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.
