The Shape C300 RIG is made in Canada and is one of the better made rigs I have come across. Pressing the red buttons on the handle allow you to re-position the handles for a more comfortable position.

The hands-free TELESCOPIC SUPPORT ARM ROD BLOC includes a ROD BLOC and a camera mount bracket with a 4″ MULTIFUNCTION SHOE that provides a large surface contact area. Increased stability, comfort and maneuverability are provided to the camera support using the TELESCOPIC SUPPORT ARM ROD BLOC which can be easily attached to the shoulder rig via the ROD BLOC.

If you use the Shape RIG with a Canon C300 you will need to use the special C300 plate which bolts onto the C300 as shown above, this makes it far easier to screw the rig baseplate onto the C300.

The Shape RIG is well thought out with a padded shoulder pad, body brace (support arm) for extra stability and the swivel handles. Like all rigs you are adding extra weight to your camcorder almost doubling up on the weight of the camera again so think carefully when buying one.

NOTE : The Canon C300, matte box and Zacuto EVF are not included in the price of £999.

If you buy one from H Preston Media tell them you saw this on HD Warrior and John will give you a further £20 off the rig !


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. Shape rigs are very nice. Worth every penny. The waist pole is awesome as well…
