    Comments about ikan Tilta DSLR Shoulder Rig, Baseplate w/Shoulder Pad, 4x4 Carbon Fiber Matte Box & FF Unit:

    Very sturdy and versatile camera rig. Follow focus w/ hard stops, a two-filter matte box, adjustable hand grips, and an adjustable shoulder pad make this a perfect all-in-one rig. My only complaint is the articulating arm screw is easy to break w/o applying too much pressure, as I did. The cage could use a few extra 1/4" holes for mounting accessories as well. But overall, I'm very happy with the purchase.

      Used in Prosumer capacity... Have used similar rigs from Shape - I feel this rig has everything Shape does but provides more bang for the buck.

      Comments about ikan Tilta DSLR Shoulder Rig, Baseplate w/Shoulder Pad, 4x4 Carbon Fiber Matte Box & FF Unit:

      I bought this as my first DSLR rig. It is absolutely perfect for a starter. Its made of metal, which makes it heavier than the Carbon Fiber models but it has everything you need without having to buy modular. If you'r shooting with DSLR/Small cameras, this is a great place to start for a rig as it has everything you need to get going (minus a monitor). It even comes wit ha pretty heavy duty hard case, which i would think is AT LEAST $150 in value. Nothing compares to the bang for this buck!

      If purchasing, I would recommend a counterweight for stability, as it does become a bit front heavy once everything is set up, and a monitor, as it is difficult to see the little dslr screen at the angle it provides.

      The follow focus is pretty top notch, btw. No need to replace it. If using a Zoom Lens, I would probably go for an additional zoom wheel.

      Downside: There are no assembly instructions so you are kind of on your own as far as the set up is concerned. Not really difficult to figure out though. The package is kind of self explanatory.

          This is simply the best product I have ever bought from B&H without seeing it in person first. It is very good quality and really unbelievable for the price! If you need this kind of rig, look no further, this has everything you could want and the build quality is fantastic! I LOVE THIS RIG, you will too.

            This is a great kit. Has everything you would need. It's very solid and flexible. Follow focus is smooth. Shoulder pad with handles feels great. Matte box is solid. Also, the case it comes in is very durable, has a handle and wheels for easy portability and everything is very secure inside.
