Schneider Optics just announced that Chrosziel – one of the most respected builders of professional cine and digital lens accessories – has released a new mounting solution that is purposely built to work comfortably and efficiently with the Sony FS7 camera. The Light Weight Support (LWS) 401-FS7 perfectly balances the camera for handheld shoulder-mount shooting.The baseplate features a slim design with a sturdy and ergonomic shoulder pad that slides into a comfortable location for balance of the LWS on the shoulder. The system also offers two 15mm rods 205mm long, with a threaded insert for extension rods. The integrated Hirth rosettes provide mounting points for accessories such as Chrosziel Leather Handgrips. An integrated V-mount reliably affixes the camera to most quick-lock plates.
The LWS mounts to the camera base at several points for secure positioning. It can also be combined with the Chrosziel 19mm DigiCine Bridgeplate 401-F235, to provide support for large zoom lenses.
Chrosziel products are manufactured in Germany and exclusively distributed in the United States by Schneider Optics. The list price for the 401-FS7 is $833.00 and it’s shipping now.
