Two questions:

I've owned the DVRig Jr for some time and use it with my Z1U. Does the pod that came with it fit with the MultiRig Stabilizer? In other words, if I buy the MultiRig Stabilizer do I essentially own a MultiRig Stabilizer Plus?

I own the Manfrotto 521 Pro Lanc remote. Will it fit on the Stabilizer handle without modification?

Thanks

No, its a diferent support pod. however, when you order the MultiRig Stabilizer
ask for a free Jr adaptor and you will get an adptor to nonvert your Jr pod to
into a Multi Pod.

On the other hand it is not at all easy to mount certain lanc controllers to work with the multirig.
Hi Zsolt,
That is why I asked in the thirst place, with the JR -that is highly portable when not in use- I think you can. All I want, is a shooting situation that is like a shoulder cam. Support for the weight, make switching between tripod- and shoulder use and free-hand low shot fast and easy. I use those cam placed buttons during the shoot a lot! You have to.

I prefer manual or directlens controllers, or a horizontal placed remote. And I like to use the viewfinder. Those LCD screens work hard in full sun (even WITH sunscreen).

A simple question, everything it can do more is a bonus. As you know I'm going for quality, not so sure to go with the multirig. But my wristpain is asking for a solution.

I was in The DV Shop in Toronto today checking out the Multi Stabilizer. The Jr adaptor in stock would not work with my DVRig Jr pod. Has that Jr pod been updated since I bought it? If not, is there another Jr adaptor I should be ordering? I want to use the pod I own with the Mult Stabilizer.

Thanks
