    Alternatives & Add-Ons:

    This unit is specifically designed for Director’s to comfortably hold a wireless video monitor on set.  A monitor (usually five to seven inch) is mounted on the front.  A large camera battery is mounted on the back (unlike the photo, ours takes a V-Mount battery).  The battery plate and the monitor mount pivot around the same axle, but they are separate plates.  A wireless video receiver can be fastened to the other side of the battery plate.  So you have battery, receiver and monitor all nicely integrated and powered together.  There are rubber handles to hold the unit, as well as a shoulder strap to let it hang when not in use.  There are a number of these types of units on the market, we bought the Shape brand for three reasons:

    1-Shape’s patented handles can be repositioned simply by pushing a spring loaded button.  That let’s the operator move them to use as a tilting support on a table. It also allows one to prop the unit against one’s rock hard Director abs 😁

    2-It has a receiver for a light stand if you get tired of holding it

    3-Shape is a Canadian company that makes quality gear
