About Cavision

The Cavision Shoulder Pad Package with Flat Camera Plate & 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.

This package includes a flat camera plate to accommodate the installation of a Beachtek audio adapter or a battery pack between the plate and the camera. The height of the device plus the vertical adjustment capability of the swing-away viewfinder connector serve to align the included Cavision MHE52 viewfinder to your DSLR camera. This package is designed for Canon 5D Mk II, 7D, T2i and 550D cameras that have an audio adapter or battery pack mounted to the bottom 1/4" thread.

The 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 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. Because the Shoulder Pad Package puts your camera on rods, it's easy to expand the system if you want to add, for instance, a follow-focus device or a matte box.

Cavision Features

  • Flat camera plate and vertically adjustable LCD viewfinder make this system ideal for a DSLR camera which is raised up by an optional accessory such as a battery grip or BeachTek adapter
  • Standard 15mm rods allow for use of additional accessories such as a matte box or a follow focus
  • Shoulder support system greatly enhances handheld operation and vastly reduces camera jitter

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  How do you attach the VF onto the rig? The screw is not long enough to attach to the side of the plate and it also has no way of staying connected.
GARY H  You will need to clamp an Israeli arm to the rails or via the hotshoe on the camera itself.
Alan C  If I don't have an audio adapter or battery pack mounted to the bottom of my Canon 5d Mark II will this rig still work for me?
TOMMY D  I think without the battery pack the viewfinder will rest to high to use. You can always consider purchasing the shoulder rig and a viewfinder separately.
