That's correct

I think most people are posting a general budget range and do not really mean the exact amount.

Fair enough. Danny, I was noticing that the DV Rig Jr has a couple of features not on the Tiffen Steady-Stick which I have. I don't understand "Walking shocks Damping" feature you mentioned though, could you explain what it is or how it works?

It basically uses a spring loaded pole so that instead of just transferring all motion like a pole would, the spring compresses and absorbs the motion. People say it's pretty good, it's no Steadicam, but it's a very good shoulder rig.

Thats a fair description of the suspention pod used with all our supports.

The Junior rig is not a "shoulder brace" its a hip supported suspention pod
with a fluid head that makes a huge difference.

I received the Varizoom VZ-1SHOOTER Friday and played around with it today. Maybe I don't have it adjusted properly, but it seems to make my arm more fatigued. The weight of the camera is still in the front and the shoulder brace is not doing much good. It needs a bit of weight on the back of it in my opinion, which I'm going to add to see if that stabalizes it a bit.

I'm still working with adjustments to see if I can get it more comfortable. I also have the Spider Brace on order and will compare the 2 when I get it. It all comes down to personal preference.
