Shape have given our broadcast team their first meltdown of the NAB season with the world’s first shoulder mounted gimble. We’ll say that again: Shoulder. Mounted. Gimbal. You may take a moment.
Shape have introduced a world first ahead of NAB 2014: a shoulder-mounted gimbal. Bringing a whole new level of stability to shoulder mounted rig shooting, the ISee gimbals are part of the Shape Shadow series, and have just shot to the top of our must-see list.
There’s particular excitement in the office because these will be perfect with our (whisper it) favourite camera, Canon’s C100. The gimbal movement may well make focus pulling impossible, but the C100 can be paired with a wireless follow focus or, if you’ve bought the recent firmware update, use dual pixel autofocus to ensure you’re still getting the shot you want.
Here’s the pre-release video:
