F3 Shoulder Kit
This shoulder kit is designed for Sony's PMW-F3 camcorder. It includes an adjustable F3 reinforcement plate, a standard shoulder plate kit, one cable clip, a pivoting plate with pivot latch clip. The version without the pivoting plate does not include a cable clip.
The shoulder plate is a comfortable, thick leather-wrapped foam that allows for many hours of continuous operation.
The pivoting plate allows the mounting of wireless drop boxes, a variety of battery plates and other kinds of camera accessories. The pivoting feature allows the weight of a battery to tilted back to counterbalance the weight of the camera. A typical battery would project about 20cm / 8" behind the back of the camera operator.
The adjustable F3 adapter plate allows the camera to be moved forward, back or to either side depending on the operator's preferences.
This kit is compatible with most tripod quick release plates. Those with Betacam type tripods with a wedge pocket are encouraged to try the DM Accessories VCT-WEDGE.
