Product Highlights
  • Hand-held Professional Camera Support
  • Adjustable Camera Platform Height
  • SP Shoulder Rig
  • Detachable Telescopic Support Arm
  • 15mm Rod System

The Shape Spider 1 is a hand-held professional camera support device with an adjustable camera platform height (2-1/2" to 3-3/4") below the shoulder tip. Featuring the SP shoulder rig, Hand5 Quick Handle, and the Pad1 Back Pad, the Spider 1 secures the camera firmly, even with accessories, for mobile applications.

The Shoulder Rig is a core component of the camera support that easily adjusts to fit any body type. It uses a standard 1/4"-20 camera screw to attach the camera on the shoulder rig, and positions the camera with the help of a knob, which is accessible through a 3" slot on the camera platform. It also features a detachable telescopic support arm which can be positioned to fit any body type.

A 15mm rod system extends the reach of the Spider 1, and when not in use it can be removed using a 4mm hexagonal key. Using a quick-release plate (not included) that can be attached below, you can attach the Spider 1 to any standard tripod. Made of aluminum, the shoulder rig is solid and durable and holds your camera securely. The rig is powder-coat finished with a professional looking wrinkle finish.

Featuring 2 handles that can rotate individually (360°), the Hand5 Quick Handle, with a simple push of a button allows moving the arms, and releasing it secures the handles firmly in place. Weighing only 0.35 lb, the detachable back pad can be positioned easily (up and down by 1-1/4" (3cm) and left and right on 360°), and adds stability and comfort to the shoulder rig.

    Comments about SHAPE SPIDER 1:

    This is almost an excellent rig except for one design element - the hand tightening nut that locks the shoulder rest to the base. It doesn't seem to lock down enough for me. I'm thinking maybe there is a way to outfit with a bolt that can be more secure. Other than that, it has a very solid feel on the shoulder, and the handles work really well. I also have other Shape products that mount on to this rig very well. Overall, for the price point, it's a nice clean simple design which I prefer over the many other designs for DSLR rigs on the market.

        Comments about SHAPE SPIDER 1:

        The Spider 1 is a great addition to my Sony HDR-AX2000. When shooting a commercial, I'm often in a "run and gun" mode, following the talent through the store. The Spider is a perfect addition to the AX2000. Very well made, not cumbersome, love the adjustable handles. Provides a stable and comfortable platform for lighter HD cameras. Plus locations front and between the handles to add the wireless mic receiver to the unit. Just wish I'd bought this with the camera.

        Great Little Shoulder Rig

        Pros

        • Does not Chafe
        • Strong Construction
        • Well Padded

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Comfort
          • Supporting Camera

          Comments about SHAPE SPIDER 1:

          This is a great little rig that supports my Sony HDR-FX7 and it's accessories. It feels solid, and fits my fat shoulder just right. The handles are beefy although it would have been nicer if they accomodated my Varizoom zoom controller. With some modification, I got it to mount perfectly. The shoulder pad is comfortable and does not dig into my shoulder and there are plenty of mounting holes to secure my camera to the platform. Mounting the tripod quick release plate to the bottom of the rig is convenient too. Overall, this shoulder rig looks and feels high quality.
