About this item

The Shape Cameleon I Camera Support consists of 3 distinct components, the CA Shoulder Rig, Hand6 Quick Handle and Pad1 Back Pad. It is designed to be used on either shoulder. The camera support is also compatible with most video and DSLR cameras with a standard 1/4-20 threaded socket.

When worn, the camera platform (and the base of the camera) is placed 0.75"(1.9cm) above the tip of the shoulder. This rig is manufactured from light-weight aluminum and has a powder coat wrinkle finish. The shoulder pad is cushioned for comfort.

The CA Shoulder Rig can be adjusted to fit your needs and body type. All modifications can be done using knobs on the device and you can arrange the camera and attach it to the rig using a standard 1/4-20 screw. This knob can be reached through a 3" (7.5cm) opening on the camera platform. The angle that the camera is pointing at can also be adjusted. Using a knob, you can adjust the back pad or even remove it when not required. The shoulder rig features a telescopic support arm that can be extended or retracted to fit your body type and can be removed when not needed. It can also be attached to a tripod head via an optional quick-release plate that can be fixed underneath the camera platform.

Positioned on either side of the shoulder that the rig is worn, the Hand6 Quick Handle consists of 2 handles. Each handle is ergonomically designed and can be rotated 360deg., offering a firm grip. The handles are equipped with buttons which when pressed allow the handle to be rotated and when released hold the handle tightly in place.

The Pad1 Back Pad acts as a counter-weight (0.35 lb or 0.160 kg) and can be separated from the rig by means of a screw knob. It can easily be adjusted to suit your body type and adjusts upwards and downwards through a distance of 0.25-1" (3cm) and through 360deg. from left to right. The back pad features a 1/4-20 threaded hole that can be used to attach the Shape Box or another compatible accessory.
