Make your shooting experience more comfortable and intuitive with the Composite DSLR Stabilizer from Shape. Providing a shoulder-mounted platform for DSLR/mirrorless and video cameras, users will have access to an adjustable and customizable rig for added stability and functionality. The system is designed around the Paparazzi Riser with 15mm rod system, which combines two pairs of rods to create an easily set up rig. Adding to the setup is a Quick Handle with rod bloc as well as a telescopic support arm with rod bloc to minimize fatigue over long shooting periods. For added comfort, an offset rail bloc will provide space for a separate monitor or viewfinder, and there are both an adjustable composite shoulder pad and a back pad.

Off-Set Rail Block - 2.875"
The SHAPE wlb Off-Set Rail Block - 2.875" is a lightweight anodized aluminum piece that, in congress with a second identical piece, horizontally offsets a pair of standard 15mm rods and Rod Blocks from a SHAPE wlb Paparazzi Riser. The offsetting facilitates the creation of a shoulder-mounted rig in which the shoulder mount assembly is horizontally offset from the camera. The camera is mounted on the riser and centered near the operator's eye.
The Off-Set Rail Blocks can be positioned so the rods assembly is set off either to the left or the right of the riser. One Off-Set Rail Block is attached to the front of the Paparazzi Riser, via two screw-threaded holes. A second Off-Set Rail Block is attached in identical fashion to the rear of the Paparazzi Riser. The other end of each of the two Off-Set Rail Blocks has a slot that's 2.875 in (7.3 cm) long. The slot allows screws to attach it in various horizontal positions to the Rod Block, which hosts the standard 15mm rods.
Note: Only one Off-Set Rail Block is included.
Adjustable Composite Shoulder Pad
The SHAPE Adjustable Composite Shoulder Pad is a core component of SHAPE's Composite series of camera supports. The pad rests on the camera operator's shoulder to transfer the weight of the camera and any accessories closer to the core of the body. The lightweight aluminum shoulder pad is padded for comfort.
Attached to the front of the pad, the included Sliding Rod Block enables the adjustment – up to 2.75 in (7.0 cm) – that allows the operator to set a pair of 15mm rods and at the proper vertical level.
The Adjustable Composite Shoulder Pad is compatible with several other camera rig components from SHAPE and, because it accepts standard 15mm rods, other manufacturers as well. You can attach a counterweight to the back of the shoulder pad to provide more support for the camera rig. The shoulder pad is recommended for camera rigs up to 15 lb (6.8 kg) if you're supporting it with dual rods or up to 7.5 lb (3.4 kg) if you're using a single rod, so it's perfect for heavy DSLR setups and lighter HD video camera rigs.
The Shape Back Pad is a professional video accessory that weighs 0.35 lb (0.160 kg) and offers augmented camera support stability and comfort. Padded on one side, the pad is attached to the shoulder rig via a screw knob.
You can adjust the positioning of the Back Pad in accordance to your body type with a vertical adjustment range of 1-1/4" and a horizontal adjustment spanning 360°. A screw knob allows easy attachment and removal of the back pad from the support. With a 1/4-20 threaded hole, the Back Pad supports attachment of the Shape Box and other accessories.
The Back Pad is compatible with all Shape camera supports except the Mountain series.
