SHAPE Pro Bundle Rig for RED WEAPON EPIC-W, SCARLET-W, and RAVEN Cameras is a camera support system designed for the RED WEAPON, EPIC-W, SCARLET-W, and RAVEN cameras. It includes the REVOLT VCT universal baseplate, a top plate with extendable top handle, and a pair of telescopic handles compatible with ARRI rosettes. All the kit components are made from CNC Machined aluminum. Both the baseplate, as well as the top plate, feature a magnet compartment for Allen key storage.
The REVOLT VCT Universal Baseplate comes integrated with a shoulder mount, a pair of 8" standard 15mm rods, and a pair of 4" standard 15mm rods. The sliding baseplate provides a quick positioning of your camera and accessories, for an optimal adjustment of your camera's balance center. The included left and right telescopic handgrips attach to the sides of the baseplate via standard ARRI rosettes. Each arm features three points of articulation, combined with the approximately 2" of arm extension, allowing you to adjust the arms for your comfort.
The center of the top plate is designed to insert and mount the top handle using an Allen key (included). The plate attaches to the camera via four 1/4"-20 stainless steel screws, and features eight 1/4"-20 and four 3/8"-20 threaded holes for accessory attachment. The top plate also includes a push button arm with viewfinder bracket that can easily be attached to the top handle for an optimal setup of the rig.
The top handle features six threaded holes that allow for mounting the push button arm to the top plate. It also features one 15mm rod clamp for attaching a viewfinder (not included) to the push button arm. Four 1/4"-20 threaded holes in the front and two hot brackets (front and back) allow for multiple accessory attachment. The handle grip frame is made from robust CNC Machined aluminum, and the finger grip is made from Canadian maple wood for maximum comfort. You can quickly slide it horizontally and fix the handle length for an extension of approximately 3" from its original position, thanks to the ratchet knob bracket system.
Note: This bundle is not compatible with the RED DRAGON, EPIC, and SCARLET cameras.
REVOLT VCT Universal Baseplate
Featuring a sliding camera plate, SHAPE's REVOLT VCT Universal Baseplate can accommodate rigs of varying sizes. Simply attach your camera via 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 screws to the top plate, and slide it onto the shoulder plate. Fore and aft movement allows you to balance the weight of your setup properly. Further adjustments can be made by moving the shoulder pad. The 15mm rod clamps at the front and rear of the baseplate allow you to secure 15mm accessories such as a matte box, follow focus, lens motors, lens supports, battery plates, or external recorders. Since the front rod clamp is attached to the top plate, the rod-mounted accessories don't need to be repositioned as the rig is adjusted. Additionally, handles can be mounted to the ARRI standard rosettes on either side of the plate. When not shoulder-mounted, the baseplate can be secured to a standard VCT-14 ENG quick release in a matter of seconds, saving time on set.
