The Mighty Wondercam mini Rover that i mentioned in my first post os an "upscale" version of a flash bracket. It has some beef to it and can accomodate mics and wireless receivers. It's $50 at B&H. The pricing on this link is canadian but the bottom picture shows what the bracket can do.

There are several inexpensive ones but none that can compare to the mini rover

With a handle like that, it might add stability in some hand-held shots, too: something that has been criticized in the PDX. Looks nice and clean.

The name makes me smile, too--that's worth something.

With the right hand in the camera "sling" and the left hand on the rover grip, both elbows will be even and upper arms tight against the sides of your chest. At this point the camera will move with yout torso and not by it's self.

A good axample was shooting footage from a rolling ship or from a jeep going over rough country. I rolled with the ship and the jeep and while the camera wasn't motionless, the motion was smooth and in sync with the vehicles movement.

Your hand may shake but not your whole upper body. Try it , you'll like it. I thought people were full of horse poop when they raved about it. i tried it and liked it.

if you think that works well then you need the marzpak. Now that's a gizmo worth owning.
