CinemaStyle shoulder support

Okay everyone. I've just put together the shoulder support I had written about in my other threads. I had gotten offers from people who were interested in purchasing the system I had done.So I have made a prototype of one that I am or will eventually sell. Take a look at it and see if it sweetens your taste buds. The link is Here: http://www.homebuiltstabilizers.com/...cessories.html

Then click on the link that says CinemaStyle.

We really need more accessories developed by end users like yourself. Stuff that's really usable.

I'm glad you're eager Bryan. Like I mentioned on the page; at least a month or two from now. I have to get some other specifications. Also, I want to get at least a minimum of 10 orders before doing the first batch. Remember, I'm doing this all by myself apart from one small amount of machining, that will be made by my machinist. I will also give´an exact pricing including t´he postage/handling charge for both the US and Europe. Stay tuned.

looks realy interesting

What is the shoulder mount made of? What is the weight? Another question I have is, if im holding onto the handles... How can i press record and stop, not to mention zooming. I'm a newbee to filming, so be gentle. It looks realy interesting though.

Hi Jason. The mount is made out of light steel weighing in at about 1kg. Well Jason, in order to operate the zoom,stop etc. while holding the rig you'll have to get a LANC and attach it to the handle. I'm in the process of making an adapter so that would be possible.

I will put it up on the site when I finalize everything but it'll be somewhere i the neighborhood of between 150-180 dollars. I'm still coming up with new ideas to be added.
