The Manfrotto SYMPLA Shoulder Pad (MVA511W) provides a solid, comfortable point of contact with the operator’s body for long periods of stable shooting without undue physical strain. The ergonomically-shaped soft rubber pad is quickly and easily attached and detached from the SYMPLA rods via its integrated Universal Mount. It can also be used upside down using the stomach or chest as the point of contact for mid-level shots. In addition, this method works very well when used in combination with the SYMPLA Fig Rig or when using the SYMPLA rig with a monopod to reduce lateral movements. Furthermore, there is a 3/8-inch thread at the rear of the shoulder pad for mounting optional counterweights.
This is to balance the load of your camera and/or lens setup, preventing strain when holding a front-heavy load for long periods.
