“Time is Money”
Converting from handheld to sticks literally takes 15 seconds by ripping off the shoulder pad where the Baseplate already has a mini touch and go built into it. This baby just clicks right in to your head, and all you do is remove the handles, pull the back long weight off, and add the Anton Bauer gold plate weight to counter balance your fluid head.
“A Rock Solid Rig”
Have you ever been frustrated with spinning handles and never getting them to be rock solid? Well, what Letus and I did was to square off the rods so that they could not possibly spin. We made them T shaped so that you can fly them up high like you were grabbing a Mattebox or down low to feel more like a traditional handheld rig. It will work for you no matter what your preference might be.
“How I Use Shoulder Based Camera Systems”
What I love so much about handheld is the ability to tell a story from point A to B to C to D without cuts. Panning around and moving with the scene’s blocking is so important in telling stories that demand that feel and intensity.
“The Power of the V-Lock”
What this base plate and shoulder pad system does is enable you to convert quickly from one shooting configuration to another effortlessly, which saves time, adds shots and gives you the ability to put it up on the screen. This is the whole reason behind the MCS 2.0 system. Saving time saves money, which in turn expands your vision.
There are plenty of manufacturers that are taking these small plastic boxes and turning them into an Alexa sized camera system with all the SDI outputs, XLR inputs, power ports, etc. We want it to be an Alexa when it can be, but we also want it to be small and nimble like a DSLR, so that it can get into unique places, with all the necessary support to make a movie, not just how it came out of the bubble wrap. It still needs to function, needs follow focus, on-board monitors, MDR’s, etc.
Having a camera system that can be as big or as small as you like is the power of the platform and why we built it. If you look at other manufacturer price points, they spend 1/20th on the rig, compared to the selling price. We spend half of what it costs to make it. It seems pretty simple.
