As some of you might have noticed, this blog went a few days without an update. I was busy attending CES – Las Vegas. Since there were several days of event coverage and many hours of walking, we needed to travel light – super light. The area was sooo crowded with what felt like hundreds [...]

Looks like Ikan has a new product in their website called the ‘Recoil’ for Camera Stabilization. Let me emphasize that I like Ikan, I really really really like Ikan. They make some really good products and I like how they are really stepping into the DSLR accessories market, but this ‘Recoil’ product might not be [...]

First of all, I want to apologize if i’m not very responsive to many of the comments or emails that come in. I’m pretty overwhelmed with the response this blog has, and being a one man show, i’m trying my best! I’m an average guy, with an 80 mile commute (one way) in the mornings, [...]

Tiffen iPhone Stabilizer

Yeah you know Tiffen and Steadicam. The guys who make the Steadicam Vest and Merlin stabilizer I love so much. They got something going that includes a swap meet and special stuff you can’t buy from Retailers. I’m hoping one of those items will be the Tiffen iPhone Steadicam Stabilizer called ‘Smoothee’. I’m [...]

12May Camera Hand Grip


Tweet

I saw these grips a while back online, but thought they would be something very tiny and not very useful. Turns out these things are quite large and the company who makes it also designs Gun and Rifle type stabilizers. I have yet to see a DSLR + Viewfinder with this handle, but thinking that [...]

12May TuperHero DIY Shoulder Rig : Tuper-Rig


Tweet

Fred C. over at TuperHero.com is working on a DIY shoulder rig I believe he’s calling the “Tuper-Rig”. Based on the RedRock EyeSpy shoulder mount, he’s cleverly used some type of L-Bracket to serve as both an offset (for lcd viewfinders), as well as height leveling. Not easily seen in these photos, he’s using 2 [...]

25Mar $20.00 DIY offset Shoulder Rig for DSLR – CheesyRig


Tweet

I was bored, collected a few parts from Home Depot and decided to hack up a quick DIY Offset Shoulder rig. Since DSLR’s don’t have the flip out LCD option, placement of the ViewFinder needs to be offset. I also added some weights to the rear to help balance things out and it won’t feel [...]

I’m not saying this DIy shoulder mount should be used with the new DSLR video cameras, but if you’re rockin’ a Canon HV20 / HV30 / Vixia HD camcorder or similiar sized cameras, this is a simple solution to getting great steady shots for under $20.00 dollars.
I was asked if I had any ideas for [...]
