Opteka 4lb Brick CounterWeight
May 11, 2012


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 [...]

April 24, 2012


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 [...]

Express35 RigX Preorders Open
May 10, 2011


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 [...]

TrusMT DSLR Gear Crosses Over
March 31, 2011


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, [...]

December 27, 2010

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 [...]

You won’t find many of my DIY’s using PVC, but here’s one I think is worth mentioning.

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 [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]
