Temporary Cheaper Alternative Cinevate Uno?

Hello All!

I plan to purchase a Cinevate Uno in the future but currently am saving up for it. I was wondering if there are any cheaper generic versions that can be a stand in until I can afford the real thing.

Thanks a lot for your help!

BushHawk

Check out BushHawk: BushHawk - Home

I'm having a hard time with their website, but from what I can see, their products should offer similar capabilities at a much lower price.

Good luck!

Be careful with the Bushhawk guys. I just received a pro kit yesterday and it arrived with parts missing, parts broken, and a trigger that does not work. So, how does a kit that messed up get by the inspector? Is there an inspector?

I would like to follow up on my last post concerning Bushhawk. I contacted the company about the defective kit I received and was contacted by Dave Hedrick within a few hours. He was very apolgetic and sent out a new kit to replace the defective one next day air, no charge, and even included a free goodie or two. It arrived today and everything works great. The part I originally received was bad but this company is awsome in standing by their products.

Does the trigger work with the Canon? How comfortable is the BushHawk if you hold the camera by the body? What I want to know is if it is possible to not use the grip but just the shoulder piece to act as an extra point of stability while shooting. Is there a place to attach a monopod under the BushHawk? A monopod and a shoulder pad would lock the camera into both the ground and your body.

Yes, I use a Canon Rebel for field work becasue it's small and light but I can get a cable for my Canon pro cameras as well as Nikons.

How comfortable is the BushHawk if you hold the camera by the body?
Comfort is very subjective.

The shoulder piece need to be attached to the grip in order to attach to the camera.

Yes the bottom of the handle is treaded.

Thanks, Gene. I like the idea of using a simple shoulder rig, but I usually need to keep my hands on the camera so the trigger won't get used all that much with me. I find I frequently make adjustments with the dial and wheel so holding the camera by the body is preferable. I'm just concerned that the handle would be too far off-axis from the shoulder mount to make this work. On the Zacuto Target Shooter, the mount connects near the right side of the camera so one would be pushing straight back from the handle through the shoulder pad.

Bushhawk Question:

I know you need to connect the stock to the grip, but my question is, do you need to actually hold the grip with your hand, or can you just hold the camera instead?
