I returned the item right away. I will however give them an A+ for sarcasm and poor business skills.

Habby Cam shoulder mount

I bought the Habby Cam shoulder mount through Adorama for use with Sony NX5. Seems to work well. Setup and adjustment to use eye piece viewer took me about 10min. I found it important to get the mount adjusted to set the shoulder brace firmly against my shoulder to avoid having to much weight at my left hand. I have only used the device a short time, but so far I am pleased with purchase.

It really did not seem to do much to balance the camera, instead it added more weight which had to be supported by the hand. I expected the shoulder brace would take some weight off, but even with the camera slid all the way back towards me it did not seem to do that. I researched prior to buying it and really came up with hardly any user reviews or info at all, just someone on another forum commenting on their lack of professionalism. I was able to return it and did get my money back without a hassle which was good. I did however receive sarcastic unprofessional emails from them regarding the return. I also feel their lack of general business skills through the entire process needed a lot of work. I felt like I was buying this from a street vendor rather than a company who is representing themselves as "an industry standard for over a decade."

Are their products similar to the habbycam that would work?

I need a device for my NXCAM to transform it into a shoulder cam for ENG/Event Camera work for a sporting team.

Habbycam looks good but Chad's remarks have put me off them.

Have you found anything else Chad?
