Shape now also offers a complete camera rig accessory system for filmmakers for the mirrorless full format Panasonic S1 and S1R. The central component of the Shape system for the S1/S1R is the new Shape Camera Cage (LS1CAGE), which comes with only 82.71 Euro in the Shape Online Shop comparatively cheap.
The LS1CAGE should allow free access to all camera functions when mounted, especially the battery compartment, the side doors for memory cards and external connections. The Cage is mounted via a magnetic Allen key which is always carried in the ground.
In our eyes, two mounts equipped with Arri Standard 3/8″-16 Anti-Rotating Lock Pins and ¼-20 threads for external accessories such as Magic Arms, monitors etc. are very welcome.
Access to the Panasonic S1&s hot shoe was left free in the LS1CAGE for the optional mounting of the Panasonic XLR adapter. Full-size HDMI cable clamps should also be compatible with the LS1CAGE. The camera strap mounts of the Panasonic S1 /S1R can be left on the cameras when the cage is mounted and used further.
In the bottom of the LS1CAGE there are four 1/4-20 and one 3/8-16 thread as well as an integrated standard Arca Swiss Quick Release mount.
Based on the LS1CAGE, Shaoe also offers various expansion stages/setps up to complete shoulder setups for Panasonic S1 operation including baseplates, rod recordings, mattbox and follow focus.
All Shape Rigs offer a lifetime warranty on all CNC milled components (unless otherwise stated).
