DIY Adjustable Offset for Cheap Shoulder Support
January 3, 2011
Sorry things have been quiet here, but i’m working on packing up for CES (Las Vegas) this week. I want to travel light, so I minimized the amount of parts on a lightweight shoulder rig setup. It’s mostly Express35 rails and clamps on the Cheap Shoulder Support by going straight inline, but I still really wanted an ‘offset’ for the LCD ViewFinder. I just happened to look through random parts in the studio and this Macro Rail works awesome! It’s an all metal bracket that adjusts through gears and can be locked into position. These rails are designed to mount your camera to slide forward, back, or mount the camera for side to side adjustments. Now I have mine mounted under the camera, but if you choose to mount your entire set of rails over the adapter, that will also work. Why didn’t anyone think of this before? It’s perfect!!
