Product Highlights
  • Enables Steady Camera Operation
  • Length-Adjustable Metal Bar
  • Friction-Adjustable Handle
  • Padded Loop with Tightening Strap
  • Manfrotto-Style 577 Head and 501 Plate
  • Slingmon Supports Rig Vertically
  • Over-the-Shoulder Pocket Brace
  • Soft Carry Bag for Rig Included
  • Supports Cameras up to 7 lb

The Dougmon Special/Slingmon/Logo Bag Package Kit includes everything you need to get multi-directional shots one-handed and steadily, with vertical support, plus a soft carry bag for the entire kit.

The Dougmon Special 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 included Dougmon Slingmon Camera Sling is an over-the-shoulder pocket brace that lets you use the Dougmon Special camera rig similar to how a stabilizer is used when clipped to a waist belt. The Slingmon serves as the waist-belt, hanging over your shoulder and resting around your hip or stomach area. The Dougmon rig extends to full length, gets stood vertically, and by way of its padded loop rests in the pocket of the Slingmon. You'll be able to keep two hands on the camera if you want.

The Slingmon is best for right-handed shooters, as the controls of most cameras are on the left side. The rig weighs a lightweight 2 lbs and supports cameras up to 7 lb.

Without a rig, even minor hand movements can result in much bigger movements on screen. With this kit, 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.

The included Dougmon Logo Carry Bag is a soft carrying bag for the rig. Measuring 18 x 14.5" and made of sandwich mesh and microfiber, the bag features an inside pocket that closes by touch fasteners, a rubber ear bud opening at the upper right, and sturdy bottom corners reinforced with strong grommet. Cord drawstrings run through the reinforcements. The colors are red, black, and silver.

  • Enables multi-directional, one-handed, steady shooting
  • Straps up to your arm and adjusts in length and ball friction
  • Includes a Manfrotto-style 577 quick-release head and 501 plate
  • Supports cameras up to 7 lb
Camera Support Supports cameras up to 7 lb (3.17 kg)

      Build quality is superb, add that to the ease of shooting many angles, you have a very simple tool for higher production value. It also saved the shooter's wrist, arms and back!!!!!

      Comments about Dougmon Special/Slingmon/Logo Bag Package Kit:

      I think the Dougmon is great. I can do every shot I can think of easily and efficiently. I'm using it a lot. Is very small and so far I love it. It works great with my 5D Mark 3, Blackmagic and GH3. I have no problems, the only one is that it may be a little too price but if you have the money you should get it.

        Comments about Dougmon Special/Slingmon/Logo Bag Package Kit:

        Sometimes the beauty in a good design is its simplicity and the Dougmon and Slingmon fit this description perfectly.

        I've used them a few times now for run and gun on the street shooting and have been very pleased with the results. Smooth steady shots, tri-pod like pans and tilts and the best part - walking and talking shots while I'm walking forward! I can honestly say that I would be able to use this system easily as a replacement for a tripod. It would work for my specific needs 99% of the time.

        It's been equally great for my DSLR (GH3) and heavier AF100 with larger lenses. And there really is not much of a learning curve at all.

        And I'm happy to report that my back and arms feel fine after a long day's shoot!

        It's not a stedicam, so I wouldn't compare it to those kind of systems, but you can literally be good to go within five minutes and have some great steady shots without the limitations of a shoulder type of support and the balancing of stedi-system.

        And I had a few questions for customer service and they really went above and beyond my expectations with their replies and service. Couldn't be more happier with this choice!!!!

          Comments about Dougmon Special/Slingmon/Logo Bag Package Kit:

          I received my Dougmon system a few days ago and have had a chance to spend a couple days putting it through its paces. I generally shoot with a Nikon D800 w/ a 24-70 2.8 and it is heavy and very awkwardly balanced. The 24- 70 lens is brick that makes the camera very front heavy, so up to now I had been exclusively shooting with a tripod. The Dougmon has totally revamped the way I shoot with my dslr. I can now shoot on the go without the hassle of carrying a heavy tripod around . The Dougmon not only lets me shoot much more steadily, it lets me use one hand to focus and manipulate my camera in any way I need. With a little practice you can get smooth pans and tracking shots. With the addition of the Slingmon things only get more smooth. The Slingmon also allows me to shoot very steady photos, so in low light i can slow the shutter speed on my camera without blurring and it is a must for extended shoots as it takes all the weight off your hands and distributes it to your shoulders. I would have to right a much longer and more boring review to list everything this tool helps me with , but in an effort to keep this short and concise let me just say I love the product and If you are shooting a heavy dslr like mine this will expand your shooting options in a way no other product can.

            Comments about Dougmon Special/Slingmon/Logo Bag Package Kit:

            As a producer I love the Dougmon because I can put my small Sony NX camera on the quick release plate, slide it on the Dougmon - onto my arm, flip out the viewfinder and then I'm ready to go. No camera shake - I can do nice smooth moves with my subject, or do interviews on the fly or sitting down using the Dougmon in monopod mode. With the sling I can put the Dougmon on my 5D and have both hands on the camera. Shots are steady and I can hold the camera much longer than with out the Dougmon.
