      Comments about Genustech GCSMK Shoulder Mount:

      I shoot short documentaries about a hobby/sport. I needed something that would help me: stabilize my 5dmii video shots; stay quick on my feet; and stay comfortable during long shoot days.

      After a long research process for rigs I decided on this device. One of the main factors that sold me was the counter balance. It's important to me to have a steady shot, but not at the risk of a damaged shoulder. I also appreciate the adjustability of camera mount level, shoulder pad angle, and distance between handle bars. The standard bars are great I can add accessories from other companies, but I also chose this rig because it has almost everything I need for the type of shooting I do. I purchased an additional Genus Follow Focus and a Redrock microspud mount.

      So far my only complaints are that the handle bars need to tightened very tight to not budge and the lock down knobs in general cannot be adjusted to your desired pointing direction as the redrock micro ones do - this means you may have a knob protruding somewhere you don't want it, but to keep things tight you wont be able to move it.

      Nice, but can quite a bit of heft.

      Comments about Genustech GCSMK Shoulder Mount:

      Purchased this for use with my Sony XDCam, only to realize that it was made for SLR camera rigs. I have made it work with my camera, however, it cannot fully counterbalance the weight of the camera, battery, and any other accessories I might need to fulfill my role with the client.

        Solid build.
        Outer coating makes for smooth adjustments without it being rickety.
        Modular.
        Light weight.
        Honestly, when it comes to rigs and other similar contraptions they all share similar qualities but one thing I can attest to is the effectiveness of the adjustment knobs (won't move, slide, creep or loosen).
        Compared to the ALL the rest, it stands out aesthetically.
