One particular of the most important factors when shooting should be to retain the camera steady. This is a professional DSLR rig for shooting, light and comprehensively. Double-handle permits shooting additional stabilization, the photographer far more comfy and hassle-free. Strong and amazing appearance permits your shooting far more specialist
This can be a well-built product but demands somewhat of "love" to produce it really practical. Very first you should shore up the manage locking devices and after that you have to add weights towards the picture. Aside from the weights, 1 trip to Lowes is all you require for all of the new components.
Locking devices. Apart from the pivot point on the 2-part handle program at the back of this rig, remove each the plastic knobs and also the carriage bolts that hold all 3 manage assemblies. Replace them with all the following: (assure you retain the clear rubber washers!)
1/4-20 2 Inch hex bolts. Can be complete thread or partial. Both will match. 1/4-20 Wing nuts.
I bought 5 bolts and six wing nuts.
Be certain that after you are placing almost everything back collectively you put the rubber washers back where they were!! The first time you tighten this new locking technique down you'll discover the distinction. The prior system is just plain shoddy.
To safe weights for the rig (fantastic for balance and comfort when utilizing it inside the shoulder rig configuration and maybe for other utilizes but I have not found any yet):
On the identical trip to Lowes:
1/4-20 four inch or longer hex bolt. This may screw into the bottom on the 2-part manage bit at the back. Washers substantial adequate to hold your weights on to each the rig and also the wing nut (explained later)
Visit Walmart and get yourself at the least 1 x two.5lb kettle weight and 1 x 5lb kettle weight. Make sure they are disc-type.
The order of assembly for the weights.
Take the bolt and screw on a wing-nut (wings should really be toward the open finish on the bolt not the hex finish) Place 2 x washers on the bolt and slide down to the wing nut Put weights on the bolt to suit your needs two much more washers on the bolt Hold almost everything with each other and screw the bolt into the rear from the rig. The inside is hollow so you can not hit a "stop". Rather I suggest screwing down about 1.5 inches or so to make sure that you are making use of all the accessible threads. Tighten the wing nut down to the washers and lock almost everything in place.
Tada! Immediately stable shoulder rig and whever else you could consider.
