The Letus35 MCS Shoulder Cam Bundle for Canon 5D and 7D with Powered Cage and Zacuto EVF Mount was specifically developed for shoulder-mounted filming. Based off of the designs of 35mm Panavision camera rigs, the Shoulder Cam closely mimics the feeling of working with a 35mm camera. Since the camera is meant to rest on your shoulder, it especially convenient to use an EVF while working with this rig. Further resulting from the camera being positioned on your shoulder, not in front of you, the fulcrum point is moved to a fixed position. This permits you to pivot in order to pan during shots, versus making full body rotations that can result in rolling shutter wobble.

The 5D/7D Powered Cage, from which everything else attaches to, is CNC milled aluminum and hard anodized for durability. The cage design incorporates numerous 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 sockets across the entire cage for a large variety of accessory mounting options. In addition to the standard functionality of a camera cage, this cage regulates power in your Canon 5D or 7D through a custom battery dongle that is inserted into the camera. The dongle is hidden within the cage to maintain a sleek, low profile while shooting. This power can be utilized with the start/stop button integrated into the cage as well as with a programmable infrared remote transmitter. Power is supplied to the cage through a 2 pin LEMO style to D-tap connector, which is compatible with standard Gold Mount or V-Mount battery plates.

The EVF knuckle is compatible with the Zacuto EVF and helps to mimic the feeling of a proper viewfinder, as with the use of a 35mm camera. The EVF is easily mounted to a quick release plate, providing simple attachment and removal from the entire knuckle. Precision alignment is possible with the use of an adjustable fluid drag pivot point, allowing tension adjustment as well as forward, backward, side-to-side, and up and down tilting movements.

The V-mount baseplate acts as the foundation for the entire platform and serves as the connection between the camera and any other mount. It is machined from high grade aluminum and stainless steel that is hard anodized for even greater durability. The unique V-mount design permits a quick, intuitive system for mounting and integrates a safety pin to prevent accidental disengaging of the plate.

Also included is the MCS Camera Interface Plate. The camera interface plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and is the mounting platform for attaching your camera to the quick release base of the cage. Included with the 5D/7D Shoulder Cam bundle is the standard plate, which is designed for DSLR-sized cameras and provides support for a rear stabilizer. It is also machined from high grade aluminum and anodized for additional strength.

Other accessories included with the bundle are a dove tail, a quick release clamp, a clamp to rod adapter, a rail to hot shoe adapter, a top/back handle, 2 T-handles and a clamp, a pair of T-handle hybrid rods, 2x 18" / 45.7cm stainless steel base rods, a pair of 9" / 22.9cm black rods, a rear stabilizer, an Anton Bauer compatible plate, a shoulder pad, and a padded long weight. These pieces work together in establishing a strong camera rig system that provides a multitude of mounting options for accessories and other tools.

5D/7D Powered Cage
The cage is built from CNC milled high grade aluminum that is hard anodized for further durability. Featuring numerous 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 sockets, this cage permits mounting a large variety of accessories to the cage as well as being able to easily mount the cage to other platforms. It is highly durable and lightweight, weighing just over a pound; this cage is easy to maneuver and provides protection to your camera body. In addition to the standard functionality of a camera cage, this cage regulates power in your Canon 5D or 7D through a custom battery dongle that is inserted into the camera. The dongle is hidden within the cage to maintain a sleek, low profile while shooting. This power can be utilized with the start/stop button integrated into the cage as well as with a programmable infrared remote transmitter. Power is supplied to the cage through a 2 pin LEMO style to D-tap connector, which is compatible with standard Gold Mount or V-Mount battery plates. The front LEMOs feature a 2 pin processed power (7.2-8.4V) and a 3 pin infrared emitter plug. The rear LEMOs feature a 2 pin power input, a 2 pin processed power (7.2-8.4V), and 4 pin input button for a remote start/stop button.
MCS EVF Knuckle with Quick Release
The EVF knuckle is compatible with the Zacuto EVF and helps to mimic the feeling of a proper viewfinder, as with the use of a 35mm camera. The EVF is easily mounted to a quick release plate, providing simple attachment and removal from the entire knuckle. Precision alignment is possible with the use of an adjustable fluid drag pivot point, allowing tension adjustment as well as forward, backward, side-to-side, and up and down tilting movements.
MCS Baseplate
The V-mount baseplate acts as the foundation for the entire platform and serves as the connection between the camera and any other mount. It is machined from high grade aluminum and stainless steel that is hard anodized for even greater durability. It features a single 1/4"-20 thread and 4x 3/8"-16 threads. The unique V-mount design permits a quick, intuitive system for mounting and integrates a safety pin to prevent accidental disengaging of the plate.
MCS Camera Interface Plate
The camera interface plate attaches to the bottom of the camera and is the mounting platform for attaching your camera to the quick release base of the cage. Included with the 5D/7D Shoulder Cam bundle is the standard plate, which is designed for DSLR-sized cameras and provides support for a rear stabilizer. It is also machined from high grade aluminum and anodized for additional strength.
MCS Rear Stabilizer
Providing a secondary stabilization point, the rear stabilizer sits behind the baseplate on the camera interface plate. It is ported for use with standard 15mm rods and attaches to the camera interface plate through a simple wedge design that catches the stainless steel post within the stabilizer. By doing this, the camera operator can fine tune the amount of tension on the camera interface plate and achieve an extremely solid mount of the camera.
Anton Bauer Gold Mount
The gold mount is an interchangeable battery system that uses 3 solid mechanical connections and self-cleaning gold-plated connection pins, providing uninterrupted power to your camera and electronic accessories. This battery plate allows you to choose whichever battery chemistry you prefer as well as new chemistries as they are developed. The plate is compatible with several different components of the camera rig, including the camera interface plate.
MCS Top Dovetail
The dovetail is typically mounted to the camera cage and provides flexible positioning for the quick release clamp. Outfitted with 1/4"-20 mounting holes along the border of the dovetail, it can be mounted and easily aligned on a variety of bases.
MCS Top Quick Release Clamp
Designed to work quickly and efficiently with the dovetail, the quick release clamp allows for system modifications on the fly. It is perfect for mounting accessories such as an extra handle or a remote for a follow focus above the lens and having them be easily accessible. The design also integrates a blind attachment system, allowing you to simply push the quick release onto the dovetail for connection instead of having to use two hands or precisely line it up for proper attachment.
MCS Padded Long Weight
The padded long weight is a combination of a counter weight as well as a padded shoulder support for your rig. The 5lb / 2.3kg weight fits in behind your shoulder while shooting, providing more control as well as an attachment point for different plates such as the Anton Bauer Gold Plate or a V-Lock. The memory foam pad is wrapped in genuine leather and offers greater comfort and support for long-term use.
MCS Shoulder Pad
Providing extended comfort and support for shoulder rigs, the shoulder pad is constructed out of memory foam and covered in genuine leather. It is designed to attach to the baseplate via a hook and loop fastener, but is also compatible with any surface featuring a hook and loop connection. The center pads are removable and replaceable for customizable comfort and extended future use.
MCS Top Clamp to Rails Adapter
This adapter works in conjunction with the quick release clamp and provides simple attachment of two standard 15mm rods to the top clamp. The rods are necessary for use with iris rods and a remote follow focus. This adapter brings flexibility to where you can mount your accessories by making use of the quick release and dovetail.
MCS Top Iris Rods
These 9" / 22.9cm rods are an industry-standard 15mm in diameter and provide mounting accessibility for a follow focus and other accessories. They are made from hard anodized aluminum for durability and smoothness of use.
MCS Top/Back Handle
These handles provide a versatile grip point that can be mounted to the standard 15mm rods for a large variety of placement options. Featuring a stainless steel rosette pivot plate, the handles can be rotated and locked in 30° increments. They are CNC milled from high grade billet aluminum and feature a silicon grip for extra comfort and durability.
MCS Stainless Steel Base Rods
These 18" / 45.7cm stainless steel rods are tapered on both ends for easy insertion into clamps and for easy attachment and removal of accessories. The stainless steel construction allows them to be highly durable and are more dent and bend-resistant than aluminum rods.
MCS T-Handle Clamp
This clamp provides a secure connection between the T-Handles and standard 15mm accessory rods. The two top holes are compatible with the standard 15mm rod, while the lower, side holes are only compatible with hybrid support rods. The clamp is CNC machined from aluminum and hard anodized.
MCS Handle Hybrid Rods
The hybrid rods are flattened on four sides, preventing them from spinning in the clamp and providing more torque when using the handles. The hybrid design still allows standard 15mm rod accessories and clamps to work with the rails. They are black anodized for durability and a non-reflective functionality.
MCS Rail to Hot Shoe Adapter
This adapter provides a convenient connection between your camera's hot shoe and a 15mm rod clamp. The top rails can then be used to easily mount accessories such as a handle or monitor directly to your camera.
