The Classic Cool-Rig with Top Handle & Cheese Plate from Cool-Lux is a compact shoulder mount solution designed for large and mid-size cameras. At its core, it features the multi-purpose SHIFT Baseplate and comes complete with a hand-finished walnut handgrip, telescoping top handle, and rod-mount cheese plate.

At the press of a button, the SHIFT Baseplate releases a flip-out chest support bar that helps balance the rig. When the bar is released, a soft and durable shoulder pad is also made available. When you fold it back up, it provides 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded tripod mount holes. The resting position of the bar is adjustable to different body types.

The SHIFT Baseplate offers front and rear 15mm rod ports with 1.9" of vertical adjustment on both sets, and it comes with 8" and 4" pairs of carbon fiber 15mm rods. It also provides 4.5" of sliding dovetail camera plate travel for balancing your camera.

The cheese plate will allow you to mount battery plates, recorders, transmitters, receivers, and other accessories on the rear. It has mounting holes for Gold mount and V-mount battery plates and for the AJA Ki Pro and Teradek Bolt transmitters. It also has 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes for articulating arms and various other accessories, and a center slot for mounting anything with two 1/4"-20 taps spaced up to 2" apart. Two 1/4"-20 screws are included for use with the center slot. The cheese plate can be mounted either vertically or horizontally using the rod bridge included with it.

The top handle features a NATO rail and clamp design and can be secured to the rod bridge of the cheese plate when the cheese plate is mounted horizontally. It can also be attached directly to the center slot on the cheese plate. The handle itself telescopes out up to 4.5", allowing you to set the most appropriate length.

The walnut handgrip comes on a single rod clamp and is adjustable via a rosette adapter secured to the clamp.

Note:
Some DSLRs/small cameras with lenses that sit close to the bottom surface of the camera will require an optional spacer or quick-release plate to properly center the rods.

Cool-Lux SHIFT Baseplate

The Cool-Lux SHIFT Baseplate is a multi-purpose shoulder mount rig designed for large and mid-size cameras. Attach a handgrip, and you have a full solution. Different handgrips (telescoping and walnut) are available from Cool-Lux. But, you can also upgrade it with cheeseplates and counterweights from Cool-Lux, for standard, cine, and ENG applications.

At the press of a button, the SHIFT Baseplate releases a flip-out chest support bar that helps balance the rig. When the bar is released, a soft and durable shoulder pad is also made available. When you fold it back up, it provides 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded tripod mount holes. The resting position of the bar is adjustable to different body types.

The SHIFT Baseplate offers front and rear 15mm rod ports with 1.9" of vertical adjustment on both sets, and it comes with 8" and 4" pairs of carbon fiber 15mm rods. The camera plate is adjustable 4.5" along a dovetail for properly balancing your camera.
