ports, thus building a neat camera setup for more comfortable and efficient shooting on set.
In case you need a complete rig solution, you can always use the Edelkrone’s Pocket Rig in conjunction with the Monitor/EVF Holder as both units are fully compatible. Regarding pricing and availability, the second generation Monitor/EVF Holder is expected to hit shelves towards the end of August with a retail price of $149.99. As always, you’ll get the best bang for your buck just as with the most Edelkrone’s products that are already well-known for the excellent user experience and efficiency they provide on set.
