The Cam Caddie Scorpion EX is a versatile camera handle and stabilizer designed to give modern DSLRs point & shoot cameras the same feel as a traditional video camcorder. The new breed of DSLRs & HD video cameras have become so small they are now difficult to hold & maneuver. The Scorpion EX solves this problem with its ergonomically designed handle, creating a comfortable grip for smooth and steady shots. The Scorpion EX can also help facilitate moves that look like a professional jib arm or camera stabilizer. The Cam Caddie Scorpion EX is Ideal for capturing action shots, and low angles, Specifically designed for the run and gun videographer, the Scorpion is a great DSLR Rig for quickly attaching an endless variety of accessories.The Cam Caddie Scorpion is compatible with nearly all consumer level video recording devices and DSLRs.

The universal  tripod mount screw hole is found on nearly all camera models, and is the mechanism which is required to attach your camera to the Scorpion mount. The Cheese Plate mounts the Scorpion EX directly onto a tripod, slider or shoulder support. Instantly go from tripod to handheld shooting without making any adjustments to your setup. The versatile design enables the Scorpion platform to double as a DSLR cage allowing the operator to attach an endless variety of accessories.

The Accessory shoe is used to mount microphones, LED lights or any other device that is normally attached with the flash shoe platform. It can be used to mount a single microphone or LED light, or it can be combined with the Accessory Wing to create a 10-inch track for mounting multiple items.

The Cam Caddie Accessory Wing is a 10" (25.4cm) flat bar that is used with the Accessory Shoe to offer extra spacing on the camera support for mounting camera accessories or used with the Mounting Screw to connect to the base of the Scorpion. It can be mounted onto any 1/4-20 thread or a tripod top plate to attach multiple accessories. The bar is compatible with accessories such as: light panels, mics, monitors, lavaliere transponders, etc. You can attach the wing directly to the camera via the Cam Caddie 1/4-20 Flashner/Converter.

The 1/4-20 Flashner converts a standard 1/4-20 tripod mount to a Flash Shoe. Attach any accessory that has a tripod mount directly to the Scorpion Accessory Shoe, Accessory Wing, or camera Flash Shoe. The 1/4-20 Flashner/converter also works with Cam Caddie Flashner kits.

        Comments about Cam Caddie Scorpion EX Pro Kit:

        I bought the scorpion pro kit for my canon t3i with extended battery pack on base. The camera fit between the "head and tail" of the scorpion snuggly but the camera had to mounted at the very front with the lens hanging way out in front in order to comfortably adjust the focus barrel. Because i had my h4n and shotgun mic mounted on top, this left a large open space behind the camera being unused. Instead of making my rig more compact, it ended up spreading everything out. *Also, there were issues with the cheese plate. The holes for the feet were not properly machined and therefore did not screw in completely flush. I'm pretty sure this would not have affected performance, except with the feet mounted on the four corners as well as a tripod plate in the center i was not able to slide the cheese onto my manfrotto 501hdv tripod head because the feet are not set wide enough apart.*All in all, the issues are not major but for$[$], I dont feel it is a good choice for my setup. I am returning it.
