Centered around the form-fitting cage with quick-release baseplate, this setup provides all the pieces necessary for a comfortable shoulder-mounted rig, including longer 18" 15mm rods, a set of quick handles with rod bloc, a mini composite shoulder pad, and a back pad. The entire system will amplify your abilities and allow for quick customization while retaining full access to your camera's controls, ports, and slots. Also, the camera will not rotate when secured, the cage has numerous 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threads for accessories, and there is an HDMI cable protector lock. The setup has a support bracket for the Metabones EF adapter, and it is compatible with the Sony XLR-K2m XLR Adapter.
The Shape Quick Handle + Rod Block is a professional video stabilization accessory with 2 camera handles, each providing an individual rotation angle of 360°. You can attach the handle to the camera platform using a simple screw knob. A simple push button located at the articulation allows easy attachment and removal.
Combined with the anodized aluminum Rod Block, the Quick Handle offers composite camera support for all 15mm rods. You can achieve precise positioning by sliding the Quick Handle along the rods and tightening the small red knob located on the Rod Block. With 2 screw-threaded holes, the Rod Block provides for attachment of components such as the Quick Handle.
The SHAPE Mini Composite Shoulder Pad is a comfort-padded and comfort-shaped shoulder pad for the back of your camera rig. Outfitted with a 15mm-mount SHAPE Rod Block, the pad attaches right onto a pair of 15mm rods, slides into the best position on them, and tightens in place by a quality lever. It also has a black Screw Knob under which you can add a SHAPE Counter Weight or a SHAPE Back Pad, both optional and both back-supported accessories that work as extensions of the shoulder pad. The Screw Knob's screw is a 1/4"-20 screw. If you remove the Screw Knob, you'll have yourself a 1/4"-20 screw-hole to add various 1/4"-20-mount accessories into.
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.
These Shape's 15mm Rods are a pair of 18" long rods that fit studio and LWS 15mm rod clamps, allowing you to use available rod mounted accessories. This pair of rods are approximately 18" long and machined from hollow aluminum tubes. The rods feature chamfered ends that make it easier to insert into available 15mm rod clamps.
