Easyrig Vario 5 (cameras 5-17kg)

The popular Easyrig Vario 5 supports cameras between 5 and 17kg and spreads the weight onto the operator's body using a a body harness, especially useful with today’s configurable and modular camera systems. 

For larger Alexa/EPIC-based handheld rigs which are 15kg and more, consider the Easyrig Vario 5 Strong instead which can support camera kits of up to 13-25kg.

Easyrig Vario 5 Long arm (for MOVI/Ronin Gimbals)

A VMI-modified Easyrig Cinema 3 system with Vario 5 (payload capacity up to 5-17kg) with a long arm (+230mm), to suit the MOVI/Ronin Gimbals and similar units, to push toe support further away from the operator.  Note that the position of the support can be brought sufficient close to do the same job as the regular Vario 5 system.

The system includes a normal Easyrig Cinema 3 harness, though care has to be taken when using gimbals when walking, since the vertical oscillation can have a pronounced effect on the shot compared with the shorter arm systems.  If being used for walking shots, it may be more suitable to use the Easyrig Vario 5 with the Serene system, though this is a lighter more versatile system, though it can still cope with a 5-17kg payload (30-55lb).
