DOES THE R1 INCLUDE THE GRIP FOR HOLDING MY PHONE?

No, we don't want you to pay twice for the same device. That's why the R1 has been designed as a complementary accessory to the S1 Grip. If you already own the S1 you will be able to mount it on your new R1 Go or Pro for holding your mobile device. If you don't own a Shoulderpod S1 we recomend you to include it in your cart when placing your order.


DOES THE R1 INCLUDE THE MICROPHONES OR THE LIGHTS SHOWN ON THE IMAGES?

No. The microphones, lights, straps, tripods, action cameras or smartphones shown on the images are only for demonstrating what you can do with your R1 Go and R1 Pro. None of them are included with the product.


I ONLY NEED THE WOODEN HANDLE. CAN I BUY IT?

Yes. Many of our customers have been asking for a longer handle for the S1 Grip. You can now order the wooden handle as an accessory and mount it on your S1! It's called the H1.

CAN I BUY OTHER COMPONENTS AS ACCESSORIES?

Yes. The whole concept has been designed as a modular system. You will be able to order all of its parts separately. This will not only help you build your personalized R1 but, best of all, you will have replacements and spare parts so it can last a lifetime.


CAN I MOUNT THE R1 ON ANY STANDARD TRIPOD?

Yes. The mounting plates, the handles and the knobs all include the standard 1/4"-20 tripod thread. This means that you will be able to mount your R1 on any full size or table-top tripod. You will be able to mount your R1 on virtually any other photo or video equipment in the market.  


I ALREADY OWN A TRIPOD MOUNT FOR MY SMARTPHONE FROM ANOTHER BRAND. WILL IT FIT THE R1?

Yes, any smartphone tripod mount or tripod case will fit the R1 as long as it has a 1/4"-20 standard female thread. Actually you can mount any device that has a 1/4"-20 thread. The only limit is the size of the device you want to add. If it's too large, you might not have enough space for mounting it beside your smartphone. 


CAN I USE THE R1 WITH MY DSLR?

Yes. While we have designed the R1 rigs specially thinking on mobile photography and filmmaking, you will also be able to use it with your compact camera, your GoPro or your DLSR. The R1 mounting plate is machined from a solid aluminum plate that will perfectly hold the weight of a DSLR with no problem.

CAN I USE A STRAP FOR HOLDING THE R1?

Yes. We recomend you to use sling-straps like the ones made by Blackrapid,  Carry Speed or Cams-Photo just to mention a few brands. These straps will allow you to hang your setup securely and have your hands free when necessary.
