        Comments about SHAPE Lens Support:

        I bought this component to go along with Shape's CAGE for the BMPCC. Highly recommended when using any longer lens. Save your mount from unnecessary strain! Professionally-machined parts and very easy to use.

            This thing works perfectly. Stabilizes the lens, nicely tucked out of the way, and like all SHAPE gear, is beautifully made and easy to use.

                Comments about SHAPE Lens Support:

                High quality machining. Tight tolerances and well made. My only complaints are the sharp edges on the piece that actually supports the lens. No edges are rounded over on that piece and the corner edges are sharp. I took a fine file to all the sides so now I have now worries about it cutting into my bag or fingers. The downside is now the aluminum is exposed and all the edges are shiny. it just makes it look well used so it's not much of an issue to me... Still though. One more small bit of machining or hand buffing before anodizing would have been appropriate. The bottom piece that locks onto the rails is nicely machined with all edges rounded over... High quality lock knobs and construction overall. A good addition to any DSLR rig. I use it along with a Canon 70-200 f4 on Redrock Carbon Fiber rods and It made a large difference in cutting down vibrations during panning and using follow focus. A little more work on the finishing and I would have given 5 stars..

                  I spent good money on other lens support and they would arrive in the mail and be junk. This product is far from those. Well built, great design and works wonders. Perfect for my DSLR rig. The only thing missing is a little rubber padding to go between the support and the lens. I used a piece of furry side velcro
