The Full Shoulder Rig V2 from JAG35 is a shoulder-mount camera support rig with dual hand grips and dual shoulder rails. The design of this rig places the camera squarely in front of the operator's face--ideal if you use your camera's built-in monitor when shooting video. The dual shoulder rails provide plenty of room for mounting a variety of accessories. The rig features all aluminum construction and is based on industry-standard 15mm support rods systems. With dual handles, a full two-rod counterweight system, and the camera directly in front of your face, the Full Shoulder Rig V2 is a very steady rig. A tall Balanced Top handle is included with this rig, so you're able to capture low-to-the-ground shots easily. The Full Shoulder Rig V2 can be assembled in a variety of different configurations and can be expanded with optional accessories to suit your needs.
Active Stability Control
With the camera pressed against the face, plus two wide and sturdy handles, and a full two-rod counterweight system the Full Shoulder Rig is extremely steady. The operator literally becomes "one" with the camera and operation becomes intuitive.
The two-rod rear section provides ample room to attach a variety of accessories, and loading up the rear section with goodies only helps improve the balance of the rig. The front section remains uncluttered so you can focus on easy follow focus operation, quick lens changes, and camera operation. The tall Balanced Top handle is included with the Full Shoulder so you can capture those low to the ground shots with ease.
The full shoulder was designed to be easily upgraded, customized or rearranged to fit any job camera operators throw at it. The rail blocks are made to easily and smoothy tightened and have now been designed to work even smoother with rods of any brand. All this versatility is to give users options when looking for a rig. Need less handles? easily remove one. Need to add another handle or rearrange the handles you have? Go ahead! The Full Shoulder has an endless amount of configurations to fit your needs.
All components have been upgraded in the Full Shoulder Rig V2. Manufacturing and machining improvements have resulted in a smoother surface, allowing for a better fit with rods of any brand. All knobs are now machined to get a tighter, stronger grip on the rods, for the most rigid and durable rig possible. Many of the rail-blocks (for example the one attached to the shoulder pad) no longer require two knobs for tightening during assembly. A single knob system makes assembly and disassembly quick and efficient, and also easier on your fingers.
