Both the cage and the top handle are threaded with multiple 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 screw mounts for full flexibility in mounting accessories like EVF, monitor, lights, mics, etc. The bottom of the cage has screw mounts for attaching a tripod plate and is designed with a pocket for camera ventilation. The shoulder pad is comfortable and removable with a single red knob for fast and easy adjustment. It also slides on any 15 mm lightweight system.
The SHAPE Quick handle rod bloc (HAND5) is a professional video stabilization accessory with 2 camera handle grips, each providing an individual rotation angle of 360°. You can attach the handle to the camera platform using a simple screw knob. A simple Push-Button located at the articulation allows easy attachment and removal. Combined with the anodized aluminum rod bloc, the quick handle offers composite camera support for all 15 mm rods. You can achieve precise positioning by sliding the Quick Handle along the rods and tightening the small red knob located on the Rod Bloc. The rod bloc is designed with 2 screw-threaded holes allowing the mounting of the Quick Handle.
SHAPE is well known for its patented Push-button handle, now used by so many professionals in the industry. The technology was developped to give filmakers quick and easy adjustment. By simply pressing the button, you are allowed a 360-degree rotation to place the handle or top handle in the best position for your use. Push, adjust, release, and then its lock.
The SHAPE mini composite shoulder pad (SHPAD3) is padded for superior comfort and is made of slip-free material. It is designed with a 15 mm rod block on top allowing to hold 15 mm rods for camera and accessories to be attached. The screw knob allows to attach SHAPE counter-weight (PAD1, PADCW1). By adding extra male-female rods at the back, you can also attach a counter-weight behind the same rods. This way, your body can easily supports the weight of the camera and its accessories. The shoulder pad is also the perfect solution for switching rapidly from shoulder to tripod without having to remove the shoulder pad. It can remain on the camera rig permanently.
