The base of this rig features a Dual Manfrotto ARCA Baseplate, which allows you to use either systems’ quick release plate or the included two-in-one Manfrotto/ARCA Plate.
This baseplate can be removed when needed and other baseplates or dovetails can be mounted to the main plate of this shoulder rig via 1/4″-20 threads.

When used with the Tilta Standard Dovetail, you can quickly transition from a tripod or other support system to this lightweight shoulder rig.
The included velcro shoulder pad can also be independently adjusted, allowing users to obtain the correct balance of the camera system when it is shoulder mounted.
The adjustable, extendable rosette arms allow you to adjust the length and angle of the hand grips. The extension arms feature a 1/4″-20 thread on the arm itself, allowing you to mount an external monitor via an articulating arm. The benefit of doing this is that you can mount your monitor further away from the camera than if you when mounting to the camera body directly.
The rosette bridge can rotate a full 360 degrees, allowing for this rig to be quickly folded up for transportation.
The 15mm LWS Rod Mount on the back of the rig supports a pair of 15mm rods and rod-based accessories such as various battery plates. This helps provide power for your camera and balances the rig on your shoulder as it can shift the center of gravity closer to you which makes it easier and more comfortable to operate for longer periods of time.
In the back of the rig, you will also find a NATO Rail which allows you to mount counterweights and other accessories via a small adapter plate.
This NATO Adapter will also allow you to mount the included Rear Shoulder Support Pad which provides an additional point of contact when operating.
The Tilta Lightweight Shoulder Rig weighs 1.7kg / 3.74 lb and the main components are made out of aviation-grade aluminum alloy.
