Comfortably support your Sony a7S camera on your shoulder with this SHAPE Offset Shoulder Mount Kit. This kit is based off of 15mm LWS rods, a padded shoulder mount, and a 15mm rod offset that places the camera's LCD and controls in the operator's field of vision, precluding the need for an external monitor or EVF. The camera is protected by the included cage, which also has points to mount other accessories. It connects to the baseplate via a V-lock quick-release. At the front of the rig is a pair of rubberized handgrips, which are spring-loaded and can be rotated at the push of a button. See below for more information on the individual items in this rig.
SHAPE Sony a7S Cage
The SHAPE a7S Cage provides two cold shoe mounts on top and leaves the camera's hot shoe mount accessible, offering convenient support for the Sony XLR-K1M and XLR-K2M audio packs. One cold shoe mount is offset to the side and is removable to provide access to the controls on that side of the camera. The other cold shoe mount overhangs in front of the camera and can be useful for both top handles and mics. The right side of the cage can be unscrewed and totally removed to allow you to hold the camera by the handle. A cutout on the bottom provides battery door access.
The cage secures to the bottom of the camera using an included 1/4"-20 screw with a small retainer ring. There are three mounting threads on the bottom, the middle one for the camera and the other two for tripod plates. The cage is designed specifically for the Sony a7S. It's lightweight and solid and offers added protection and 1/4"-20 mounting threads on all sides.
