"My biggest concern was having a steady shot during those portions of the evening that require prolong shooting periods like the toasts, which can go on for 2-10 minutes as well as those times when they do the First Dance, Father-Daughter and Mother-Son Dances, all back to back, which can last as long as 12 mintes."

wow... our speeches usually last no less than half an hour

Another happy DVRigPro customer here.

In fac mine has already paid for itself from getting hired out to an indy producing for the BBC for months and months on end.

I use it for all my live work with my fully loaded Z1, where I need controlled yet dynamic footage. Think of it as a shoulder mount without the backache.

A steadicam would be better for complicated moving/walking shots, but it's not bad at those either. I can film with it all day too!

Thanks Danny!
