All doors and locks are fully usable when the camera is in the cage and its intelligent design allows you to operate the camera without having to remove the cable doors.

Wooden Push-Button Top Handle
The ergonomic and easily removable SHAPE Top Handle was designed to provide the required space for mounting your Audio Unit. It offers a comfortable and secure wooden grip for carrying your camera and securing accessories. It also features the SHAPE Push-Button Technology, enabling you to balance the weight and rotate the handle in the position you need for a 360-degree axis. SHAPE is well known for its patented Push-button handle, now used by so many professionals in the industry. The technology was developed to give filmmakers 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 locked.
This nicely crafted Push-Button Top Handle provides multiple mounting options, including ARRI Standard 3/8″-16 anti-rotating hole patterns on the top, SHAPE Standard 1/4″-20 anti-rotating hole patterns on the top and side, cold shoe mounts, and a 3/8″-16 UNC threaded hole at the front. The SHAPE Rod Clamp at the front (15CTH) can be added, allowing you to directly mount a 15 mm rod onto the handle. Made of CNC Aluminum, the 15 mm LW Clamp (15CTH) can be easily attached to the top Handle. The clamp is designed to support a 15 mm rod such as the SHAPE REVOLT EVF Mount Bracket. The ratchet knob clamp lets you adjust and strongly fix the position of the 15 mm rod to the SHAPE Top Handle and (2) cold shoe mounts, one at the front of the handle and one at the back.
Use the compact SHAPE Follow Focus Kit with Single 15 mm Rod Clamp with your camera setup to make focus pulling easy. The modular design allows you to add and remove any of the components without screws or tools, and its small profile allows the addition of a matte box or accessories around your lens. At the core of the kit is a rubber, anti-slip follow focus wheels attached to a single aluminum 15 mm rod clamp. The clamp rotates to adjust to most lens sizes, and it's tightened by a locking lever. The clamp's rotation also allows the focus wheel to easily swing out of the way when changing lenses. Five drive gears are included to fit a variety of lens sizes: 0.5 MOD/78T, 0.6 MOD/64T, 0.8 MOD/38T, 0.8 MOD/43T, and 0.8 MOD/78T. The gears can be flipped from front to back to facilitate different lens configurations. A 49 mm rubber friction wheel is also included for the 0.5 MOD/78T gear which is most commonly used with DSLR lenses. For alternate fine-focus configurations, use the included speed crank or 11" whip, both of which attach to the center point of the knob. Four magnetic marking disks are included to attach to the focus wheel.
At the center of the knob, an ARRI-standard accessory port for attaching separately available accessories such as a whip or a speed crank;
All gears can be flipped to the front or back position which is helpful for compact lens configurations;
Two rotation points (one on the rod and one on the body) allowing you to get the follow focus perfectly aligned vertically on the side of the camera body;
Swing Arm Design allows you to simply pull the follow focus away from the lens for a quick lens change then you can push it back into place when you're ready;
A compact design takes little space, so you can still attach a matte box to the front;
Use the swing arm to properly align the follow focus and then you can tighten the thumbscrew on the bottom to keep it in place.
A silicone matte box mounted on a CNC aluminum main frame with an outer diameter of up to 124 mm. It provides a wide field of view for a variety of wide-angle lenses.
Two 4x5.6 filter trays (one rotary) with easy access handles that allow one-handed filter changes. 4x4 filters can also be installed in the trays. The frame includes two stops at the bottom of the filter trays section to prevent the filters from falling through. The removable swing-away module makes lens changes a snap. A spring pin helps to lock the mechanism closed without manually setting the pin. 2 magnets hold it in place when closed.
Removable height adjustable rod block with one tightening knob allows micro-adjustment of height, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of lenses. The rod block can be re-installed directly on the main frame for a straight configuration. The complete kit allows three different configurations, (swing-away, straight and clip-on).
Removable light carbon fiber french flag can be attached to the top to prevent flares. A series of adapter rings are included in the kit:
