The SmallRig VCT-14 Universal Shoulder Rig Kit adds a solid handheld shoulder support to your camera rig.
The kit includes the Sony VCT-14 Shoulder Pad Pro, two adjustable rosette extension arms, one wooden left-side rosette handgrip, one wooden right-side rosette handgrip, and two 15mm carbon fiber rods measuring 9″ in length.
The support allows you to quickly switch between handholding your video camera and mounting it on a Sony-style VCT-14 tripod adapter plate.
The shoulder plate incorporates a Manfrotto 501-style quick release plate, enabling you to easily balance your rig and detach your camera from the shoulder plate when desired. The two adjustable rosette arms mount onto the rosettes on either side of the plate, and the right and left handgrips mount onto the ends, allowing 360° rotation.
The VCT-14 plate features include front and back 15mm LWS rod support, ARRI-standard handgrip rosettes, and multiple 1/4″-20 accessory threads.
The two included 15mm rods insert into the baseplate on the front or back to add a variety of accessories such as a follow focus or matte box. The 15mm LWS rod support has 0.9″ of vertical adjustment for compatibility with a greater range of lens accessories.
The support is compatible with small and midsize cinema-style cameras such as the Sony FS5, FS5 II, FS7, FS7 II, FX9, FX6; Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and 6K, URSA Mini; Canon EOS C100, C200, C300, C500; and the Panasonic EVA-1.
SmallRig 1870 Adjustable Extension Arm with Two ARRI Rosettes
Position your handgrip at just the right length with the 1870 Adjustable Extension Arm from SmallRig. The arm provides 6.6 to 10.2″ of added length for an ARRI rosette-mounted handgrip.
This aluminum arm features a rosette with an M6 thumbscrew on each end, with each rosette providing 360° of rotation.
SmallRig Left-Side Wooden Grip with ARRI Rosette
The Left-Side Wooden Grip with ARRI Rosette from SmallRig mounts on your camera cage or rig’s ARRI-standard rosette and is contoured for a comfortable grip.
This revamped grip can now be adjusted vertically and at three angles using just two screws and the Allen wrench tucked in the bottom of the grip.
Attach this lightweight grip using the captive thumbscrew or remove the center M6 screw for use with a rig requiring a female thread. The rosewood grip stays comfortable even in cold weather, and the aluminum hardware helps reduce the overall weight.
SmallRig Right-Side Wooden Handgrip with ARRI-Standard Rosette
Contoured for a comfortable grip, the Right-Side Wooden Handgrip with ARRI-Standard Rosette from SmallRig mounts onto your camera rig’s ARRI-standard rosette. The rosette allows the handle to rotate 360° for your desired position.
Fasten the grip’s rosette component to one of several positions on the grip using the two M4 screws to adjust its vertical position and rotate the rosette itself to your preferred tilt angle.
The center M6 screw may be removed for use with a rig requiring a female thread. This lightweight right-side grip is constructed with rosewood and aluminum.
SmallRig 15mm Carbon Fiber Rod Set (9″)
This 15mm Carbon Fiber Rod Set from SmallRig lets you attach 15mm rod-mounted accessories to your rig. These carbon fiber rods are 9″ in length and, with the appropriate baseplate, will conform to the 15mm LWS rod standard for accessory mounting. The carbon fiber construction keeps these rods lightweight, while allowing them to maintain the rigidity necessary for accessory support.
