(March 12, 2015) Schneider Optics announces that Chrosziel, leading maker of professional cine and digital lens accessories, introduces an elegant mounting solution, purpose-built to contour to Sony PXW-FS7 cameras. The new Light Weight Support 401-FS7 provides optimum balance of the camera when shoulder mounted.
The new baseplate features an unparalleled slim design with a sturdy and ergonomic shoulder pad that simply slides into a comfortable location for optimal balance of the LWS on the shoulder. The system also offers (2) 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 LWS 401-FS7 is now shipping. For more information contact visit www.schneideroptics.com
