Excellent accessory

I use it with a Sony PMW-200. Allows shooting in all situations with great stability: shoulder chest, close to the ground.

Great idea, bad execution!

My use: Panasonic dvx100be. After about 10 weddings I've taken with this product is broken, cracks appeared in a product, and I use it now with reinforcement and glue around. My use of ordinary and not aggressive. Excellent idea but very bad stuff and not suitable for professional work! Cheap plastics and bad. sony did not take responsibility for the product

I bought a support for my Sony Pmwex1r from another company and paid much less money and it is uncomfortable, clunky, and junk. I guess it is true you get what you pay for. I since bought the sony VCT - SP2BP brace and it fits like a glove. very easy to use and most comfortable.

Good and Bad

Used in Pro Video Weddings and TV Production. Great because it can be placed into the quick release on a tripod. Bad, because it is a terrible design, there is no comfort pad for your shoulder, all the weight of the camera is in the front and no support other than your hand. When placed on your shoulder the camera is facing down. You have to lift it into an uncomfortable position to have it facing in a level position. The Chest rest, is uncomfortable and does nothing. The adjustment knob is also sub standard. The only way I could use this comfortably was to carry it chest high.

I would by this product again

VCT-SP2BP Camcorder shoulder support just does what it is built for. I am using it with my Sony PMW EX1R. Without it it is impossible to hand shoot with that heavy camera for a longer period of time. It takes all the stress from your wrist. I tried it ones and it seems to be comfortable. I had used one of the accessories to mount my battery for Sony light, which makes the front of a camera a little bit lighter. Also I mounted a tripod quick release plate, so am able to go quickly to a tripod if needed. It would be much better if the front support arm could be steady fixed so you don't need to adjust it so often. I little bit overpriced. Otherwise, it is a good product. I would recommend purchasing it.

Very useful

I got this to help steady my NX5U. It adds weight to the camera and takes some time to adjust to your body. But, works great. Its the next best stabilizer to my Merlin Steadycam. And better in fast moving and windy conditions. Because of its design I think it is the best of the shoulder mounts I've tried. I use it with my lighter Panny HMC40 also. Expensive but works.

Shoulder Support

I use the shoulder support when I have no time to grab the tripod, this isn't enough room for the tripod, or I have to be able to move quickly from spot to spot. While on the tripod I use the support as a handle to adjust the camera position. I can mount the camera on the shoulder support then mount the camera and shoulder support on the tripod for those shot where a tripod can be used. Then I can pull the camera and shoulder support off the tripod and be on the move in a few seconds. I wish the front leg would extend about 15 to 20 cm more, and there was a strap to go over the shoulder and connect to the shoulder support to create a nearly hands free contraption.

Good idea, but ...cracking at critical s

Good idea, but...cracking at critical spot. Over all design is great, however adopting yourself to useful functions will take several approaches.

Does this shoulder support work with a Sachtler Ace M or is it mandatory to buy the Sony Sony VCT-14 adaptor? Thank you.

question

Does this shoulder support work for the PXW-Z150 camcorder? IS there a different one that you would recommend for that camcorder?
Asked by: Linda L.
The Sony VCT-SP2BP Camcorder Shoulder Support would work well with the PXW-Z150. You might also consider these two other supports. ikan Hoverfly Lightweight Shoulder Rig B&H # IKELEHVRFLY and the CameraRibbon QR Shoulder Rig Camera Support for Panasonic, Sony, Canon B&H # CASRPAGAF1QR. I like these in that they are very simple, and your left hand is free for lens adjustments.

question

Does this (VCT-SP2BP) product come with the tripod mate device? A matching plate on the tripod enables quick-release attachment of this shoulder support onto the tripod. Is such tripod plate included, or must it be purchased separately?
Asked by: Anonymous
No plate. You have to buy it separately. But this shoulder support is very useful. I use it very often.I bought a tripod plate with a V-mount too.
