        Comments about Revo SR-1500 Dual Grip Shoulder Support Rig:

        I needed a shoulder rig for an upcoming short film project that I could add other film gear to in the future. You really can't beat this setup for the cost. Quality material, adjustable and solidly built. I would recommend this to anyone who's been reading review after review on different DIY/budget shoulder rigs. Look no more and get this.

            We operated this unit with a Panasonic AF-100.
            Just the right size and weight for running 12 hours without fatigue.

              Comments about Revo SR-1500 Dual Grip Shoulder Support Rig:

              I did not need a rig for my dlsr. This is why I chose this straight setup which is perfect for my FX1000. Yes you've read it right, my FX1000 :)
              Almost updgraded this year but got the atomos ninja 2 with it and it gave a second life to my good old sony cam.
              With this shoulder support, i can now mount my atomos, mic, LED, tripod mount, and the camera feels really well balanced over my shoulder.

                There isn't much cheaper way to get started on a rail system for your video DSLR. This has all you need to get a simple shoulder rig but now you have what you need to start adding on a matte box audio handles or what every your heart desires.

                The ALMOST perfect budget shoulder rig

                Comments about Revo SR-1500 Dual Grip Shoulder Support Rig:

                If you have an external monitor, straight rigs, not the offset rigs, are the only way to go. For $[$], this shoulder rig provides the skeleton you need to start building your camera package on top of. This system is STRONG. We've attached a C100 with lots of gear (est. 16lbs) and the DP and I lifted this poor rig at times by the rails. A little flexing but never broke and the rods maintained their straight lengths. So I do believe the company's claim of 30lbs capacity. My unit was missing a little cap on the end of one of the handles. I sent an email to the company and a representative called me the next day. He had that missing piece shipped out the next business day! Great customer service. One thing that stopped me from giving it a full five stars and being the perfect budget shoulder rig is that the 90 degree handle bar rod connector in the front uses a difficult to reach allen screw to hold the two 15mm rods for the handles in place. Because of this, the screw on the long side became stripped from the weight of the rig and wiggled a tiny bit in place, which was no good because my monitor rested on that rod! Easy fix though, since I don't have to ever disassemble that rod from the connector, I just used JB Weld on it and now it will never come off.Overall, a mostly solid rig. Every piece is made quite well by a company with great customer service. If you don't mind fixing up a little bit of the rig on its weak spots, then the SR-1500 is the perfect budget shoulder rig for you!

                Solid Lightweight Shoulder Rig

                By Joe Ronca

                from Philadelphia, PA

                Comments about Revo SR-1500 Dual Grip Shoulder Support Rig:

                I contacted B&H to put together a 15mm rig to support a Lumix GX7 - with the goal of attaching a follow focus and matte box.

                They got back to me with an affordable list that included this shoulder rig.

                It's quite simple, fits together snug, easy setup and breakdown - and best of all, it's solid and lightweight.

                You can switch the long cross bar for right and left handed shooting (if you want to attach a monitor or other accessory) and they even include the tool to do so.

                For the money, this is a great product and a must for any DSLR or handheld video shooters. It's stable, lightweight and affordable.

                Thanks B&H!

                Comments about Revo SR-1500 Dual Grip Shoulder Support Rig:

                This is a wonderful product for the cost. The high-load capacity makes this an excellent option for someone needing an extra bit of stability for a serious project on something larger than a very basic camcorder or dSLR setup. The rods and components feel solid and professional, and are highly compatible with other 15mm rod system rigs and accessories. The grips are pretty comfortable and the whole rig takes almost no time at all to assemble.Keep in mind that a front-heavy rig will still require a lot of arm strength. There is no chest-support included in this model.
