Product Highlights
  • Shoulder Support for Mini-DV Cameras
  • Highly Adjustable
  • Light Weight
  • Eliminates Fatigue While Shooting

The VZ-LSP is the ultimate camera support eliminating fatigue of your arm caused while holding the camera and support system. Separating this shoulder brace from others is the fully adjustable ab support, giving the shooter three points of contact with the brace (hand, shoulder and body) for maximum camera support and control.

Assembled with over 20 individually precision machined parts, the VZ-LSP is truly a work of art that is appreciated by professionals all over the world. Unlike many of the similar products on the market, your arm will not get fatigued! Shoot fatigue free all day with camcorders up to 8 pounds with cameras such as the Canon XL-1S on your shoulder!

The VZ-LSP provides for ten adjustable fittings for an endless variety of shooting configurations. The VZ-LSP is tough, lightweight and made to last a lifetime! Customize it with a VariZoom Lens Controller, the VZ-PG-L or the VZ-Pro-L, the digital videographer has the perfect combination for getting the best looking video with comfortable hand-held shooting.

Designed specifically for the popular "prosumer" camcorders, which are smaller than traditional shoulder-mount cameras, including the Sony DCR-VX2000, DCR-TRV950, DSR-PD150 and Canon's XL-1S & GL-2.
Insures a stable-shooting platform by providing three points of body contact: shoulder, hand and abdomen. The LSP may also be configured with or without the ab support depending on shooter preference.
Ten adjustments for best fit and control, including:
  • Shoulder Brace: up & down
  • Top Bar: swing left & right
  • Top Bar: slide up & down
  • Top Bar: tilt up & down
  • Cam Mount: up & down
  • Cam Mount: forward & backward
  • Ab Support: clutches at any angle
  • Ab Support: telescopes in & out
  • Ab Support: plate tilts up & down
The camera mounting platform can be positioned exactly as desired, raising the viewfinder right to the shooter's eye.
Precision crafted from machined aluminum, the VZ-LSP is tough, lightweight and built to last.

        Comments about VariZoom VZ-LSP Pro Shoulder Brace:

        This brace is in no way whatsoever built to last. They are super light weight, and they give you a great quick-fix for added stability. However, my office has bought close to fourteen over the years, (using Panasonic DVX's on them) and they've all snapped. Every single one has broken. It's hollow aluminum that breaks off like a paperclip after about 10 months of use. Buyer beware...

        Comments about VariZoom VZ-LSP Pro Shoulder Brace:

        I bought a new Sony NX5U and needed a shoulder support. I tried borrowing a friends VZ-LSP and I liked it. I was at NAB last month and tried a bunch of supports and most of them were too big and/or expensive for my little camera. This was not expensive and works good

          Comments about VariZoom VZ-LSP Pro Shoulder Brace:

          I use this mount for eng style shooting, really helps bring back the feeling of putting a larger 3/4" news camera on your shoulder - very portable, light weight, easily collapses to travel. It works equally well with heavier larger cameras such as the XD Cam as well as smaller HDV or DV cameras.

          Will not create a smooth look be warned this is not a steady cam and will not perform like one.

          But does the job for extended guerilla style or news style acquisitions.

          For the price it's great. There is no zoom or focus on the device itself however that was not my goal, it just balances the camera weight wize on your body so you can use both hands to do the rest and work and be the east/west stabilizers.

          The lower half (the T part) you can adjust it up and down for different camera positions or angles, but mostly it is for adapting to your comfort and body position to get the camera pointed forward as desired. There are other small adjustments you can do that help to angle the camera slightly to compensate for what is most comfortable for your body type.

          And like the earlier shoulder mounted cameras, not or course really technically for running or a lot of walking- just creates effect similar to having a camera on your shoulder.

          Saves a lot of shoulder, arm and wrist strain.

          Highly recommended.
