Sounds interesting. Fortunately I have my cam loaded with audio recording, a mic or two, a small monitor to check focus and occasionally a light, mattebox or follow focus unit plus a baseplate and a couple rods to attach everything. So my tripod setup usually weighs at least 5 or 6 pounds.

But still, getting everything to balance always takes a little time to monkey around with positioning, anything that may make that easier is definitely worth a look.

This caught my eye...

OK, folks.....................

Here's what you've been waiting for, and, as I have said before, this thing rocks.

Review: Vinten Vision Blue at

I could give you the usual "leaps tall buildings in a single bound" BS, just read the review and start counting pennies till you can afford one.

If you're shooting in this camera category, don't even think of buying anything else for a support system, there is nothing to touch it for operation, price or usability.

This is truly an amateur film makers dream come true, and even a Pro shooting with the new ultra low weight/ COG DSLR's.

Read it and buy guys (and no, I don't get commission, I just won't have to field so many posts about crap camera supports in the future, Lordy Halleluah!).
