The Shoulder Mount Kit with Cage, Matte Box & Follow Focus from SHAPE is designed for the Panasonic Lumix S1, S1R, or S1H camera and includes a shoulder mount, a camera cage with top handle and 15mm rod system, a Metabones adapter support bracket, a 4 x 5.6 matte box, and a single-rod follow focus system. The cage allows access to all controls and ports on the camera.
The shoulder mount features a 15mm rod system with a shoulder pad, back pad, and dual front handles with a rod block and two 18" long 15mm rods. Mounted on top of the rod block, the cage includes a cable protector to secure and prevent the HDMI cable from pulling. Both the cage and included handle feature 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes for attaching accessories. With push-button technology, this cage allows fast and easy adjustment with 360° rotation at just one push of the button. The top handle is lined with wood for comfort and extra grip.
Built with durable aluminum, this cage features a quick release plate at the center of the camera, allowing the quick removal of the camera from the cage. A Metabones adapter built into the cage allows for easy changing of the lens and provides extra support to prevent stress on the camera when using longer lenses. The clip-on matte box controls light from entering the lens and allows you to apply and adjust filters. It features a swing-away system with an 82mm filter ring and two 4 x 5.6" rotating filter stages. This matte box comes with top and side flags and six step-up rings from 82mm to 52, 58, 62, 67, 72, and 77mm.
The follow focus system is designed to mount onto the standard 15mm rods included with the cage. It can be instantly attached or detached from the rods using a lever clamp system and can swing away for lens changes. The focus ring is surrounded by a ring of rubber that provides a firm contact with the lens and ensures accurate and slip-free focusing. The focus mechanism can be used on the left or right side of the lens, and five drive gears are included to fit a variety of lenses: 0.5 MOD/78T, 0.6 MOD/64T, 0.8 MOD/38T, 0.8 MOD/43T, and 0.8 MOD/78T. There are also four white marking disks included which attach to the wheel via magnets.

Gear up your Panasonic Lumix S1, S1R, or S1H with this dedicated Cage with Top Handle and 15mm Rod System from SHAPE. The full-frame design protects your camera while leaving its controls, ports, memory card slot, battery compartment, lens release button, and camera hot shoe easily accessible.

Mounting options on the cage body include a cold shoe mount, numerous 1/4"-20 threaded holes, and two 3/8"-16 ARRI-style locating holes, allowing for easy rig expansion. On the bottom, a quick release baseplate system with two 15mm rods enables you to mount additional optional accessories such as a matte box, follow focus, or battery plate.
By holding the cage by the top handle with wooden grip you'll enjoy more flexibility for capturing low-angle shots and also for carrying your camera around.

The cage secures your camera via a bottom 1/4"-20 screw and is designed to provide a solid, twist-free connection even when using heavier lenses. On the underside, there are one 3/8"-16 and four 1/4"-20 threaded holes for mounting the cage on an optional quick release tripod plate. A locking system holds the camera's cables in place to prevent accidental pullouts and protect your camera's ports. The camera's strap hooks can remain attached when the camera is mounted on the cage.
SHAPE Follow Focus Kit with Single 15mm Rod Clamp
Use the compact SHAPE Follow Focus Kit with Single 15mm Rod Clamp with your camera setup to make focus pulling easy. The modular design allows you to add and remove any of the components without screws or tools, and its small profile allows the addition of a matte box or accessories around your lens.
At the core of the kit is a rubber, anti-slip follow focus wheel attached to a single aluminum 15mm rod clamp. The clamp rotates to adjust to most lens sizes, and it's tightened by a locking lever. The clamp's rotation also allows the focus wheel to easily swing out of the way when changing lenses.
Five drive gears are included to fit a variety of lens sizes: 0.5 MOD/78T, 0.6 MOD/64T, 0.8 MOD/38T, 0.8 MOD/43T, and 0.8 MOD/78T. The gears can be flipped from front to back to facilitate different lens configurations. A 49mm rubber friction wheel is also included for the 0.5 MOD/78T gear which is most commonly used with DSLR lenses.
For alternate fine-focus configurations, use the included speed crank or 11" whip, both of which attach to the center point of the knob. Four magnetic marking disks are included to attach to the focus wheel.
