FS5, FS5M2 Shoulder Mount

SHAPE designed a baseplate that would fit with all the key features of the camera. Built small and lightweight, this baseplate is a perfect solution for this camera. 

Key Features:

  • Also compatible with the Sony PXW-FS5M2
  • 1/4-20 treaded holes for side mounting
  • 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 captive screw to secure the camera position both rotation and translation
  • 4x 1/4-20 and 2x 3/8 holes under the baseplate for tripod mounting
  • Rods are positioned to reach optical center
  • Rubber pads on top of the baseaplate to cushion camera base
  • A removable bracket for METABONES® adaptor can be installed (FS5MA)
  • Lightweight and solid
  • CNC aluminum 
  • Patent red push button 360 degree QUICK HANDLE ROD BLOCK (HAND5), for fast set-up adjustments
  • Ergonomic and compact padded shoulder pad and back pad with 1/4-20 threaded hole to attach accessory

Included with the baseplate; one (1) ¼-20 and one (1) 3/8-16 captive screw to secure the camera’s position in translation and rotation so it won’t move. 

At the top of the baseplate there are rubber pads so that the camera doesn’t sit directly on the aluminum.  The baseplate fits 15mm standard rods, and the rods are secured with a red ratchet knob screw. On the side, you have ¼-20 threaded holes for mounting options. 

Under the baseplate, we added four (4) ¼-20 and two (2) 3/8-16 threaded holes that allow you to attach a tripod plate. To reduce the weight of the baseplate, we removed excess aluminium from the bottom of the plate during the machining process. 


We also designed a removable support bracket for a METABONES® adapter (FS5MA) that can be added on the baseplate to support the weight and remove stress to the camera lens mount. Fixed with 2 screws in front of the baseplate, it can be removed when not needed. For a precise positioning, we designed the bracket with a 3mm vertical adjustment to make sure it’s well positioned for the best support. The baseplate includes a set of 15mm 10 inch rods.

It’s perfect for drone and gimbal application, and it’s designed with lightweight system for mounting any standard 15 mm accessories.

HAND5 Quick Handle Rod Bloc

In addition to the baseplate, this shoulder mount includes the Quick Handle Rod Bloc (HAND5) with our patent red push button technology. With the push button, you simply press with your thumb to adjust the angle of the handle. When you release the push button, the handle locks in place. It’s fast, easy and solid. The handle and the baseplate is attached to a pair of 15mm 18 inches rods (15TUBE18), as well as an ergonomic and compact padded shoulder pad (SHPAD3) and a back pad with a ¼ thread to attach different accessories. (PAD1).

All the accessories for the FS5 are compatible with each other. We proudly make our products in Canada, and we offer a lifetime warranty on all CNC machined parts. Our products are solid and durable.
