The new Pocket Series line of products transform from a ‘battery-grip sized’ block into common camera tools such as table top dolly, portable slider, stabilizing handles, shoulder stock with rails, and table stand.

11May Opteka 4lb Brick CounterWeight


Tweet

I purchased a few Vinyl covered Scuba Dive weights to be used as a DIY counterweight on a Gini Rig (seen here), and also ended up also using them for the DIY Crane (seen here). It’s much more expensive than basic round Gym weights, but they are smaller and have a much better aesthetic appeal [...]

24Apr Express35 Inline Shoulder Rig Discount


Tweet

Express35 knocks $100 dollars off the Inline Shoulder Rig today. The inline rig gives you room to work with a monitor or EVF off to the side while keeping the majority of the weight closer to your shoulder instead of way out in front of you (which can wear out your arms). The 8″ rods [...]

10May Express35 RigX Preorders Open


Tweet

Not sure how many of you remember this article I posted a while back about the RigX bundle from Express35. I asked Chris to put something like this together to work with the cheap shoulder support to offset rails. The offset has been revised since the ‘prototype’ version I received, to add more functionality.
It’s [...]

31Mar TrusMT DSLR Gear Crosses Over


Tweet

I’ve been pointed out to this TrusMT company for quite some time. I didn’t bother attempting to decipher the language on the main website and just believed they were just retailers for Letus equipment. Turns out I was wrong, and they are stamping TrusMT brand logos over what ‘looks like’ a Letus Aluminum Hawk VF, [...]

27Dec Hands on with Opteka CXS-1 Shoulder Support


Tweet

The Opteka CXS-1 is a fairly inexpensive ready built video camera shoulder support rig. Besides the obvious mount for the camera, the stage has a few extra mounting points if you want to get creative and add some extra accessory brackets. The Opteka was designed for cameras up to 20lbs (so they say), but no [...]

23Oct DIY PVC Shoulder Rig Project Timelapsed


Tweet

John Hwang decided to tackle Hal’s DIY PVC shoulder support and provides a timelapse look into the project. With not too much more than a simple Hacksaw, this project was completed right in the living room floor. There’s a fun test run at the end complete with sound effects. Of course there’s nothing to show [...]

22Oct DIY PVC Camera Shoulder Support


Tweet

You won’t find many of my DIY’s using PVC, but here’s one I think is worth mentioning. Submitted by Hal Robertson, I think it’s a project just about anyone can tackle in an afternoon and an ice cream budget. If you’re like me, they have the exact same parts available in at least Copper Piping, [...]

30Jul Express35 Gear Review by Josef + Special Deal


Tweet

I showed off the limited edition $99 Dollar shoulder shooter before, but I think this may be the first official review regarding the larger Express35.com shoulder support rig. Great job Josef! These aren’t designed to be Steadicams as a walking running type rig, but Josef seems to have that movement down and it looks very [...]

13Jun Cheaper Shoulder Rigs Hong Kong


Tweet

click image
If you thought those ‘Gini Rigs’ coming out of Korea were cheap, check out the new rigs showing up on eBay coming out of Hong Kong. Gini Rigs started inflating prices, I’m thinking to meet demands once they became popular. Made from CNC’d machined aluminum, black matte finish, 90 degree rod clamps, adjustable handles, [...]

23May Kick a$$ DSLR offset Shoulder Rig


Tweet

click image
The design itself isn’t totally new. There’s been similar designs out there for years, but this shoulder rig does come with a special offset type mount for DSLRs. It also has adjustable mounts to align to different body types. Unlike the cheaper models, this shoulder pad area comes with different slots somewhat ‘cheesy plate’ style [...]

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 [...]

12Feb $24.00 Shoulder Support for DSLR Cameras


Tweet

There are two things i’m playing with in this video. The first is the LCDVF from jag35.com which is a View Finder adapter that magnifies your lcd so that you can clearly see what’s in focus or not. (Similar to Z-Finder by Zacuto, but cheaper). It came with two mounts which work great for my [...]
