The Element Technica Mantis Hand Held Rig is compatible with Arri, Red and ET bridge plates. It’s a hand-held rig with high customization ability, suitable for film or digital motion picture cameras. Element Technica’s lightweight hand-held system combines innovative design with exceptional workmanship and materials.
The ET Mantis is primarily designed for Arri-style bridge plates, but our Mantis system also includes a Wooden Camera base plate clamp, which allows it to be used for lighter weight camera builds and even DSLR-based systems.
