The Manfrotto Heavy Telephoto Lens Support is designed to allow a telephoto lens and camera combination weighing up to 44.1 lb to be easily tilted and locked into place. It features a swing positioned inside a frame that can be attached to tripods or other support systems with a 3/8"-16 mount. Pushing a lens and camera placed on the swing raises the front of the lens upward, while pulling the lens and camera points the front of the lens towards low-angle subjects.

A telephoto lens with an integrated foot or lens collar that is compatible with a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 mount can be connected to the included 357PLV Quick Release Plate, which measures 2.2 x 5.5 x 0.5" and has a rubberized, non-slip surface. The quick release plate and the attached lens can then be set and locked within the 357PL Quick Release Adapter at the center of the Manfrotto Heavy Telephoto Lens Support's swing, which is attached to both sides of the frame using two screw-in locking knobs. While loosened, both locking knobs allow a lens and camera placed on the swing to be pushed and pulled until the desired angle is obtained. The locking knobs can then be tightened, preventing further movement of the swing.

Before a telephoto lens is secured to the Manfrotto Heavy Telephoto Lens Support, the locking knobs can be fully unscrewed and removed from the frame, which also detaches the swing. Three pairs of threaded screw holes each along both sides of the swing allow it to be elevated or lowered relative to the frame. Higher swing positions can provide a lens and camera with additional height when needed, while the lowest position can be maintained to help maximize stability.

"Wow !...Good deal...This setup is easy to use....That said, I can't see why I'd pay 2-3 times the price for another Gimbal head, as this is easy to install, easy to use, easy to get the right balance and provides a great experience with my Canon 1Dx, Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 lens and Canon 2x converter."

"Love it...I love it....Easy to use, flexible and practical....Ultimately, I felt that if I'd purchased this item with a smaller handyCam or a lighter DSLR in mind, my experience would be different - but for any mid to large DSLR with a decent lens, the camera rests unsteadily and doesn't gain steadiness without a lot of fuss, all of which is undone when another mode is employed."

Revo's Video Shoulder Support allows you to keep your DSLR or camcorder fixed steady on your shoulder and will enable you to steadily maneuver the camera, while keeping it focused on a subject.

The rig is both affordable and highly effective, as it wraps tight around your shoulder and balances against your chest, thus providing fixed steadiness. The shoulder mount and chest brace components (the top and bottom parts) are connected by a strong spring-loaded mechanism that causes the two to firmly press against your body vertically. At the same time, a shoulder strap wraps tightly around you horizontally.

The spring-load tension is adjustable by a knob on the side, and the shoulder strap is length-adjustable, so that both can be loosened, to a point at which hand support will be required. Conversely, the tighter you set these, the more fixed the rig will be on your shoulder -- tight enough that you can operate the rig hands-free. This is ideal if you're shooting an event, because you can rest your hands when there's nothing to shoot. Both the shoulder and chest components are foam padded and are made of high-density plastic.

Integrated at shoulder level is a camera baseplate. Included complimentarily are a long plate that attaches to the baseplate and a riser that can attach to the long plate and bring the camera to eye level. Knobbed 1/4" screws are included for attaching these to one another and for mounting a camera. The long plate will extend your camera out about six inches, while also raising it about an inch. The riser will raise your camera approximately three more inches. The riser features a mini quick-release plate that is removable with the flip of a lever. All the plates have rubber pads on them to better support the camera. The rig folds in half and packs into a supplied soft carrying bag.

B&H # PLPMPMT1009 MFR # 1009

The Platypod Pro Max Camera Support is a wide, stable, and ultra low-profile platform that allows you to set up a large tripod head, camera, and lens on both horizontal and vertical surfaces.

Measuring 5.3 x 7.8" and only 0.2" thick, the Pro Max Camera Support allows you to photograph or record with a camera that is elevated only slightly higher than the tripod head it is used with. Four reversible, spiked feet that each feature rubber tips on one end can be distributed among five strategically placed, 1/4"-20 threaded holes. Once installed, they can be adjusted to level the platform on uneven surfaces, both indoors and out. For placement on unconventional surfaces and angles, two 2-inch belt shots allow the Pro Max Camera Support to be secured to a cylindrical object or to be taped onto angled floors. Two nail holes are included for permanent or semi-permanent mounting to walls, boards or ceilings; and for quick placement and removal from conventional tripods or quick release devices, 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 threaded holes are on the underside of the platform.

When the spike feet and their locking nuts are not in use, a magnetized storage box holds them against the top of the Platypod Pro Max Camera Support. Able to hold up to 300 lb, the Platypod Pro Max Camera Support accepts tripod heads with 3/8"-16 mounts, and is constructed from anodized, aluminum-alloy for durability and corrosion resistance.

B&H # IMDVPSSPSK MFR # BGSS-VK3S

The silver Deluxe Varipole Support System from Impact is a kit that provides you with a complete studio system for shooting everything from portraits to product shots. The kit includes two silver Varipoles as well as two Triple Background Hooks with Superclamps and one each of gray, black and red Chain Sets and Weights. The multi-colored chain sets will help you distinguish each of your backdrops and eliminate any mistakes when you want to change the color of the background.

The system will accommodate three user-supplied backdrops. The beauty of this system is that you'll be able to exchange the backdrops without having to dismantle the entire system to re-hang a backdrop. This saves time and makes your shooting session more cost-effective and time-efficient. It also allows you to give your client three different "looks" to the shot.

Set up is easy since the Chain Drives provide a quick way to raise and lower your backgrounds. The Varipoles grip the floor and ceiling securely. The Varidrives are placed within both ends of your background and expand to fit tightly. This entire system gives you an entire studio set up in one complete package. All the components for a home or studio background system are included. All you need supply are the backgrounds.
