The Dot Line Kamerar HDSLR v14 Rig is a handheld shoulder rig featuring a removable tripod-mount camera mounting plate and long handles that will keep your arms lower and thus less inclined to fatigue. The camera plate has a 1/4" thread underneath it for attaching onto a tripod. The handles, the plate and the pad all come together by attachment to 15mm rods -- the handles and plate to a pair of 10" long rods and the pad to a pair of 6" long rods that connect into the camera plate. All three components are adjustable on the rods. The handles can adjust sideways, the pad horizontally, and the plate horizontally and also vertically, all at the loosening of respective thumbscrews and/or screws. Alternative to connecting into the camera plate by way of the 6" rods, the pad can also be mounted a bit to side via an included offset bracket, with the purpose of positioning the remainder of the rig in front of your eye so you can see the camera's LCD directly in front of you.
The handles have 1/4" and 3/8" threads running along them for various accessories, like lights and monitors, to be mounted into; the pad can be used as a shoulder rest pad or flipped into a vertical position and used as a chest rest pad, in which case you would keep it pressed up against your chest area; and the camera plate is suited best for DSLR cameras, as it's not long enough to effectively support bigger cameras and it has a protective component on its front to prevent attaching bigger cameras, and the entire rig itself is not a long one and so may not be as useful for bigger cameras. As for attaching a camera the size of a RED Scarlet -- possible, but such cameras require many large accompanying accessories, like batteries, and the rig simply isn't big enough to afford space for such accessories, as the rig is designed for DSLRs.
