Review: The Cine City - "Sliders" shoulder support

I was so happy with this shoulder support I got, I decided to create a YouTube review http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2djoCdraSY. First time I've ever filmed myself and boy am I glad I'm behind the camera.

A few cons are: the quick release plate wasn't compatible with Bogen 501/503 plate, its kinda of difficult to set down, and as a result some of the parts can loosen due to the weight of the camera especially on the qr bracket. But a lot of these issues are minor compared to how much easier it makes hand holding the camera. If I had only known about it I could have save myself the arm fatigue and unsteady shots it caused.

Yeah this India company is like the China of the shoulder support world.
They make copies of pretty much everyone's products.

Some seem to be decent and some not so good knock offs.

I just looked at the DvRig website, yeah now I can see where they got the design from. I bought it on ebay before I knew it was a copy cat and got it because of the price and I liked the design better than Red Rock's micro shoulder support. If your the owner of DvRig I can understand your feelings on the matter.
