Camcorders these days are often box shaped and awkward to hold. I often refer to them as “ergonomically challenged”, and there is none more box-like than the upcoming Blackmagic Cinema Camera.

If you’ve been looking for a handheld solution for the Blackmagic then look no further than these three excellent rigs from Shape.

We’ve been importing and selling Shape rigs for two years now and the combination of innovative design, top-end build-quality and competitive pricing make their rigs our favourite. They’re just great value for money and built to last.

They have three rigs for the upcoming Blackmagic Cinema Camera:

Shape Blackmagic Handheld

£435 + vat

“Specially designed for BlackMagic Cinema Camera this rig is light and solid with CNC machined pieces. Perfect configuration for EVF, monitor and other accessories with threaded screw mounts of 1/4" and 3/8".”

Shape Blackmagic Shoulder Mount

£725 + vat

“Specially designed for BlackMagic Cinema Camera this shoulder rig is light, with solid CNC machined pieces and an easily removable comfortable shoulder pad. Perfect configuration for EVF, monitor and other accessories with threaded screw mounts of 1/4" and 3/8".”

 

Shape Blackmagic Offset Shoulder Mount

£870 + vat

"Specially designed for BlackMagic Cinema Camera this shoulder rig is light, with solid CNC machined pieces and an easily removable comfortable shoulder pad. Perfect configuration to use the BlackMagic Cinema Camera touch screen and other accessories with threaded screw mounts of 1/4" and 3/8"."

 

We’ll be seeing these rigs at the IBC Exhibition this weekend. They look pretty awesome to us so I for one am very excited: I quite like “cage” style rigs because they allow you to add accessories like viewfinders and monitors.

You can pre-order your Shape rig with us now, and we’ll have some soon on demonstration in our showroom.
