        Comments about Video Innovators S-100 Standard Shoulder Rest:

        I'll admit that I'm miss-using this item, but the price was right, and it HAS held up to the abuse.

        I needed to fabricate a mounting system for a Sony EX-1R pro camcorder. The shoulder rest needed to mount not just the camera, but also an Anton Bauer battery, a Lectro-sonic wireless reciever and mic, and have an extruded aluminum tripod interface bolted to the bottom of it. Basically, 10 lbs of stuff in a 5 lb bag.

        I reinforced the shoulder rest in several areas, drilled numerous holes in it, overloaded it with a camera and other equipment to the final weight of 16 lbs, and it still works like it was supposed to.

        If it can withstand the amount of abuse I'm heaping on it, you won't have any problems mouting a small camcordr to it.

        Great product for the price.

          Comments about Video Innovators S-100 Standard Shoulder Rest:

          We bought two of these to use with our Panasonic AG AC160's. With all of the extras added to the cameras they were getting a little bit too heavy. Unfortunately we forgot to take into consideration that this shoulder rest doesn't work with a fixed eye piece. If using the lcd then it's not a problem.

          The quality is fine. The handle is a great idea but not ideal for cameras that are top heavy. You spend more time trying to balance the camera so it doesn't tilt.

          Not the best option for us.

                It is well made and very reasonably priced for use with small camcorders. Really no complaints, it works, is inexpensive and well made. What more can we ask for>
