Small Camera Chest Pod Video Shooter
March 22, 2011


Tweet

Reader Jip shares a camera support find. Taking a few tips from the big guys about Camera Shoulder Shooter designs, this ‘Chest Pod’ acts like a shoulder stock or placed on the knee as a monopod. There’s a sling strap included so i’m not sure if it can be worn in any other configuration. Pricing [...]

Spider Steady – Multi Config Camera Rig
March 12, 2011


Tweet

Looks like a few new eBay sellers have picked up this unusual camera support item and now there’s some promotional videos online. Folds up, folds out, with extremely large (too large?) handles that can configured into different style stabilizers such as a Shoulder rig, Fig Rig, DSLR Cage. Doesn’t look like it can be positioned [...]

DIY Mini Shoulder Brace + Mini Tripod
February 16, 2011


Tweet

I love me some RedRock Micro gear, but unfortunately i’m just one of those poor souls who can’t afford even their entry level stuff. As seen in the image below, this is just one bundle in the line up of RedRock Micro’s Nano rigs called the Running Man. Pretty solid piece of gear that doesn’t [...]

January 3, 2011


Tweet

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 [...]

Hands on with Opteka CXS-1 Shoulder Support
December 27, 2010


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 [...]

The infamous $24 dollar Shoulder Support
November 11, 2010


Tweet

This $24 dollar shoulder rig just won’t quit. Well, we may have to change the name as the popularity of this cheap plastic design gains popularity, the price has since inflated. This unit also is being sold under different names, but I have never heard of any one designed better than the other. There’s an [...]

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.

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 [...]

Unusual Shoulder Rest for Cameras
August 25, 2010


Tweet

Yup, that’s the official name ‘Shoulder Rest for Cameras’ according to DealExtreme. Thanks to Brett for sharing this unusual support thing. I’m not sure if it’s DSLR worthy, but for small shooters like the Sony NEX or light four-thirds cameras it might make a slight difference as a shooter rig. Telescoping adjustable rod, expandable claw [...]

Express35 Gear Review by Josef + Special Deal
July 30, 2010


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 [...]

DIY DSLR Rig -Johan Plug Wire Clamps
July 19, 2010


Tweet

Above is the famous little photo sent in by Johan about his DIY DSLR rig using Automotive Plug Wire Clamps. I originally posted this article: http://cheesycam.com/diy-dslr-rig-four-thirds-rig/. I really liked the look of this thing, but couldn’t decide if it were going to be beefy enough to support an actual DSLR. It’s hard to visualize the [...]

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 [...]
