Removable top handle
The SHAPE removable top handle is made of CNC Machined Aluminum and genuine Canadian maple wood to give you a solid and comfortable grip on your camera. It features our patented Push-Button technology for fast adjustment. It's easy to strongly attach the top handle to the camera cage with the cold shoe attachment system. The top handle features the following mounting options to strongly attach more camera accessories: (1) EVF mount, (15) ¼-20 threaded holes with stoppers and (2) cold shoe brackets at the front and back of the 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.
Quick release baseplate, adjustable rod bloc system
The quick release baseplate can be used as a table stand or can be attached to a tripod. The bottom of the base block designed with a removable Metabones® Support Bracket perfect to support heavier lens. The rod bloc travel height is adjustable with an Allan Key to allow an optimal adjustment of your matte box, Follow Focus and optical center. A rod clamps allowing you to use available rod mounted accessories.
This pair of SHAPE 15 mm Aluminum Rods (10") connect into your camera rig, extend it, and let you add various SHAPE and third-party accessories compatible with 15 mm rods. With these two rods and with a few fundamental accessories, you can most certainly even begin building your own rig from scratch. The rods are each 15 mm in diameter, 10 inches long, hollow, non-threaded, and made of reliable aluminum coated with a clear finish.
The SHAPE 2-Stage 4 x 4" Matte Box accepts lenses with up to a 105 mm front outside diameter. The main frame made of carbon fiber. It mounts to 15 mm LWS rods and utilizes a swing-away design, which lets you perform quick lens changes without having to remove the matte box from your rods. You can adjust the height of the matte box in relation to the rods, which comes in handy when your lens center to rod center height is slightly off from the standard. Two rotating filter stages support the use of 4x4" filters. The matte box comes with a top flag (eyebrow), side flags, six matte box donuts in 65, 77, 85, 88, 100 and 105 mm sizes, and (1) elastic donut. The matte box also has a rear opening of 100 mm for lenses.
The included anti-reflection donuts prevent light behind the camera from reflecting off any filters in the matte box and degrading the image. Included with the matte box are anti-reflection donuts for lenses with a front outside diameter of 65, 77, 85, 88, 100, 105 mm. The included elastic donut supports lenses with a front outside diameter between 65 and 105 mm, and it is especially useful with lenses that grow and shrink as you change focus or zoom. The side flags incorporate a hook design as a safety feature where they attach to the matte box. This helps prevent them from falling out of the matte box should the lockdown thumbscrew loosen accidentally. The swing-away bracket incorporates a height adjustment, enabling you to compensate a total of 0.65" vertically. This allows you to use this matte box with a variety of camera/rod support combinations that may vary slightly from the industry standard 85 mm distance from LWS rod center to lens port center.
The SHAPE Friction & Gear Follow-Focus Clic with Adjustable Marker is made of lightweight anodized CNC aluminum for strength and durability. It is designed to attach onto standard 15 mm rods of shoulder support rigs and other rigs. It attaches onto them via a clamp system, with simplicity. You would sit the Clic on top of the rods, and then slide and close a SHAPE-patented lever clamp underneath the rods, and the lever locks and holds the Clic securely on the rods.
The Clic's focus mechanism also works with a clamp system, which when unlocked loosens the focus mechanism and allows it to be moved horizontally. It moves so to adjust itself closer to the lens. As it moves, its main feature -- the focus disk -- moves with it, and the focus disk is what reaches the lens. The focus disk can either be a friction wheel or a gear wheel. Both are present in this package and replacing one with the other is accomplished with the help of the included Allen wrench. The friction wheel has a rubber outer surface that would press up against the lens, keep firm contact with it, and ensure accurate and slip-free focusing. The friction wheel would serve well for most lenses and is made of high-quality rubber that in cold temperatures won't get too cold to lose its grip. The gear wheel would accommodate those lenses that specifically have teeth on their focusing rings, and it would do so without any ring gears, by pressing its 0.8 pitch gears into the teeth.
The focus mechanism can be used on either the left or the right side of the lens, depending on the direction you place the Clic onto the rods in. And the focus disk itself can be used either in front of the focus mechanism or behind it, so to accommodate a wider variety of lens lengths. To move the disk to the rear, you would first just unscrew two screws from the gearbox. Once the screws are off, the focus disk can just be flipped over for use with longer lens constructions. The white mark disk at the right of the red knob is made of highly resistant Delrin thermoplastic. It can be written on with non-permanent markers to mark up focus measurements for various predetermined shots, and it is interchangeable and thereby many predetermined measurements can be kept ready at your side. Additionally, a slide-adjustable marker made of aluminum is included to be attached beside the mark disk and to be moved and tightened into positions along the disk.
The SHAPE 0.8 Pitch Aluminum Gear for Follow Focus Friction and Gear Clic can be used with geared, cine lenses and 0.8 lens gears. It is compatible with the SHAPE Lens Gear Kit (0.8 Pitch) and is included with all Follow Focus Friction and Gear Clic (FFCLIC) follow focuses. The gear is constructed from aluminum for strength and durability.
