Revo's Video Shoulder Support allows you to keep your DSLR or camcorder fixed steady on your shoulder and will enable you to steadily maneuver the camera, while keeping it focused on a subject.

The rig is both affordable and highly effective, as it wraps tight around your shoulder and balances against your chest, thus providing fixed steadiness. The shoulder mount and chest brace components (the top and bottom parts) are connected by a strong spring-loaded mechanism that causes the two to firmly press against your body vertically. At the same time, a shoulder strap wraps tightly around you horizontally.

The spring-load tension is adjustable by a knob on the side, and the shoulder strap is length-adjustable, so that both can be loosened, to a point at which hand support will be required. Conversely, the tighter you set these, the more fixed the rig will be on your shoulder -- tight enough that you can operate the rig hands-free. This is ideal if you're shooting an event, because you can rest your hands when there's nothing to shoot. Both the shoulder and chest components are foam padded and are made of high-density plastic.

Integrated at shoulder level is a camera baseplate. Included complimentarily are a long plate that attaches to the baseplate and a riser that can attach to the long plate and bring the camera to eye level. Knobbed 1/4" screws are included for attaching these to one another and for mounting a camera. The long plate will extend your camera out about six inches, while also raising it about an inch. The riser will raise your camera approximately three more inches. The riser features a mini quick-release plate that is removable with the flip of a lever. All the plates have rubber pads on them to better support the camera. The rig folds in half and packs into a supplied soft carrying bag.

    I had previously purchased a much more elaborate rack system but found it to be far too heavy for practical use. A video professional friend told me about this unit and so I ordered it. Very comfortable, easy to use and compact. No need for anything more expensive and HEAVY! For the price you cannot go wrong and i don't see myself using anything else because it works well.

    The shoulder support is a great inexpensive option. I shoot a lot of video with my Canon Rebel T2i and this has made the whole process a lot simpler and even hands free. The brace fits tightly around your chest and the whole design is great. My only problem was with the riser. The screw that came with it was too small and wouldn't grab tightly enough so the camera would jiggle around on the mount. I bought a slightly larger screw but there must be something wrong with the threaded barrel inside the riser because you can't tighten the screw all the way and the camera continued to flop around. I finally got a washer and that fixed the problem. Other than that, the rig is a good investment.

      Comments about Revo Video Shoulder Support:

      Coming from shoulder mounted professional cameras, I needed stability for my new mini HD camera. The Revo shoulder support allows me that stability and the opportunity to use the eyepiece viewfinder at the back of the camera in bright light conditions.

      Very affordable, very stable and exactly what I needed.

        this is a great shoulder rig for less than $. Nothing better for the price. Makes the job half as hard by taking all the weight off the photographers arms.

          This is better than I expected for a rather low price...NIce! Holds the cam nice and tight to my body allowing both hands free to zoom/focus/adjust settings. Nice adjustable attachments allow positioning of the cam just where I want it. Good job Revo :)

                Works nicely, but a little herky-jerky. You have to practice technique for videos and move more slowly than you think. Also OK for supporting 70-200 lens if tripod not handy.

                        This thing is cheap but it does the job. I'd been warned about the extension plate breaking, so I bought a metal "cheese plate" to extend my Manfrotto quick release plate away from my body. So far it works well with no issues. I use this for DSLR shooting.

                                  The shoulder support comes with a bag of its own and a strap. The strap makes it hands free and easy to move around between shots. The lightweight construction makes is a breeze to carry around but it also makes it easier to break in the connections. My team has went through three of these in shoulder supports, 2 by Revo and 1 by another brand, in about 14 months. You need to be extra careful in tightening your camera on the mount. We are very careful but still, this is where the breaks occur. Still…it has value for the price and especially if you do not plan to use it consistently in weddings, etc., like we do.

                                      Seems comfortable, Camera's right there for when the action starts. I'm probably going to replace the camera mount thumb screw for one more beefy.

                                      If you're looking for a compact, portable, lightweight, and cheap shoulder mount, this is a good buy. It is not a full-fledged shoulder mount that you would want to build a huge expensive rig on, but hey, that wasn't what you were looking for, was it.

                                          This is a relatively simple and relatively effective means of shooting "hand held" video. It takes a couple of minutes to figure out how to set up and to get the rig adjusted to your body. Once that's done, it is a reasonably good camera support. One wekness in the design is that the thumb screw that attaches the camera plate needs to be very tight to prevent camera rotation. It's difficult to get it tight enough by hand. I used a small pair of pliers and the thumb screw handle broke off. However, I was able to use pliers to get it tight enough and it is also easy to remove with pliers - a minor annoyance.

                                            This thing is uncomfortable. Not good for short people. Not adjustable for height either. And you could only put one thing on it...the camera...you cant attach nothing to else to it. Unless, the camera has another place to put the mic and the light.

                                              This works great with my T4i and my new IndiPRO baseplate and follow focus. You can even take it off of your shoulder to get really low video shots as well.

                                              The shoulder support is a great inexpensive option. I shoot a lot of video with my Canon Rebel T2i and this has made the whole process a lot simpler and even hands free. The brace fits tightly around your chest and the whole design is great. My only problem was with the riser. The screw that came with it was too small and wouldn't grab tightly enough so the camera would jiggle around on the mount. I bought a slightly larger screw but there must be something wrong with the threaded barrel inside the riser because you can't tighten the screw all the way and the camera continued to flop around. I finally got a washer and that fixed the problem. Other than that, the rig is a good investment.
