The SC4:MEDIUM LE Dovetail Based Shoulder Support from Swedish Chameleon is the light edition of the SC4:MEDIUM support rig. It consists of the same key components but excludes the follow focus and DSLR anti-twist plate. The SC4:MEDIUM is designed for filmmakers who want an advanced run-and-gun solution. The dovetail system makes the transition from tripod (no rig) to shoulder mounted fast and easy. The shoulder piece and dual handgrip unit can be detached from the rig in seconds, leaving you with a 5.9" long dual dovetail plate, bridge plate with two 15mm rods, quick-release plate, and a camera fixation plate.

It system is suitable for DSLRs and camcorders, and most camera cages. All that limits you is the weight of your setup, since you will still carry most of the weight of the rig on your arms. The SC4:MEDIUM LE is easily upgradeable to an SC4:LARGE LE rig via an optional upgrade kit, giving you a padded shoulder support and unique backrod/waist belt support that takes the weight off of your arms.

Dual Dovetail Plate
The SC4:DUAL DT PLATE is the core of the SC4:MEDIUM system. It is a 5.9"-long dual dovetail plate that is compatible with Manfrotto 501PL type quick-release assemblies. It has safety pins on both ends to reduce the risk of gear accidentally sliding off. The dovetail plate allows you to make balance adjustments when shooting on tripods and for positioning of the whole setup when on your shoulder. It also has holes for attaching an optional mounting plate that allows you to mount other types of tripod plates, or to extend with an additional SC4:DUAL DT PLATE.
Modular Bridge Plate
The SC4:MODULAR BRIDGEPLATE is the bridge between the camera and the SC4:DUAL DT PLATE. It holds a pair of 15mm rods, with 11.8" long rods included. Rods are easily adjusted horizontally and tightened by the turn of an adjustable knob. The rods enable mounting of optional accessories, such as a follow focus or matte box. The distance from center of rod to camera base is 29.6mm. The top and bottom of the SC4: MODULAR BRIDGEPLATE is dovetail style, allowing it to slide onto the top of the SC4: DUAL DT PLATE.
Quick-Release Camera Plate
The SC4:DT CAMERA QR PLATE slides onto the top of the SC4: MODULAR BRIDGEPLATE for an SC4:MEDIUM setup or straight onto the SC4:DT CLAMP SINGLE ROD 15mm and the SC4:DT HANDLES UNIT for an SC4:SMALL setup. This makes it smooth and easy to go from tripod/no rig to full shoulder setup - just keep the SC4:DT CAMERA QR PLATE attached to the camera at all times. The SC4:DT CAMERA QR PLATE suits all tripods that are compatible with the Manfrotto 501PL type plates.
Simple Shoulder Piece
The lightweight simple shoulder piece is a foam-covered SC:ROD S-SHAPED 15 x 400mm CC110. Depending on how you rotate the rod you can make vertical adjustments (chest to eye level) up to 9". You can choose to keep the rod under your arm, leaning it on the shoulder or detach it completely from the support, depending on the situation. Having the rig resting on your shoulder instead of pressing it towards your chest reduces arm fatigue and gives you a third stabilization contact point that results in smoother movements and reduces shakiness and micro-shakes.
Eye-Level or Low-Level Camera Positioning
The SC:ROD S-SHAPED 15 x 400mm CC110 is connected to the bottom of the SC4:DUAL DT PLATE by an SC4:DT CLAMP SINGLE ROD 15mm. This clamp can be positioned for both left- and right-shoulder shooting. The clamp simply slides onto the SC4:DUAL DT PLATE (or straight on the SC4:DT CAMERA QR PLATE for an SC:SMALL setup) and is secured with a knob.
Dual Handgrips
The SC4:DT HANDLES UNIT consists of a dovetail dual 22mm rod clamp, two 5.1" long 22mm handle rods, and two curved handles with rubber grip. It has a wide distance of 5.5" from center to center of the handle rods, giving you roll stability and comfortable arm positioning. The 22mm handle rods can be adjusted horizontally and rotated, letting find a position the works best for you. You can also turn the handles straight up creating a v-rig for low down shooting. The SC4:DT HANDLES UNIT easily slides onto the SC4:DUAL DT PLATE (or straight on the SC4:DT CAMERA QR PLATE for an SC:SMALL setup) and is firmly secured by a knob.
