We are happy to announce a pair of new filmmaking gadgets for your shooting pleasure. The first is our Shoulder Mount v3. The v3 improves on the old design, replacing the offset and support bracket by simplifying the adjustments and eliminating the need for allen keys to fine-tune. Thumb screws now allow for x/y axis adjustment via the offset slots or reverse mounting of the rails block attachments. The comfy, non-slip pad remains unchanged as previous users had zero complaints. The Shoulder Mount v3 also utilizes our new, low-profile counterbalance weights which we recommend rigging at a 2:1, rig-to-counterweight ratio.
The v3 is available with or without the offset. Non-EVF shooters will want the offset to ensure proper LCD orientation on DSLRS while camcorder style shooters (or any EVF rig shooters) can negate the offset for a classic ENG style rig.
The new Shoulder Mount v3 has been retro-fitted to all of our shoulder mounted camera rigs (DSLR Deluxe v3, DSLR Rig v3 and Simplis Ultimate v3).
The Mitchell Adapter Plate is our other new product offering, available in two iterations. The Plate can be added to our Atlas 200 camera slider, allowing Mitchell users to attach their heads to the heavy-duty slider. The other option is the Mitchell Hi Hat which, like our Dromos Hi Hat, allows users to get low angle shots while maintaining the ability to pan and tilt their cameras.
For those in the market for a shoulder mount but looking for something a bit more affordable check out the DSLR Shoulder Mount (v2) at a discount along with a bunch of other goodies like Equipment Cases, more DSLR and camera rigs and a few refurbished items in our On Sale and Clearance Section.
