Shape has been around for several years and recently also jumped the dslr wagon. Their gear looks like a competitive player in the ever evolving dslr gear wars.
Charles presents their mid-priced friction follow focus, which is a type of ff that drives your lens with rubber instead of a gear. We’ve seen this kind of follow focus at the ikan booth last week.When you’re aiming at this kind of follow focus you wanna make sure you have a baseplate that will rotation-lock your dslr body!
I found the idea and quality of these quicklock handles very interesting. I tried them myself and there is no movement whatsoever, but the readjustment with just one hand is very easy and quick indeed.There’ll also be a version with two points of articulation on each side, but they’re not available yet.
Shape has a lot more gear, also for RED and Arri on their website.
The whole rig as Charles presents it together with the stabilizing crutch-stick is $999. And $789 without.The follow focus is $499.The quick handles are $349.
