SHAPE PADCW1 overview

  • 1Description

The Counter Weight from SHAPE is an important video rig accessory that increases the stability of your shoulder rig by balancing and counter-weighting heavy camera equipment. The relief provided by the Counter Weight reduces strain on the user's arms and allows for easy adjustment of the rig's forward handles.

The weight is easily attached and detached with the use of a simple screw-knob, and may be removed quickly when not needed. Additionally, the side of the weight facing the user is padded to increase user comfort and prevent injury. At just 4 lb, the Counter Weight is a great accessory to keep with your mobile kitespecially to offset the heft of many popular video cameras.

    SHAPE PADCW1 reviews

    Counter Weight is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with Shape pad Purchased with Shape mini shoulder pad-- they should really bundle the two. The weight is padded on the body side so it feels nice and even offers a little extra shoulder surface area. Nice product highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST for prosumer/DSLR camera users!!! The SHAPE counter weight makes a huge difference when you're out in the field shooting anything that requires shots without a tripod. I run with an XHA1-s and it hurts my right wrist because of the weight of the camera + the length of time I have to shoot for. When I got a SHAPE shoulder mount and handles, I was pleased to see that SHAPE (through B&H) makes a padded counter weight. I hooked it up as soon as it came in the mail. It took 10 seconds to slide it on the back of my SHAPE shoulder mount and screw on the bolt+washer. I put my camera on the completed shoulder mount and was VERY happy with what I was feeling. The padding on my shoulder/upper back was just what I expected! Nothing uncomfortable about it. Now I'm getting steady shots and my wrist doesn't hurt because of the balance that takes place on my shoulder. Also the SHAPE handles have the ability to adjust to any angle (vertical). I usually set them both to a 45 degree angle and I'm ready to go. The guys I work with are impressed with the quality of the SHAPE shoulder mount and my shots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice complement to Shape Spider Great complement to any Shoulder rig. Only design element I'd recommend would be have a hole to possibly mount other items on to.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Counter Weight First of all: I think $ for a counterweight/piece of metal is totally overpriced. The padding is okay - the mount is not good. Although I closed the screw as hard as I was able, the weight still moves a bit - though I am not able to open the screw just with my hands. Not satisfying!Nevertheless the counter weight is important and essential to use the Adjustable Shoulder Mount.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from essential if you have the composite rig, this counter weight is,in my opinion, essential. It make your rig heavier and more balanced... in a word, more stable ! and it's not that heavy ;)
