The Cotton Carrier Steady Shot is an adjustable aluminum bracket that allows you to support the weight of your camera steadily against your chest by inserting the bottom end of the Steady Shot into the Lexan receptacle of your existing Cotton Carrier Camera Vest.

With several mounting points on its top plate, the Steady Shot is compatible with any quick-release clamp or photo/video head. Two adjustment points allow you to set the tilt and height of the camera easily. With the weight of the camera supported against your chest, you're free to operate comfortably – with fluid movements and the freedom to adjust settings on your camera – for long periods of time.

The rock-solid Steady Shot can support the weight of any DSLR camera, even with a long lens attached. It's perfect for shooting nature, sports, documentaries, or any other project that has you on your feet and moving about for hours at a stretch. The stable platform will enable you to capture crisper shots than traditional handheld operation allows. For certain projects you'll be able to leave the tripod or monopod at home, thereby increasing your mobility.

Note! Requires the Cotton Carrier Camera Vest and a camera mount of some sort.

Accepts any 1/4" threaded quick-release clamp or video/photo head
No other plates, clamps, or adapters necessary
Machined from aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum – with all stainless steel fittings – for rugged dependability
Makes use of the Cotton Carrier Camera Hub that you own already

          Comments about Cotton Carrier Steady Shot:

          This does make your camera steadier, and it is comfortable for that, so I give it 3 stars. If it folded up flat, I would give it 5 stars. As it is, it's rather bulky to deal with when it's not in the Cotton Carrier.

            Comments about Cotton Carrier Steady Shot:

            Do you have a heavy lens?? This is great for hiking even if you have a tripod and backpack. If you wear your cotton carrier and keep your camera out, you can quickly attach this to the cotton carrier and with a tripod mount you can quickly mount your long lens ring, take a deep breath, and shoot hand held with great results. You can then remove it, reattach your camera and continue to hike with the camera secure and not flopping around. The steady shot straps easily to a carribeaner or your back pack when not in use. Just find a tree or something to lean on and steady yourself and your good. It works! It completely articulates in several places so you can keep your camera viewfinder where you need it with your hands mostly free and not supporting any weight.

            Comments about Cotton Carrier Steady Shot:

            Easy to use. Once you have set your personalized setting on the arm this is a very basic click on and click off rest. It reduces camera shake with heavier lenses. I love the way the weight of the canera is distributed to your body without feeling the stress, leaving your hands to do the job of taking the picture. The only thing I have against it is carrying it around. it needs some sort of a clip to hang on to the cotton carrier vest.

                This is a nicely constructed accessory. I am using it as a steady video/cam support. Much less expensive and very small footprint compared to shoulder rigs. I gave it 4 stars because it's a bit expensive for what it is, and there's no 3/8in bolt hole (they do send a 1/4 to 3/8 adapter), threaded or otherwise.
