The Cavision Standard Shoulder Pad Package w/ Viewfinder allows you to use your Canon 5D Mk II or other video-enabled DSLR in a manner that approximates the shoulder-mounted style of traditional videography. Shoulder-mounted operation will increase your endurance and reduces the jitter of your shooting, for smooth operation over long days on set or on location. The addition of the viewfinder allows finer control over critical focus and scene framing.

The included Cavision MHE52 Viewfinder magnifies the LCD image by 6x, employing a single glass element and a comfortable rubber eyecup. The eyepiece is a similar size to those found on high-end digital-cinema cameras such as the Sony F900. The combination of the quick-release plate and the swing-away viewfinder connector piece allows you to remove the camera from the rig easily, enabling a quick switch from shoulder-mounted to handheld shooting.

Two pistol-style handgrips attach to the front of the 12 in (30 cm) standard 15mm rods. Because the Standard Shoulder Pad Package puts your camera on rods, it's easy to expand the system if you want to add, for instance, a follow-focus device or a matte box.

Note: Height alignment of LCD Viewfinder is intended for Canon 5D MII. May not align properly with other cameras. (Can also be used on Canon 7D or Canon T2i / 550D with swing away piece flipped upside down).

Shoulder pad is adjustable to fit different shoulder sizes, and features two tilt adjustments
Both handgrips offer swivel adjustment
Swing-away piece features horizontal and forwards/backwards adjustment, as well as swing-away function for easy access to buttons and camera viewfinder

    Comments about Cavision Standard Shoulder Pad Package w/ Viewfinder for DSLR Cameras:

    The Cavision package is now in heavy use by my introductory video class. While lacking the fine machining of the far more expensive alternatives, this unit possesses the functionality and easy of use that signal customer satisfaction. I hope it can stand the abuse my students can dish out.

          Comments about Cavision Standard Shoulder Pad Package w/ Viewfinder for DSLR Cameras:

          Definitely decent a rig if you know what you're looking' for. I heard complaints about viewfinder and find them to some degree true. 6 times magnification is a little bit too much for me otherwise everything is what I need. I use it w/ Canon 5d Mark II.
