The SHAPE Offset Rig for Canon EOS C200 is for handheld shooting and specifically designed to work with the C200 cinema camera. It includes one Canon C200 Baseplate, one PAD3 Mini Composite Shoulder Pad, one PAD1 Composite Shoulder Pad, one HAND5 Quick Handle with Rod Block, two each 15 mm 10″ and 12″ aluminum rods, and one Offset Bracket for Blackmagic Cage.
The SHAPE Baseplate is designed for use with the Canon C200 camera. The baseplate features three attachment points for securing your camera and tripod plate attachment via three 1/4"-20 mounting holes. Unscrewing the bottom section of the baseplate with an Allen key (included) reveals an adapter plate with several 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes, suitable for optimizing your C200 camera balance on a tripod, gimbal, or drone.
The SHAPE Quick handle rod bloc 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 in the best position for your use. Push, adjust, release, and then its lock.
The SHAPE mini composite shoulder pad 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.
The back pad (PAD1) features a powder coated anodized aluminum plate and arm which are attached to a thick padding on the side facing the user. It is compatible with the SHAPE Mini Composite Shoulder Pad (SHPAD3, SHPAD2, SHPAD1) and can be attach or remove easily from your rig via a 1/4-20 camera screw knob. Additionally, the back pad’s position can be adjusted to the user’s preference – up to 2″ vertically and 360° horizontally. The bottom of the back pad is designed with (2) 1/4-20 threaded holes, allowing to attach other accessories or counterweights.
That will depend on how you set up the C200 and if that set up makes the rig front heavy. Here is a 1.8 pound counter balance that attaches through 15mm rods: https://www.shapewlb.com/base-counterweight-rod-bloc
