SHAPE Composite Overview

The SHAPE COMPOSITE F3 is designed to position the camera near or over the shoulder, and allows for quick adjustments and easy customizations. It is easy to set up and requires a 0.16” (4mm) hexagonal key.

With various threaded holes (20.25”/51.44cm and 16.38”/41.61cm) at its base, the paparazzi riser camera platform allows for attachment of the quick release plate. The front rods of the COMPOSITE F3 allow you to attach video accessories such as a matte box, a 1.38” (35mm) lens adaptor, and a follow focus mechanism.

Each handle of the COMPOSITE F3 can be individually rotated to 360° by pressing the button located at the articulation. With the release of this button, the handle stays firmly at 1 place. Made of lightweight aluminum, the components of the COMPOSITE F3 offer strength and durability. Most of the parts sport a powder coat paint with wrinkle finish and the rest of the parts are hard anodized.

question

Is this unit compatible with the use of a VCT plate?
Asked by: Sean
Hello Sean, Thank you for your question! Unfortunately, these units are not designed to fit on a VCT plate sytem.

question

Will this work with a NEX_FS700?
Asked by: Christian B.
Hello Christian,Our Composite F3 could work with the FS700, but since that camera has a viewfinder which is centered behind the camera, unless you're going to shoot with an EVF attached on the side, you might find the configuration a bit awkward. May we suggest you take a look at our COMPOSITE STABILIZER... this configuration is offset, therefore allowing you to have the camera's viewfinder in front of you.<a href= http://www.shapewlb.com/en/product/camera-supports-and-accessories/baseplates/dslr-camera-supports/composite/dslr-stabilizer_3.aspx?id_page_parent=1 target= _blank >http://www.shapewlb.com/en/product/camera-supports-and-accessories/baseplates/dslr-camera-supports/composite/dslr-stabilizer_3.aspx?id_page_parent=1</a>We hope this helps and we thank you for your interest in our products.The SHAPE team

question

any reason this Shape Composite F3 should not work with Panasonic HPX170?
Asked by: Tim
Hi Tim. Thanks for your interest on SHAPE products. This setup will work with your camera. If your use your camera with the flip screen you'll able to comfortably work with it. If you like to use the camera viewfinder instead, you can add an OFF-SET bracket and a pair of 15mm by 6 inches rods in order to have a pleasant experience when shooting by long time. Thanks again for asking about SHAPE products. If you have further questions or need more information on how tu use SHAPE products in the future don't hesitate to ask again! Please have a good day.
