PROKIT has become the exclusive distributor for Canadian manufacturer Shape, and introduces them to the UK. Shape are a small, innovate company dedicated to making life with a small camera or camcorder, more comfortable. Based near Montreal, the team have spent 15 years in the production community. Their products are built by cameramen, for cameramen, and include an evolving range of shoulder mounts, handles and supports.
The Shape "Sumo" is a simple yet comfortable, low cost shoulder support for DSLR cameras and camcorders.
The Shape "Composite Grip" range offers a greater level of adjustment and customisation, also suiting a wide range of camcorder and DSLR configurations. 15mm parallel bars allow the addition of a matte box and follow focus unit.
The Shape "Paparazzi" is a lightweight handle that can be used to attach accessories such as LED lights, spot lights, LCD screens, remote controls, microphones etc.
All shoulder models feature Shape's unique quick-release handle angle locks; each handle can rotate individually through 360 degrees. Simply push and hold the button located at the articulation, and rotate the handle. Immediately the camera operator finds their own most comfortable shooting angle.
Waist supports, counterbalance weights and accessory holders add further versatility to the range.
Mark Holmes, Business Development Director, said, "Combining Shape's pragmatic design approach with the need to stabilise small camcorders and DSLRs when shooting hand-held or shoulder mounted, produces a range of solutions which PROKIT is delighted to recommend."
