The Shape Cameleon II Camera Support consists of the CA Shoulder Rig, Arm1 Telescopic Support Arm, Hand6 Quick Handle, and Pad1 Back Pad. It is designed to be used on either shoulder. The camera support is also compatible with most video and DSLR cameras with a standard 1/4-20 threaded socket.

When worn, the camera platform (and the base of the camera) is placed 0.75" (1.9cm) above the tip of the shoulder. This rig is manufactured from lightweight aluminum and is powder coated with a wrinkle finish. The shoulder pad is cushioned for comfort.

The CA Shoulder Rig can be adjusted to fit your needs and body type. All modifications can be done using knobs on the device, and you can arrange the camera and attach it to the rig using a standard 1/4-20 screw. This knob can be reached through a 3" (7.5 cm) opening on the camera platform. The angle that the camera is pointing at can also be adjusted. Using a knob, you can adjust the Back Pad or even remove it when not required. The Shoulder Rig features a Telescopic Support Arm that can be extended or retracted to fit your body type, and can be removed when not needed. It can also be attached to a tripod head via an optional quick-release plate that can be attached underneath the camera platform.

You can achieve augmented stability and versatility for the camera support using the Arm1 Telescopic Support Arm, a Manfrotto 233B Camera Mount Bracket with a 4" cup provides large surface contact area. You can extend the Telescopic Support Arm from a length of 14-20". Rotation of 360° along both vertical and horizontal axes is possible via the rotating arm. You can place the cup on a stable surface such as your waist, hip, thigh, or a nearby wall, or on the ground.

Positioned on either side of the shoulder that the rig is worn on, the Hand6 Quick Handle consists of 2 handles. Each handle is ergonomically designed and can be rotated 360°, offering a firm grip. The handles are equipped with buttons which when pressed allow the handle to be rotated, and when released hold the handle tightly in place.

The Pad1 Back Pad adds stability to the rig, and can be separated from the rig by means of a screw knob. It can easily be adjusted to suit your body type, and adjusts upwards and downwards through a distance of 0.25-1" (3cm) and through 360° from left to right. The Back Pad features a 1/4-20 threaded hole that can be used to attach the optional Shape Box or another compatible accessory. It weighs 0.35 lb (0.160 kg).
