The Shape Sumo I Camera Support consists of the individual SU Shoulder Rig, Hand5 Quick Handle, and Pad1 Back Pad. Comfortable positioning is offered via a high camera platform raised 3/4" above your shoulder tip, and the camera support is optimally suited for digital DSLR photo cameras such as Canon 5D, Canon 7D, Nikon D300s and Nikon D5000, and Lumix GH1.
A core component of the Sumo I camera support is the SU Shoulder Rig that provides easy adjustment to fit different body types and needs, all via convenient knobs. You can position the camera by attaching it to the camera support via a standard 1/4-20 camera screw. You can adjust the camera nearer or further away from you, or change the camera angle via the knob accessible through a 3" slot on the camera platform. Positioning the Back Pad, Counter Weight, or Telescopic Support Arm is possible to fit your body type, along with easy removal capability. Positioning of the 15mm Rod System and Shape Box is also possible via the Shoulder Rig. A powder coat wrinkle finish and cushion for the Shoulder Pad are integrated into the Shoulder Rig. You can use the Shoulder Rig on either shoulder.
The Hand5 Quick Handle 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 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.
The Pad1 Back Pad can be attached to the Shoulder Rig via a screw knob. Augmented camera support stability and comfort is offered by the Back Pad that is padded on one side and weighs 0.35 lb. You can adjust the positioning of the Back Pad in accordance to your body type with a vertical adjustment range of 1-1/4" and a horizontal adjustment spanning 360°. A screw knob allows easy attachment and removal of the Back Pad from the support. With a 1/4-20 threaded hole, the Back Pad supports attachment of the Shape Box and other accessories.
A compact and portable design allows the Sumo I camera support to be applied in various situations. You can also augment the functionality of the Sumo I via extensive compatibility with additional components such as Telescopic Support Arm, Shape Belt, Shape Box, Counter Weight, 15mm Rod System, and 15mm Rod Riser System.
