At IBC Phil Arntz interviewed Canadian company Shape about their new cages for the Canon XC10 and Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q and 7Q+. The form fitting 7Q/7Q+ cage keep can be transformed into a more hand holdable directors monitor with the addition of the company’s side handles.
The company were also showing their new ISEE+ 2-axis handheld gimbal for cameras like the Sony a7S and Panasonic GH4. This has the ability to mount onto a shoulder rig to create stabilised off-the-shoulder shots. Unfortunately the model they had on the show floor had been damaged and we weren’t able to see it working. I’m very curious to see what sort of results a 2-axis system like this can create when mounted on the shoulder.
