IDX Technology's new Shoulder Stabilisation System for handheld cameras offers users the extra power of IDX’s high-capacity Endura batteries.
It is designed for use with camcorders and HD DSLRs and is based around an A-CA74E shoulder adaptor base, on which the camera position can be adjusted for balance. It has a cushioned shoulder pad and an adjustable rear battery plate for attaching an optional P-V series plate, which allows the connection of a V-Mount battery.
The A-HG74 handgrip support option has three cushioned, adjustable handles, two at the front and a third at the rear to add support to the chest area. The A-HG74 has an integrated tripod adaptor for attaching the system to a standard tripod.
There are three optional V-Mount plates that take the battery’s 14.4v output and convert it to: 5v or 7.3v for a range of Panasonic, JVC and Canon models; 12v for the Sony EX series; or 8.4v for other Sony camera models (it is pictured fitted to a JVC GY-HM100). There are seven optional DC cables that connect from the regulated D-Tap of the P-V plate and plug into the camera battery channel or power input terminal. Each P-V plate has a second D-Tap output for lights or audio accessories.
