This is a great inexpensive way to save your shoulder when running bigger cameras such as the Alexa.

A little clumsy, but protects my shoulder

A little awkward to use, but I haven't found a better solution when operating an Alexa Mini or other Frankenstein rig.

Wish I had bought one of these sooner!

I started out shooting MTV in the 90's, EVERYTHING was handheld. My shoulder basically had a callous on it all the time so it never really bugged me. Now that I am old (!) I don't do handheld as often, but I have started shooting wireless camera for local pro football games and sometimes for the pro baseball team as well. First, the camera is heavy because of the wireless rig. Second, it is sports so that camera stays up there for long stretches at a time (usually about 4hrs with only small breaks for football). Third, there is often a week or two between shoots so that skin never gets tough, it heals completly and goes back to soft skin between games. As a result my shoulder ends up getting pretty raw. Last season one of the guy who I shoot football with got one of these from his wife as a gift. We teased the heck out of him, but he used it all season and was very happy about it. So after the first pre-season game of this year when I was wrecked and he was smiling I thought it was time to give it a try. I have used it 3 times so far and I have been very happy with the results, I highly recommed this if the skin on your should gets rubbed raw from handheld camera operating.

Excellent shoulder protection

I've been using this product for 4 months to pad my shoulder when carry long telephoto lens. It has eliminated the bruising & soreness I would typically have after a day in the field. Several reviews mentioned the odor of the product. The pads are neoprene, hand washing with dish washing soap will remove the residual oils and the odor.

Veterans asking where they can get one

I bought this for working cinema due to everything being on dovetails and unbalanced rods and rails and then recently picked up a day call to shoot hockey for broadcast. ENG broadcast cameras as many of you know have inbuilt shoulder pads, but I find the darn thing never lines up and I end up jamming the lock plate into my shoulder blade for 3 hours and go home with a massive bruise on my shoulder, so This Time I decided to bring my shoulder pad. WOW! OK first off, I thought all the veterans were going to grief me for having a comfort cushion, nope, everybody was asking where to get one, and moaning how they wish they had known about this 20 years ago. As for actually shooting with it, I found either pad to be too thick, but when I set it to the internal structure padding (You'll understand) and left out the thicker pads it sit juuust right on my shoulder and took the brunt out of the metal plate digging into my should bone. The most painless handheld shoot I've ever had. Buy this thing, its worth it, stop thinking about it and buy it. Do it.

question

I was looking for shoulder protection for carrying a 5 lb. tripod with a 8.6 lb. 600mm lens and 2 lb. camera attached. This sounds like it was designed for something different than that, but does anyone know if this would work while I'm carrying that gear on my shoulder with two legs of the tripod pressing down, not quite balanced on my shoulder with about 15 lbs. of total weight?
Asked by: Den D.
I bought it for the exact same reason. Ive found that it works well but must be fastened and adjusted properly.
