Cavision MH3Q-RSD-F overview

  • 1Description

The Cavision Standard Shoulder Pad Package w/ Viewfinder allows you to use your Canon 5D Mk II or other video-enabled DSLR in a manner that approximates the shoulder-mounted style of traditional videography. Shoulder-mounted operation will increase your endurance and reduces the jitter of your shooting, for smooth operation over long days on set or on location. The addition of the viewfinder allows finer control over critical focus and scene framing. The aluminum follow focus device puts smooth control over your lens's focus ring in a position that's much easier to access than the lens barrel itself.

The included Cavision MHE52 Viewfinder magnifies the LCD image by 6x, employing a single glass element and a comfortable rubber eyecup. The eyepiece is a similar size to those found on high-end digital-cinema cameras such as the Sony F900. The combination of the quick-release plate and the swing-away viewfinder connector piece allows you to remove the camera from the rig easily, enabling a quick switch from shoulder-mounted to handheld shooting.

Two pistol-style handgrips attach to the front of the 12 in (30 cm) standard 15mm rods. Four included spacers allow you to adjust the height of the MHE52 Viewfinder to fit almost any DSLR camera. The Standard Shoulder Pad Package puts your camera on rods, it's easy to expand the system if you want to add, for instance, a zoom-control device or a matte box.

Note: Height alignment of LCD Viewfinder is intended for Canon 5D MII. May not align properly with other cameras. (Can also be used on Canon 7D or Canon T2i / 550D with swing away piece flipped upside down).

Shoulder pad is adjustable to fit different shoulder sizes, and features two tilt adjustments
Both handgrips offer swivel adjustment
Swing-away piece features horizontal and forward/backward adjustment, as well as swing-away function for easy access to buttons and camera viewfinder
Follow Focus Device
Constructed of aluminum, the basic single-wheel follow focus features entirely geared transmission for smooth control over the focus ring with minimal backlash. With a horizontal adjustment, it accommodates different lens types and sizes. The follow focus includes Fujinon gear type.

Note:For the follow focus, additional gears and gear rings are required depending on the lens you use.

    Cavision MH3Q-RSD-F reviews

    Shoulder Pad Package w/ Follow Focus & Viewfinder for DSLR Cameras is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great With My 7D After a fiasco of returns and exchanges for the same product, I am finally happy with this rig. It's extremely durable and well built for it's low price compared to Zucuto or Redrock Micro. The follow focus is nice. After all is said and done I do not need the extra spacer plate for my 7D so don't waste your money on that. The returns and exchanges happened for many reasons but mostly due to the fact that quality control doesn't seem to be a big priority at Cavision. Nevertheless, I have a nice DSLR rig at an affordable price. Be aware also, that you may have to do some custom engineering on the rig to make it work for you, as Cavision's design team seems to be in an experimental phase of uncertainty.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A solid piece of gear for the money. I use this rig with my Canon 5D Mk II on professional client shoots. Prior to my purchase of my Cavision Shoulder Pad Package, I had compared many other rigs on the market. Based on it's lower price point, I wasn't sure how good this gear would be. That said, I was very pleased after receiving it, the build is solid and professional. The follow focus works perfect; it's been a great addition to my camera package. The only thing I don't love are the plastic hand grips, will probably change them out, but not a big deal. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and saving a few bucks certainly helps.
