SHAPE ARM2 overview

  • 1Description

The Telescopic Support Arm with Rod Bloc from SHAPE is a variable length support arm designed to stabilize a shoulder rig while keeping the user mobile. The unit consists of a telescopic arm, Rod Bloc, and multi-function shoe which can be independently adjusted to the user's preference.

The telescopic arm is a simple aluminum support which may be adjusted at two points, from a minimum length of 14" to a maximum of 20". The top end of the rod is capped by an adjustable single-knob joint which supports and positions the CNC machined aluminum Rod Bloc—the attachment point for a shoulder-mounted rig. At the arm's base is an internal spring designed to provide added control when tilting vertically, allowing the user to capture a more stable image while in motion.

The bottom end of the telescopic arm is fitted with SHAPE's multi-function shoe—a cup-style base designed to rest against the user's torso or in a support belt for additional stability. If needed, the shoe may be removed so that the arm may be used as a boom, providing a connection point for a monitor, microphone, light, and more.

    SHAPE ARM2 reviews

    Telescopic Support Arm with Rod Bloc is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoulder rig stabilizer I had my doubts about this gizmo but now that I've used it I can't imagine ever NOT using it. I have a SHAPE shoulder rig that I was, frankly, reluctant to use because it was difficult to balance and when I did balance it, I had to use a five-pound counterweight which, of course, adds five pounds to the rig. I had an important shoot that required a shoulder rig, so I got this support arm hoping it would help. IT'S AWESOME! I can leave the counterweight behind. The rig is amazingly stable and I can even take my hands off the grips with complete confidence. The arm has a spring section that seemed a little random to me at first, but I've learned that it provides just the right amount of resistance so you can pull down slightly on the handles and it tightens up the whole rig to remove all the hand-held jitter. Doesn't replace a steady-cam, but it's great in those situations where you need to do a little movement without being obviously hand-held.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The missing piece I have been building rigs with a variety of parts from different manufacturers over the past few years. This telescopic support arm finally makes my rig very functional and easy to move around with. Although I already had a weight to put on the back of the shoulder pad, I had to continue holding the handles all of the time I had the camera on my shoulder. This rod is easy to adjust, easy to tighten or loosen- and it keeps everything steady with little effort on my part. The fact that it has an internal spring adds some flexibility; I can leave it loose and just pull down on the handles when I shoot. I also have a good place now for my Libec remote control unit its controls are in easy reach of the handles. I should have gotten this sooner, but I kept thinking that I could cobble something together out of odds and ends. SHAPE machines things very well; no way that I could match this on my own.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Back saver After 25 years of a lot of handheld work, breathing techniques to get the steadiest shot. i ended up on a show that has an over two hours of nonstop handheld (covering real stories with no other way) and suddenly i started feeling fatigue. so tried this one:it is not perfect: take some time to get used to but saves my back.
