All in one monopod, stabilizer, shoulder support and high hat: the K-Tek ProShot now available from P+S !
>> Available in 3 separate models, the ProShot can accommodate cameras weighting up to 9kg - there is an adapter plate for mounting DSLRs. Featuring quick release, the ProShot provides for monopod. stabilizer, shoulder support and also functions as a high hat.

The K-Tek four-in-one rig that cost-effectively answers the support needs for the feature, reality, documentary, commercial, and action sports videographer. The multifunctional ProShot may be instantly configured into a Shoulder Rig, Monopod, Stabilizer or High-hat, tool free, without removing the camera from the systems baseplate. Its versatility and functionality offer a wide array of creative uses and set-ups both in studio and on location.

Ideal for digital camera setups weighing up to 9 kg, the ProShot has a steadying ballast weight to offset larger loads. At the heart of the patent pending system is the integral 1.7kg hexweight that is positioned in a variety of configurations to provide just the right amount of mass to balance the camera package. Changing from one mode to the next is quick and intuitive.

  • Mono pod (140 cm)
  • Stabilizer with integrated hex-weight
  • High-Hat
  • Shoulder Support
  • Handle 360 adjustable
  • Weight: 2.9 kg

In Shoulder Rig mode, the system is in its most compact configuration. ProShots thickly padded neoprene cushion is positioned on the shoulder, the Hexweight is positioned behind the user to optimize the camera balance, and the camera can be moved forward and back along the shoulder or by extending the telescoping tubes. At the front, a set of Motocross handgrips ensures a solid and comfortable grip.

ProShot can transform into a smartly weighted 1.46m tall Monopod in seconds without tools. The camera is adjusted via the systems swivel/tilt head, the five telescoping sections are extended, and the Hexweight becomes a weighted foot. The Monopods height can be adjusted with the simple K-Tek clamping system and the weighted foot gives the monopod a stable base without the top heaviness of traditional monopods.

In closed position ProShot becomes a handy High-hat by simply setting it down on its weighted base and front handgrips. The camera position can be optimized by adjusting the swivel / tilt head and telescoping tubes.

For moving or gliding shots, ProShot quickly achieves its Stabilizer Mode by holding the rig vertically and adjusting the swivel/tilt head to level out the camera. The ProShot handles can easily unlock and lock into different positions around the rig. In this mode the handgrips are horizontal and guide the camera rig as the Hexweight below helps smooth the cameras motion.

While rugged enough for no fuss work in damp conditions or rough terrain, this water resistant support is also compact and lightweight (6.5-lbs/2.9-kg including Hexweight) for easy transport.

Each ProShot comes with K-Teks own swivel/tilt monopod head (attached with a 3/8 screw) and removable quick release baseplate. To insure compatibility with all industry standard camcorders and DSLRs a and a 3/8 camera screw is included.
