Heavy Weight Construction
Constructed from 1.25 Pounds of Solid Steel then 1/4-20 Threaded and Power Coated Flat Black for a durable finish. Made in USA
Multiple Mounting Options
The Weight Kit comes with multiple different mounting options. Use the Accessory Shoe and 1/4-20 Flashner to mount the weight to the rear of the Scorpion Handle, or use the 1/4-20 Mounting Knob to attach the weight to the Scorpion base plate.
Weight it Down
By adding a counter weight to your Scorpion Camera rig you get better stabilization. In this photo we attached the weight to the bottom of the Scorpion EX using our Mounting Knob.
Versatile Mounting Options
The weight can also be used in conjunction with our Accessory Shoe and 1/4-20 Flashner. In this setup the weight is attached to the rear of the Scorpion to act as a counter balance. By displacing the weight of the camera further back it creates a very balanced and stable platform that is incredibly easy to maneuver. This setup is perfect for tracking a moving subject or replicating steadicam like camera moves.
Stabilize Your Shot
The Scorpion Weight is one of the simplest but most important accessories to have in your camera bag. As you switch from heavier to lighter lenses and accessories, you will find it very helpful to counter balance heavier components. The Scorpion weight is an essential piece of equipment for your camera bag.
The Heavy Flyer
When setting the Scorpion up in Flyer Mode Top View it is very helpful to add some additional weight to the Scorpion Base Plate. The additional weight helps a great deal when tracking moving shots and trying to replicate steadicam like movements.
Throw Your Weight Around
Sometimes you just need to throw your weight around, and with the flexibility of the Scorpion platform it's real easy to do. Mount multiple Weights to the Scorpion using the multiple different mounting options. In this setup we have (1) weight mounted to the Base plate and (1) additional weight mounted to the bottom of the handle.
Transform Your Smartphone
The Weight Kit is incredibly helpful when shooting with ultra lightweight smartphones. These tiny little devices now have incredible image quality that is finding its way into more and more productions. Add some weight to your Smartphone to help stabilize your footage for your next shoot.
