We started with two DSLR shoulder rigs and “frankensteined” them together into one rig we really like. This rig is our favorite way to stay portable and handheld, and the rails let you mount a follow focus without trouble. The counterweight in the back helps make long takes easier, and the rig is fully adjustable to fit any shooting style and size.
For DSLR and mirrorless cameras like the T3i and GH4, this is definitely the best way to get your handheld video to look good.
If you like, we can add a standard Manfrotto quick-release so you can easily transition to a tripod, and add some mounting hardware so you can mount your monitor or audio gear.
This swing-away matte box rides on standard 15mm rails and is adjustable for a variety of configurations. This is a perfect tool for DSLR and mirrorless shooters, but works with other cameras as well. It has two rotating filter trays (accepting 4×5.65 or 4×4 filters), a french flag, two side flags, and 4 O-rings to match to nearly any diameter lens.
We don’t use it on all our shoots, but when we do, it always leaves an impression. Consider bringing an AC on shoots where you’ll be making lots of adjustments in the field..
