The SC4:LARGE LE Dovetail Based Shoulder Support from Swedish Chameleon is the light edition of the SC4:LARGE support rig. It consists of the same key components but excludes the follow focus, DSLR anti-twist plate, and carrying case. The SC4:LARGE is designed for filmmakers with long workdays, long shoots, or heavy setups with many accessories that need to be attached to the rig. It features a backrod and waist belt that work as an effective counterweight system, performing the same function as an ordinary heavy counterweight system, but without adding additional weight. This allows you to take the weight of the rig off your arms, and even let go of the handles completely. Together with the large and comfortable angled shoulder piece that distributes the weight evenly over your shoulder, you will be able to carry a heavy setup for a long period of time.

The dovetail system makes the transition from tripod (no rig) to shoulder fast and easy. The shoulder and handle 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. Also included is a SC:ATTACH that can be used to support larger lenses with tripod support or to attach accessories.

The SC4:LARGE LE is essentially three rigs in one as it includes all of the components needed to assemble the SC4:SMALL or SC4:MEDIUM rigs as well. This gives you the flexibility to build the right rig for the occasion. It is suitable for DSLRs, camcorders, and many camera cages.

Dual Dovetail Plate
The SC4:DUAL DT PLATE is the core of the SC4:LARGE 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 or SC4:LARGE 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.
Backrod and Waist Support
The SC:BACKROD SUPPORT consists of a 15.7" rod connected to a waist belt. Together they work as an effective counter weight system to take the weight of the rig off of your arms; it even allows you to let go of the handles. The SC:BACKROD SUPPORT can easily be attached to or detached from the SC4:SHOULDER by turning an adjustable knob.
Padded Shoulder Support
The SC4:SHOULDER is a lightweight aluminum plate formed to go over the shoulder. It features a thick, angled neoprene-covered foam pad that distributes the weight of the rig evenly over your shoulder. The plate has multiple holes and there are three fastener straps to hold batteries, cables, transmitters etc. At the front, the SC4:SHOULDER is connected to the SC:ROD S-SHAPED 15 x 300mm CC50. Depending on how you rotate the rod you can make vertical adjustments (chest to eye level) and offset adjustments of 3.9". At the back, you can connect the SC4:SHOULDER to the SC:BACKROD SUPPORT for counterweight. This way you will be able to carry a heavy setup for a long period of time.
Simple Shoulder Piece
In addition to the SC4: SHOULDER, the SC4:LARGE LE includes a simple shoulder piece so that you can choose to assemble an SC4:SMALL or SC4:MEDIUM support rig as well. It consists of 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) with as much as 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 300mm CC50 (eye level mount) or SC:ROD S-SHAPED 15 x 400mm CC110 (low level mount) 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-hand 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.
