Overview
  • 1Description

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.

  • 15mm Rod Riser System

    The Shape 15mm Rod Riser System is a rod riser system used as an accessory for matteboxes, a 35mm lens adaptor, and follow focus mechanisms. It avoids additional weight on the lens by supporting the weight of these accessories.

    The 15mm Rod Riser System is made up of a PAPARAZZI riser, sliding rod block, and two 15mm aluminum rods.

  • Telescopic Support Arm with Rod Bloc

    The Telescopic Support Arm with Rod Bloc from SHAPE is a variable length support arm designed to stabilize a shoulder rig while keeping the user mobile. The unit consists of a telescopic arm, Rod Bloc, and multi-function shoe which can be independently adjusted to the user's preference.

    The telescopic arm is a simple aluminum support which may be adjusted at two points, from a minimum length of 14" to a maximum of 20". The top end of the rod is capped by an adjustable single-knob joint which supports and positions the CNC machined aluminum Rod Bloc—the attachment point for a shoulder-mounted rig. At the arm's base is an internal spring designed to provide added control when tilting vertically, allowing the user to capture a more stable image while in motion.

    The bottom end of the telescopic arm is fitted with SHAPE's multi-function shoe—a cup-style base designed to rest against the user's torso or in a support belt for additional stability. If needed, the shoe may be removed so that the arm may be used as a boom, providing a connection point for a monitor, microphone, light, and more.

  • Quick Handle + Rod Block

    Combined with the anodized aluminum Rod Block, the Quick Handle offers composite camera support for all 15mm rods.

  • 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.

  • Back Pad

    The Back Pad from SHAPE is a standard rig component included with most SHAPE camera rigs. Its design features a powder coated anodized aluminum plate and arm which are attached to a thick padding on the side facing the user. The pad is easy to both attach and remove from your rig, and it supports the SHAPE BOX attachment. Additionally, the pad's position can be adjusted to the user's preference up to 2" vertically and 360° horizontally.
