The Shape Composite Grip Camera Support is an adjustable, lightweight, and compact 15mm LWS shoulder mount rig for DSLRs and compact video cameras. The rig is built around the Paparazzi Riser baseplate, a pair of 15mm Sliding Rod Blocks, and a set of four 8" 15mm rods. The sliding rod blocks enable you to adjust the height of the rods to suit your camera setup. For shoulder mounted shooting, handles and a shoulder pad are included the mount onto the rods. The handles feature rosettes and SHAPE's patented spring-loaded push-button technology that lets you quickly adjust the angle of the grips on-the-fly with just the push of your thumb. The Adjustable Composite Shoulder Pad is height adjustable thanks to its own Sliding Rod Block. For additional support and comfort, a Back Pad is also included that attaches to the rear of the shoulder pad. When you need to go tripod-mounted, the Paparazzi Riser features 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes at the bottom.

  • Paparazzi Riser

    The Paparazzi Riser from SHAPE is a 2" fixed-height camera riser offering either parallel or perpendicular camera support. The riser's top surface includes a 4" sliding screw slot that enables the camera to be adjusted front-to-back or side-to-side, depending on the riser's orientation. This Paparazzi Riser features several 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes. The hole located on the base is used to attach the riser to a camera support, while the front and rear holes can be used to attach various accessories such as a sliding rod block.

    The Paparazzi Riser is suited for use with small camcorders and DSLR cameras. Constructed of CNC-machined, anodized aluminum, this riser is the common component of all SHAPE Composite camera support systems.

  • Adjustable Composite Shoulder Pad

    The SHAPE Adjustable Composite Shoulder Pad is a core component of SHAPE's Composite series of camera supports. The pad rests on the camera operator's shoulder to transfer the weight of the camera and any accessories closer to the core of the body. The lightweight aluminum shoulder pad is padded for comfort.

    Attached to the front of the pad, the included Sliding Rod Block enables the adjustment – up to 2.75 in (7.0 cm) – that allows the operator to set a pair of 15mm rods and at the proper vertical level.

    The Adjustable Composite Shoulder Pad is compatible with several other camera rig components from SHAPE and, because it accepts standard 15mm rods, other manufacturers as well. You can attach a counterweight to the back of the shoulder pad to provide more support for the camera rig. The shoulder pad is recommended for camera rigs up to 15 lb (6.8 kg) if you're supporting it with dual rods or up to 7.5 lb (3.4 kg) if you're using a single rod, so it's perfect for heavy DSLR setups and lighter HD video 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, add ons for DSLR Product works great and is very dynamic. To use with a DSLR the body mount and shape offset are needed. Also a slider to make camera on and off easier. The ability to make this into whatever you need is really amazing. This product works for many different levels and is a great product for anyone that doesn't want to have to buy a different set up to get more advanced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flexible but Sturdy This is a solidly built grip. I never feel like I'm going to loose the rig even with a camera and a recorder attached. The padding is cut in on the top side and hugs my neck well. I like the handles allot. Quick to move and they stay put.
