Zacuto's C300 Stinger In-Line Shoulder Mounted Rig can make your long shooting days with a Canon C300 seem a lot shorter. The Stinger features the exceptionally flat C300 Studio Baseplate, which has two 12" 15mm rods running through the length of the baseplate and a series of 15mm screw holes along each side of the baseplate for extensive accessory mounting options. It also has standard 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 holes on the bottom for mounting on a tripod. The baseplate can also be turned into a cage configuration.

This shoulder-mounted in-line system can be used on either the left or the right shoulder with equal comfort--perfect for ENG-style shooting. The included shoulder pad and 7-lb counterbalance weight make a fully balanced in-line rig--the weight can be moved forward and back on the rods for comfort. This rig is compatible with any 15mm accessories, such as a follow focus, monitor, etc.

NOTE: The screw hole pattern on the C300 Studio Baseplate is 1/4"-20, 3/8"-16, 3/8"-16, 3/8"-16. To mount the C300 camera, you will use the 1/4"-20 and the first 3/8"-16 screw hole. The C300 Studio Baseplate will ship with one 1/4"-20 screw and one 3/8"-16 screw.

    Comments about Zacuto C300 Stinger In-Line Shoulder Mounted Rig:

    I shoot a lot of web videos / documentaries. I often have to shoot very long takes handheld so I've been trying to find a shoulder rig that is comfortable and balanced. I recently got the c300 stinger and there's a lot I like about it but the one thing that needs improvement is the pad that sits on your shoulder. It's very small and flat - I find it always wants to slide off my shoulder. I've used other shoulder rigs that have a rounded pad that curves over your shoulder and provides more support. If Zacuto could create a curved shoulder pad it would greatly improve this rig. I noticed in a video shot at NAB they showed a recoil rig with a curved shoulder pad. It would be great if they offered that curved shoulder pad for all their rigs. I wouldn't want to shoot long takes with this rig all day handheld the way it's currently set up. I would recommend this being used for short bursts as it's heavy and a little awkward the way the pad sits on your shoulder after a while.

    On the positive side. It breaks down into small components. You can attach a tripod plate underneath to easily go from tripod to handheld. Lot's of room for follow focus, matte box and EVF plus room for mounting wireless receivers on the back .

    Also with a few extra components you can easily turn this rig into a recoil rig so you have options for another type of shoulder mount.

    If they offered a different should pad I would recommended it to a friend but would hesitate the way it is now.

    Comments about Zacuto C300 Stinger In-Line Shoulder Mounted Rig:

    This rig is VERY well made. For the past few years I've been using a rig that I made. It worked well but didn't look professional at all. You won't have that problem with this rig.

    It stabilizes the camera and eliminates a good amount of shake and wobble. I can literally assemble and take the rig apart in under 2 minutes. It can fit into a bag or case very easy.
