Wooden Camera has just unveiled the Shoulder Rig V3, a major update to Wooden Camera’s popular Shoulder Rig at a lower price point which makes it even more appealing budget-friendly option for filmmakers.
The Shoulder Rig V3 weight has been reduced by 10% for the Pro and 18% for the Base compared to Shoulder Rig V2 and the shoulder pad is now larger and more durable with an integrated kickstand for setting the rig down. The Pro version additionally features arms that telescope from 4.5 in (11.5cm) to 6.7 inches (17cm) and rotation points to widen or narrow grip spacing.
Both the Base and Pro models of the Shoulder Rig v3 retain the best features from the former model including an ARRI standard dovetail and rosettes, a NATO standard crossbar for lateral left and right adjustments plus threaded holes for attaching accessories like monitors, rod clamps, cheese plates, battery mounts, and a choice of black rubber or brown leather handgrip options.
Shoulder Rig v3 is available for pre-order now through the Wooden Camera website and through their dealership network and will begin shipping the first week of May selling for $499 and $995 for the Base and for the Pro version respectively.
