Shape supports get UK distributor

Prokit has become the exclusive UK distributor for Canadian camera support manufacturer Shape. Their products are built by cameramen, for cameramen, and include an evolving range of shoulder mounts, handles and supports, all of which are making their first appearance in the UK.

The Shape Sumo (pictured right) is a simple, comfortable, low-cost shoulder support for DSLR cameras and camcorders.

The Composite Grip range (pictured top) 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, spotlights, LCD screens, remote controls, microphones, etc.

All shoulder models feature quick-release handle angle locks; each handle can rotate individually through 360ยบ. Simply push and hold the button located at the articulation, and rotate the handle to find a comfortable shooting angle.

The range also includes waist supports, counterbalance weights and accessory holders.
