The CameraRibbon Shoulder Rig Camera Support with V-Mount Battery Plate for Blackmagic Cinema or 4K Camera is a lightweight and compact padded shoulder support for ENG style shooting with an available Blackmagic Cinema Camera or Blackmagic 4K Production Camera. The support is made from a single strip of 1/8" aluminum and incorporates a cheeseplate and V-Mount battery plate that acts as the counterweight, while providing external power to the camera. The battery plate features a D-Tap power connector for accessories. The rig takes the strain off the camera operator's wrist, hands, and back with a counterbalanced and padded shoulder support.
The rig's design allows 4 x points of contact with the operator for very stable handheld shots, while maintaining a comfortable and balanced posture for the videographer. The included standard length quick-release plate features a 1/4"-20 mounting screw. The QR plate adapter (mounted to the support) features a locking lever, safety release, and 2 x accessory mounting points - 1 x 1/4"-20 and 1 x 3/8"-16. The rig includes hook and loop adhesive so you can attach a wireless microphone system to the rig. An included tripod strap allows you to mount the camera to a tripod and hang the rig from the strap, so you can power your camera from the rig.
