Our professional level content creation tool kit is for filmmakers, actors, creatives of all kinds who are ready to invest in professional photography and videography tools. The Pro kit allows you to shoot either with your Smartphone or DSLR Camera on location or in studio with confidence and stability. This leveled up kit allows you to feel confident that the quality of your projects will match any Hollywood budget.
The kit includes:
- All-Weather Camera Gear Backpack
- Benro Slim Travel Tripod
- SmallRig Smartphone Cage
- Saramonic Vmic Mini Directional Condenser Microphone
- TRS/TRS TRS/TRRS Cables Included (so you can use this with either DSLR or Smartphones -- you just need a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. If you have an iPhone 7 or above be sure to purchase separate lightning to headphone dongle here).
- Benro 3XS Lite Smartphone Gimbal
- SmartMic mobile condenser microphone for Gimbal and TRRS audio cable
- Mini-Tripod Base for Benro Gimbal
This ultimate kit delivers an 'all in one' solution for the DIY filmmaker, actor, or multi-hyphenate to start telling their stories in a professional way. This kit includes an ultra compact gimbal that turns your Smartphone into a steadicam! The 3XS Lite Gimbal brings a stabilized, cinematic look and a high production value to your shoots. The included Smartmic plugs right into the handle of the 3XS Lite and so you can continue to capture broadcast-quality sound when shooting with your gimbal!
By combining the ultra-compact and lightweight SmartMic with the folding design of the Benro 3XS Lite gimbal, you can take your high-quality content capturing rig with you anywhere that you go.
The 3XS Lite also comes with a free companion app which allows you to calibrate your 3XS Lite, adjust parameters, update the firmware, create perfect panoramas, or shoot a beautiful time-lapse with dynamic motion. It even includes an automatic face and object tracking option so you can focus on the action while leaving the filming up to the gimbal!
The underside of the Benro 3XS Lite handle has a ¼"-20 threaded hole for mounting the stabilizer to the included mini tripod base or your included full size Benro Slim Travel Tripod. This allows you to use the 3XS Lite handsfree during Panorama or Motion time-lapse modes, as well as during Object or Face Tracking modes.
PORTABILITY AND SECURITY
The WMM Smartphone Studio Pro Kit was created for filmmakers by filmmakers with the goal of putting the power of content creation in the hands of those who are creating the art. Creativity is often spontaneous so being able to set up on the go with a low profile is important. The included Benro Tourist Backpack allows you to keep all of your valuable devices in 1 easily accessible place.
Padded and Secure.
Foam modular inserts to fit any array.
Waist strap and top handle.
Pockets on the outside stretch and secure tripods, mics stands, cables, etc.
Fits easily under aircraft or bus seat.
Main pocket opens from the back of the bag keeping your items secure against you.
Another benefit to this pro kit is the Benro Slim Travel Tripod. A lightweight aluminum tripod that features a slim profile shoulder allowing for the tripod legs to be more compact when folded. Easily strapped in and perfectly fitted to the side pocket of the Benro Tourist Backpack
With a maximum weight capacity of 8.8 lbs. this tripod is ideal for Smartphone devices.
The Slim tripod legs feature anodized aluminum twist locks in 3 positions that only require a quick half turn to lock and unlock. The center column can be reversed for low to the ground shots or separated from the legs to be used as a selfie stick or monopod! A weight hook is located underneath the center column for windy conditions -- a perfect place to hang your Benro Tourist Backpack!
Staying level is made easy with included bubble levels on the tripod shoulder and on the quick release clamp. The removable single action ball head has an oversized ratchet style lock knob for easy operation and a panoramic scale. The ball head includes a blue anodized aluminum Arca-Swiss style quick release plate with a D-ring 1/4"-20 camera screw. As an added bonus, it also converts to a monopod for those times when room (or setup time!) is at a minimum.
The SmallRig Universal Mobile Phone Cage is a pro setup compatible with any smartphone with a width from 63mm to 86mm. It features a spring-loaded clamp for quick attach/detach of the phone with a greater locking force. The cage comes with multiple 1/4”-20 threaded holes and two cold shoes for attaching multiple accessories like a LED light, microphone, etc. Threaded holes on the top could be used to attach a top handle (not included) and the 1/4”-20 thread holes with notches could be used to mount a power bank (not included) when a sustainable charging solution is required.
When not using your gimbal, we've included the Saramonic Vmic Mini Shotgun Microphone to ensure you're always capturing broadcast quality audio along with HD video. Its ultra-compact size allows the mic to be placed in areas that larger shogun/pencil condenser mics just won't fit. If you're shooting outside, remember to place the included double thick foam windscreen over the mic before shooting. This will protect your mic from wind and weather. The box includes both the TRS/TRS & TRS/TRRS Cables so you can use this compact microphone with either your DSLR camera or your smartphone (remember, the lightning to headphone jack dongle is not included in this kit. This dongle will be necessary to plug the TRS/TRRS cable into your Apple iPhone. For Android phones without a headphone jack you will need a USB-C to headphone jack adapter. )
Every aspect of the Vmic Mini’s design is top notch, and the built-in locking camera shoe features a metal 1/4 20 tripod thread at the base that gives you near limitless mounting options.
