Next Level Comfort & Airflow
The shoulder pad & hand grip have been created using Digital Light Synthesis (DLS), a process pioneered by Carbon that uses oxygen-permeable optics & programmable liquid resins to form a unique matrix structure with an infinite number of density zones.
The open structure allows air to naturally flow through, evaporating sweat to keep the operator cool. Made for long days on set, operators will experience a new level of comfort & freedom to move. Extremely durable & sturdy, capable of being used in any extreme conditions, the pad is easy to clean with water and UV resistant
The included mounting bracket allows the pad to connect to the rear of the LeftField 3 15mm LWS baseplate, with the riser providing clearance when using an ARRI standard balance plate.
Tripod to Handheld in Seconds
The riser features a guided track to align the baseplate with an end stop that provides tactile feedback to the operator that the baseplate is on the riser. The safety wedge prevents the baseplate from sliding off accidentally.
Unlike VCT systems, the KASBAH System works on any ARRI standard dovetail removing any flex or play due to tolerances between the wedge & receiver plates. Going back to handheld operation is as simple as opening up the lever and lifting off the camera.
Alternatively, the LeftField 3 baseplate or any other baseplate with an ARRI dovetail clamp can dock on top of the shoulder pad, making it compatible with third party manufacturers.
Battery Plates & Counterbalance
Attaching the rear 15mm bracket extends the mounting options even further. Supporting battery plates and other accessories which also serves as counter balance for larger camera builds.
The arms feature 3x 3/8″ anti-twist & 5x 1/4″ threaded points which can be used to mount articulating arms for monitors & other accessories.
Precision Milled, Not Stamped
Each rosette has been CNC precision cut from high-grade stainless steel. Compared to stamped rosettes, ours offer higher engagement & maximum compatibility that won’t slip.
