Wooden Push-Button Top Handle

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.

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.
