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.
