SHAPE Blackmagic Pocket Offset Shoulder Mount
The Blackmagic Pocket Offset Shoulder Mount from SHAPE is a camera rig that is designed to enable shoulder-stabilized hand-held shooting with the Pocket Cinema Camera while providing a platform to mount 15mm rod-based accessories such as follow focuses and matte boxes. In addition to a shoulder mount and rods, the system features a cage for the Pocket Cinema Camera as well as a top handle. The cage helps protect the camera and features 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes for the addition of camera-mountable accessories such as recorders and monitors. The system is modular, so that the cage can be separated from the rod system for use in other applications, such as mounting the camera in a tight space.
By offsetting the camera it is possible to use the Pocket's built-in LCD screen or even put a loupe over LCD screen for and ENG-style setup. It also allows you to use an EVF (electronic view finder) or small monitor mounted directly to the camera. The offset bracket and front rods can also be set aside if you ever wish to shoot with the camera directly over your shoulder. The hand grips feature spring-loaded push buttons so that they can be adjusted on the fly without having to loosen a screw or bolt. They can also be taken off completely to suit certain shooting styles or to use the rig mounted on a tripod. There is a 1/4"-20 threaded hole under the camera base plate so that it can connect with most tripod quick release plates.
