A DIY Rig

Manfrotto does have the FigRig in his program, but I have a second hobby: designing and making things for whatever purpose.
So I made one for myself and a few for other people, who were interested. At the end of the line, the Rig was not so much cheaper than the FigRig.
I called my version the JoRig.
In the picture the Rig is stationed in an (aluminum colored) stand. The Rig itself is black.
On the Rig you can identify a Canon XA20 camera, which is fiitted on the Rig with a Manfrotto quick release plate,a Comer LED light and a Varizoom VZ STEALTH lanc controler.
I use the Rig mainly on places where I have to be mobile, for instance on parties. The benifit of the use of the Rig is that your images are more stable, even with the perfect stabiliser most cameras have today.
