The Canon C100 C300 C500 EVF Shoulder Mount from SHAPE is a shoulder rig with light weight support (LWS) for the Canon Cinema EOS line of movie cameras. As the three have a similar profile, this rig is compatible with the C100, C300, and C500 models. The base plate features specially recessed rods to accommodate the these cameras' uniquely tall stature while ensuring proper centering of lenses in case a matte box is used. It also features the Paparazzi Handle and a mount for EVFs (electronic view finders).
The system includes 15mm rods that feature the standard LWS spacing of 60mm. Because rod-based accessories are standardized you can use virtually any 15mm accessories for LWS you want with this rig. Types of accessories include, follow focuses, matte boxes, mounts for external audio and video recorders, EVFs, battery plates, cages, and more. The included rods are 12" in length and can be extended if needed.
Handles and a shoulder pad allow you to use the Canon C100 C300 C500 Shoulder Mount on a tripod or hand-held. The handles feature rosettes and spring-loaded push-buttons so that the angle can be adjusted on the fly without having to loosen a screw. Both the hand grips and the shoulder pad clamp onto the rods using a single red knob that ratchets in case you can't turn it a full circle. Extension rods can be added behind the shoulder pad for attaching weights, battery plates, or other accessories intended to behind the camera, or to help balance the load.
The Paparazzi Handle resembles a scorpion tail, and not only provides a secure point of contact for carrying the camera, it also allows you to mount various accessories, such as outboard recorders and field monitors about the camera. In addition, the EFV Mount allows you to relocate the LCD screen for the Canon C300 and C500 or mount a third-party EVF. If features two 1/4"-20 screws as well as a shoe adapter.
