The HDV-PRO/V HDV/DV Camera Shoulder Support with V Plate from Switronix is a shoulder support system designed for use with HDV and DV cameras. This model includes the HDV-PRO with an integrated V-Mount Plate to attach a lithium ion battery pack to power a 12V light and camera (requires an SC cable for camera power).

The unit is made from machined, aircraft aluminum and is fully adjustable. When not in use, it folds down to fit in most DV camera bags. A unique swing arm and flexible shoulder brace are designed to provide more versatility when shooting. Other new features include three-axis movement, a longer slide for adjustment of the quick-release plate, and a widened and more flexible chest plate to distribute pressure more evenly.

      Comments about Switronix HDV-PRO/V HDV/DV Camera Shoulder Support with V Plate:

      This was part a package purchase including a few other accessories , so I didn't really do much research before buying, as I was after the camera. Nikon D600/Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm Zoom Lens.

      All the weight in that set up thus far is in the glass, and while the included battery with clip attachment should balance...it simply does not. The bit that sits atop the shoulder is flimsy and not well designed. The entire thing just doesn't give me confidence that any gear of value is particularly safe mounted to it. I would continue to look for alternatives.

            Comments about Switronix HDV-PRO/V HDV/DV Camera Shoulder Support with V Plate:

            Any of the midsized cameras needs some form of shoulder support when used off the tripod for extended production - we use this for our Z7.
            The range of products for the job is vast - and in many cases, ridiculous. But there are a few good, usable, shoulder mounts and this is one of them. Better still, this is about the most reasonably priced one (though that's a relative term as with any camera related accessory).

            This version - with the V mount - allows us to hang an old PAG battery off the back as a counterweight - and that makes a considerable difference in comfort.

            Build quality is average - handle bracket does not lock down tight, giving some movement that is annoying but not a deal-breaker.
            The shoulder curve bends too easily but again it's not the end of the world.
            The quick release bracket doesn't match any of our mid sized tripods - making it a pain to change. But that's as much the fault of the tripod makers as Switronix.

            I'd recommend this simply because it's half the price of the next best one and far less than some of the models I've seen.
            It does the job.
