The Shape Red Mamouth II Pro is a camera support unit incorporating the individual RM Shoulder Rig, 15mm Rod System, Arm1 Telescopic Support Arm, 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 use the Shape 15mm Rod System as an accessory for matte boxes, a 35mm lens adaptor, and follow focus mechanisms. Additional weight on the lens is avoided by supporting the weight of these accessories. The 15mm Rod System is composed of a bracket and two 15mm aluminum rods. Measuring 8" (20.3 cm) in length, the rods have 1/2-13 threaded female tips, which allow attachment on other 15mm rods. Using a 4mm hexagonal key, the Rod System is attached to the front of the camera and can be easily removed when not in use. Offering easy adjustment, the Rod System uses a small knob for horizontal adjustments, allowing movement of the rods along the bracket, and vertical adjustments up to a height of 1 3/8" (3.5 cm) to match the height of the video accessory using a 4mm hexagonal key.
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, axes 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 also augment the functionality of the Red Mamouth II Pro via extensive compatibility for additional components such as Shape Belt, Shape Box, Counter Weight, and 15mm Rod System.
