            Comments about SHAPE Paparazzi I Handle:

            I got this primarily for low to the ground hand held shots with DSLR/BMC rigs. I have the Shape Composite rig and this works well with that. It helps with just carrying around the rig as well, which can get heavy with follow focus, shade, monitor, etc and It will also allow me to attach other monitors lights etc with it's insane number of holes of all sizes.
            The only neg is that it is solid aluminum and actually pretty heavy. As we all try to figure out what video cameras are, especially in the DSLR arena, it seems that lighter should be better. This would have been just as strong if made out of carbon fiber.
            Shape makes great stuff though.

              Very well made. Solid. Has a ton of 1/4 20 holes and other mounting options for monitors or other accessories that you might want to put on your rig. I use this with the other Shape composite system components. Mounted easily to my existing paparazzi riser. And I'm still able to use the back rods to mount the shoulder support, even though the Shape team told me it might not fit.
