SHAPE FS5SM Reviews

Well made, quality materials

Lightweight, easy to manage and infinitely adjustable. The only minor drawback is that if you wish to use the EVF you need to turn the camera 45 degrees to bring the EVF to your eye, when this is done the back pad tends to dig into your shoulder necessitating its removal. Perhaps some type of offset plate would be a solution.

Easy and Efficient

I am working on a documentary and needed a shoulder mount for assorted events and interviews we are doing. It is great to use on the fly, lightweight and easy to manage.

Asked by: Jay
Hello Jay, Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, the baseplate in this rig will not fit onto our VCT plate. However it has threaded holes underneath, to attach a tripod quick release plate. If you wish to use a VCT plate, we invite you to take a look at our Sony FS5 Bundle rig with Metabones support. https://www.shapewlb.com/en/product/brands/sony-camera-supports/sony-pxw-fs5-camera-supports/sony-fs5-fs5m2-baseplate-bundle-rig-with-metabones-support_850.aspx?id_page_parent=1179.

Is it possible to use the baseplate with a tripod with the assistance of a quick release plate and which would be the best to use with this rig?
Asked by: Jay
Hello Jay, Thank you for your question! Indeed it is possible. You can easily attach any tripod quick release plate underneath all of our baseplates. Any video tripod which has a quick release plate, not too big would be ideal. We hope this helps and we thank you for your interest in our products. The Shape team.

question

Is it possible to screw a plate on it that way it can go straight from the shoulder to the tripod ?
Asked by: Nick M.
Hello NickThank you for your question! Indeed you can attach your tripod plate underneath the main baseplate of our unit and leave it there at all times given the threaded holes underneath the main baseplate. You have access to 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 threaded holes.We hope this answers your question and we thank you for your interest in our products.Best regards,The SHAPE team

I purchased this shoulder rig but its too front heavy to use comfortably. Does Shape have a solution for adding weight at the back to balance the weight?
Asked by: Kristin
