Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money! All of the other rigs like this are plastic. This being full metal is fantastic! I am more than confident with this rig and I trust my 60D on here without any hesitation. This is perfect for on the run video and action sports. There are 1/4in screws all over the top and side so it's very easy and convenient to mount accessories like a small led light or maybe even a monitor or microphone. As well as a 1/4in on the bottom for tripod or quick release attachment. I would recommend purchasing a quick release plate to screw into the top to make it easier to take your camera on and off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my Canon XA10... I was looking for a versatile rig for my XA10 and checked out many alternatives. This one fits my camera and mic attachment (make sure you measure properly) and is one sturdy sunofva-gun. They also put threaded holes all over the unit so that you can customize it for your own setup. After much searching, this was the best solution for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a picture says more than ... you know! I bought it in B&H store,so first of all thanks to the excellent service of B&H.i was looking for some boys stuff to make more out of my DSLR than just shooting a quick movie and the advice - would more say consultancy at B&H was superior excellent. I did spend more than I wanted - but it was worth every single dime!if you're looking for a starter rig and you want to continue by having a reliable tool - do not go for the plastic stuff!save your buck a month or two and it will pay it off.this PAPARAZZI rig is it worth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for On the Go What makes this one better then the Cam Caddie is that it has more customizable options. With the many different screw holes, you can attach multiple attachments anywhere you wish, and know it's secured and not going to fall off. It also doesn't look like a plastic toy. It also comes with a MANFROTTO BRAKET 143BKT. Which allows you even more mounting options. It's a good starter rig. And if you plan on expanding it later, Shape has other accessories that can be added on. And the size can fit multiple camera. The only real downside is that it does have a bit of weight to it, and there's no screw holes for the backhandle on the front side. I also wish the bottom was thinner, so it would be easier to take the camera bettery out when using the Paparazzi more like a cage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Product I use this for my DLSR video rig. Initial impression was it's light weight yet a tough build. Despite being skeptical of the setup, I actually enjoyed the method and direction of grip very much. I did not intend on using it handheld because I didn't think it would make much of a difference in terms of shaky footage. But when I tried it handheld, it came out very well. Instead of a rig where you hold from the side and are putting more strain on your arm, this rig you can hold in front of you at upper chest level, support with your second arm easily, and thus add extra support from your upper body. And with all the accessories you've mounted on it, you'll need the additional strength to allow you longer shooting time handheld. Combined with the light weight, this thing is a beauty to hold. It's effortless. All the extra slots with threading are great. Bought my own 1/4 screws and fastened everything up. Space can be a little tight once things start getting mounted. Despite all the holes, you'll only be able to mount so many things in certain areas, depending on the size of your accessories, before getting crowded. But the size is just right, and adding anymore to this rig may not be ideal. One note: If you are using larger, longer lenses, you will need additional support for the lenses. I purchased 4 2-inch L brackets, fastened them in pairs to create U-shapes, and attached them to the front of this Papparrazi rig. Because of multiple hole options, I was able to configure the U-shaped brackets to where they were supporting the lenses. Cheaper, yet comparably effective, method compared to rod support. In all, I'm able to mount my 60D, 24-70 L lens, Beachtek XLR adapter, shotgun mic, and wireless receiver. Love this product a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PAPARAZZI I by Shape is nimble and quick This is a great handle to do quick filming in tight spots. Shape has constructed the handle out of aluminum so as to give it a solid but light feel. The handle has many many threaded mounts in variuos sizes for attachment of almost any accesory you might use. The only problem I have with this glorious piece of equipment is that the 1/4 20 screw that is uced to mount the camera is a little hard to get to. GREAT PRODUCT! SOLID BUILD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! I got this for my 7D and have loved how great it works as a top handle grip. The different sized threads placed all over this thing is so great! I have been able to attach anything I want to it and the possibilities are endless.
