The Dougmon Special Camera Support Rig with Manfrotto-Style Head & Plate enables you to get multi-directional shots, one-handed, steadily. The rig straps up to your arm, wherever on your arm you feel it comfortable, and it adjusts in length. And the main handle, which is connected by a ball head system, adjusts in friction from loose through lock-tight. All adjustments are made by knobs. The handle has a Manfrotto-style 577 camera plate head and a 501 camera plate, compatible with any camera. The rig weighs a lightweight 2 lbs and supports cameras up to 5.5 lbs.

Without a rig, even minor hand movements can result in much bigger movements on screen. With the Dougmon, especially after some practice with it, you can have significantly steadier shots, and you get the great benefit of being able to point the camera in any direction you can point your hand.

With the addition of a Dougmon Slingmon, sold separately, you can use the rig with cameras as heavy as 7 lbs and you can keep two hands on the camera. The Slingmon is an over-the-shoulder pocket brace that lets you use the rig in a way similar to how a stabilizer is used when clipped to a waist belt.

      Comments about Dougmon Special Camera Support Rig with Manfrotto-Style Head & Plate:

      Sometime the best design is rooted in its simplicity. The Dougmon in combination with the slingmon has replaced my tri-pod for run and gun shooting, while still allowing me smooth moves and steady shots.

      Interviews are a cinch and there's full range of control without being stuck to my shoulder. It really just feels like an extension of your arm and body and allows you to shoot stuff organically.

      It's also been a back and arm saver - I shoot all day and do not feel any fatigue or soreness the next day.

      I use it with my GH3 and AF100 kit with a larger lens in conjunction with the slingmon and absolutely love it!
