SHAPE PADCW2 overview

  • 1Description

The black, 4 lb SHAPE Base Counterweight with Rod Bloc can be used in combination with the Adjustable Composite Shoulder Pad (sold separately), augmenting stability of a camera support by balancing or counterweighing the camera at the rear. Free motion of the handles is also enabled as the camera weight is relieved by the 4 lb weight, and enhanced comfort is offered via padding.

You can attach the counterweight to the shoulder pad via 15mm rods thanks to the Sliding Rod Block. Precise balance is achieved by positioning the counterweight near or further away from you, made possible by sliding the weight along the rods.

The counterweight is made of aircraft-grade aluminum, and it sports a black powder-coated paint finish.

    SHAPE PADCW2 reviews

    Base Counterweight with Rod Bloc (4 lb) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from $25 per pound I needed this to counterbalance my camera package. I'm using a Panasonic AG HMC40 with Shape friction follow focus and Digital Juice matte box. The matte box make the package front heavy to the extent the Monfrotto 504HD was unable to compensate. I needed 4lbs to counteract the weight of the matte box. The counterweight is well made but at 4lbs comes out to cost a little more that 25 buck per pound. A little pricey. It works well with the shape 15mm rod system so rather than trying to engineer my own (time is money) I bit the bullet and bought it. Just seems like a lot of money for a chunk of metal.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Camera Counterweight The 15mm rod bracket is well made, fits my Zacuto rails perfectly. On the downside, the design doesn't allow any flexibility. The weight is large, and only mounts flat, parallel to the rails. Even a simple slot in the weight that would allow additional lateral positioning or rotation, would have been nice. A simple hinge would allow for horizontal or vertical mounting, making it very versatile... Alas, SHAPE chose not to do that.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for any hand held dslr rig This will mount on any 15mm rails system. It's great for countering the weight that comes from a DSLR or other camera. Great build quality. I also own the Shape Composite rig.
