The Telescopic Support Arm with Rod Bloc from SHAPE is a variable length support arm designed to stabilize a shoulder rig while keeping the user mobile. The unit consists of an aluminum telescopic arm, Rod Bloc, and multi-function shoe which can be independently adjusted to the user’s preference. It can be adjusted at two points, from a minimum length of 14″ to a maximum of 20″. The top end of the rod is capped by an adjustable single-knob joint which supports and positions the CNC machined aluminum Rod Bloc—the attachment points for a shoulder-mounted rig. At the arm’s base is an internal spring designed to provide added control when tilting vertically, allowing the user to capture a more stable image while in motion. The bottom end of the telescopic arm is fitted with SHAPE’s multi-function shoe—a cup-style base designed to rest against the user’s torso or in a support belt for additional stability. If needed, the shoe may be removed so that the arm may be used as a boom, providing a connection point for a monitor, microphone, light, and more. The support cup at the end of the arm rests on the SHAPE Belt rather than directly on the operator.
The SHAPE adjustable shoulder pad is padded for superior comfort and is made of slip-free material. 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 and it is designed with a 15 mm sliding rod block camera screw knob (1/4-20) for adjustment.
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.
