One of the unique features of the FS7 is the SmartGrip provided with the camera. It allows users to adjust zoom, initiate record and operate the menus without removing their hand from the grip. It does however have a few ergonomic drawbacks. First of all, adjusting the reach of the handle involves the use of a screwdriver. This can be awkward in many situations, especially when out in the field. Additionally, to change the angle of the handle requires users to loosen the rosette which can take up precious time.
The FS7RH addresses both of these issues, seamlessly combining with the original SmartGrip, with the one-time install taking less than a minute.
Like the standard SmartGrip, Shape's FS7RH attaches to the camera or any separate base-plate which uses a Hirth rosette. When attached to the camera, users are able to adjust the reach of the handle using a single wing-nut, which can be operated by hand. It also incorporates Shape's push button technology, allowing users to alter the angle within seconds. This is especially useful for docking the handle along the side of the camera for storage, or for operation from the back of the camera.
