The Shape Red Mamouth II Kit is a camera support package incorporating the individual RM Shoulder Rig, Arm1 Telescopic Support Arm, Shape Box, Counter Weight, Hand5 Quick Handle and Pad1 Back Pad accessories and has a sturdy design. Comfortable positioning is offered via a high camera platform raised 3/4" above your shoulder tip. A durable and strong design allows you to use the Red Mamouth II for cameras weighing up to 50 lb. A 3" wide camera platform is used in the camera support unit and is fabricated from 3/16" aluminum.
Forming a core component of the Red Mamouth II camera support is the RM Shoulder Rig that provides easy adjustment to fit different body types and needs, all via convenient knobs. You can position the camera by attaching it to the camera support via a standard 1/4-20" camera screw and a standard 3/8-20" camera screw knob. Positioning the Back Pad, Counter Weight, or Telescopic Support Arm is possible to fit your body type, along with easy removal capability. Positioning of the 15mm Rod System and Shape Box is also possible via the shoulder rig. A powder coated wrinkle finish and cushion for the shoulder pad are integrated into the shoulder rig. You can use the shoulder rig on either shoulder.
You can achieve augmented stability and versatility for the camera support using the Arm1 Telescopic Support Arm. A Manfrotto 233B Camera Mount Bracket with a 4"cup provides large surface contact area. You can extend the Telescopic Support Arm from a length of 14-20", thus achieving higher reach. Rotation of 360deg. along both, vertical and horizontal, axis is possible via the rotating arm. You can place the cup on a stable surface such as your waist, hip, thigh, or a nearby wall, or on the ground.
The Hand5 Quick Handle is a professional video stabilization accessory with 2 camera handles, each providing an individual rotation angle of 360deg.. You can attach the handle to the camera platform using a simple screw knob. A push button located at the articulation allows easy attachment and removal. Combined with the anodized aluminum Rod Block, the Quick Handle offers composite camera support for all 15mm rods. You can achieve precise positioning by sliding the Quick Handle along the rods and tightening the small red knob located on the Rod Block.
The Pad1 Back Pad can be attached to the shoulder rig via a screw knob. Augmented camera support stability and comfort is offered by the back pad that is padded on one side and weighs 0.35 lb. You can adjust the positioning of the back pad in accordance to your body type with a vertical adjustment range of 1-1/4" and a horizontal adjustment spanning 360deg.. A screw knob allows easy attachment and removal of the back pad from the support. With a 1/4-20 threaded hole, the back pad supports attachment of the Shape Box and other accessories.
You can use the Shape Box video accessories holder to hold all accessories in proximity to the camera. Accessories such as wireless audio receivers, audio recorders, hard drive recorders and battery packs can be stored within the Shape Box. Proximity to the camera reduces the length of the connectors and cables required for the accessories. You can attach the Shape Box below the camera platform of compatible camera supports or directly beneath a camera via a 1/4-20" screw located on upper side of the box. Two 1/4-20" threaded holes on the lower side of the Shape Box allow you to connect it above the camera platform of compatible camera supports.
Open front and rear ends of the box allow you to access the housed accessory without hassles for plugging/unplugging cables or accessing controls at the front. Neoprene foam pads measuring 3/16" on the upper and lower surfaces of the box hold the accessory in place. The 1/8" aluminum Shape Box body is covered with industrial grade powder coat paint.
You can augment the stability of the camera support using the Shape Counter Weight that balances or counterweighs the camera at the rear. Free motion of the handles is also enabled as the camera weight is relieved by the counter weight weighing 4 lb. It also includes padding for the counter weight. You can attach the Counter Weight to the camera support via a screw knob.
You can easily position the counter weight to fit your body type and a simple removal mechanism allows you to detach it from the camera support. Augmentation of the Red Mamouth II functionality is possible via extensive compatibility for additional components such as Shape Belt, 15mm Rod System and 15mm Rod Riser System.
