SmallRig Releases New Vlogging Tripod Plus Smaller V-Mount Batteries

Video gear accessory company SmallRig has been real busy of late, announcing a series of new video production tools that includes a flexible vlogging tripod with wireless remote control, video handgrips for DJI RS Series gimbals, a wireless microphone, and other miscellaneous tools.

The VK-19 Flexible Vlog Tripod Kit comes in three different variations and is based on an award-winning Red Dot design. The kit comes with flexible legs to wrap around rods larger than 1” in diameter and can also be used in a selfie configuration much like Joby’s iconic design. It has a load capacity of 4.4 pounds.

The HandGrips created for the DJI RS series gimbals include a wireless remote control handgrip with joystick control to support centering/locking, video control, mode switching, and more. The grip supports the DJI RS2 and RS3 Pro.

There’s also a Wireless Control Sling Handgrip for the DJI RS 2 and RS 3 Pro, DJI RS Series Gimbals, Control Handgrip for DJI RS 2 and RS 3 Pro, Sling Handgrip for DJI RS 2 and RS 3 Pro, Wireless Control Handheld Ring for DJI RS 2 and RS 3 Pro, and Wireless Control Dual Handgrip for DJI RS 2 and RS 3 Pro.

The grips have a 100-meter range, with less than 50 milliseconds delay. They also have 10-hour all-day battery life.

Meanwhile, the Shoe Mounted Wind Muff for the built-in microphones on the Nikon Z30 provides protection against wind, as well as a quick-release baseplate and cage. The baseplate is an Arca type with quick-release heads and features ARRI 3/8”-16 holes and an Arca type dovetail.

SmallRig’s V-Mount batteries have been designed to be about 30% more compact than normal V-Mount batteries, making them lighter and more portable. The VB50 and VB99 offer 65W of power, with a USB-C connector, BMS chips for fast charging, and adaptive voltage boost. The VB155 has a larger capacity and 155W of power. A built-in OLED display indicates battery status while in use or when charging.

The Forevala W60 Wireless microphone offers 2.4Ghz wireless audio transmission with DSP for noise and sound processing. It can support smartphones, cameras, action cameras, stabilizers, and tablets, and has an eight-hour battery life and a range of 33 feet.

Other new products include a modular lightweight matte box, 95mm VND, several filter trays, side flags, a cage for the RED V-Raptor, and SSD enclosures. There’s also a power supply base for DJI RS Stabilizers and a long-life RGB Video Light called the RM120 “Juicy Bank.”.

The Raptor V cage is a modular design with a top handle, 15mm rod support, detachable NATO top plate, and 1/4-20, 3/8-16 threaded holes, and ARRI Rosettes. That’s a ton of new tools for content creators to take advantage of!
