    Dot Line DL-0370 reviews

    DL-0370 Hands-free Video Stabilizer for DSLR and Camcorders is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great foundation I've been hunting for the perfect dslr shoulder stabilizer for nearly two years. Most are overpriced, too heavy, and ergonomically incorrect. I discovered this one via another manufacturer's product, which incorporates this stock as an element of a more expensive package. So I bought this on the idea that I could build my own system using this as the foundation. I haven't been disappointed. I was able to mount indexpensive follow focus components on top of this stock, and the result is that, for the first time, I have the rig I want: An affordable shoulder rig that: 1. Is balanced I can completely let go with my hands without the rig falling over. 2. Is light as possible no shoulder-numbing counter balance weights need to be added. 3. Includes follow focus for smooth cinematic focusing on the fly. 4. Is ergonomic Z-finder is positioned in front of my right eye; I can comfortably use rig for longer than a few minutes. 5. Can be quickly reconfigured camera can quick-release for use on tripod. You might think that it would be hard to breathe while holding still a rig that rests partially on your lower chest, but it's not that bad. The camera will move slightly every time you take a breath, but it's easy to adjust your breathing pattern slightly for maximum stability (it simply involves being mindful not to push out your chest when inhaling it's easy to expand lungs down and sideways instead).

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT THE GREATEST DESIGN I just go this and started playing around with it. I guess I'll keep it, since it was pretty cheap. The build quality is decent. There's a small arm that swivels that connects to your camera. Seems like there's a lot of stress/pressure on the point where that swivel connects with the main body of this stabilizer. But I can live with it. The more problematic issue is the lack of a counterbalance on the backside. I.e., the arm that goes down your back. Unless you're shooting with a light GoPro or a point-and-shoot, there simply isn't enough weight on the other end. Let's say you've got a Canon 60D or a Rebel on this gadget with a microphone on your hotshoe. After 15 minutes, your back is gonna feel stressed. Plus the pad on your ribs and the bar that rests on your shoulder near your neck also will get uncomfortable and will need extra padding. i placed a seat cushion between my ribs and the part of this gadget that rests on your ribs, and it immediately became more comfortable. I also wrapped padding around the shoulder bar and that too helped. But the main thing that helped was adding more weight to the back bar. I actually took a 2 1/2 lb barbell weight and hooked it on with a bungee cord, just to see what it would do. Guess what? It helped a lot! It seemed like my back wasn't being pulled forward anymore. Good luck, if you buy this. It's not that bad. :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's great for the money you pay ! This DSLR stabilizer is really useful when I go shoot. Obviously, there are other stabilizers out there that can do an incredible job, but thats also probably around hundreds of dollars. If you're just starting in making videos, I'd totally recommend this. The most important thing is that it gets the job done !! The only thing that I don't find too great about it is how most camera's will be heavier than the rig itself but thats okay, it's still pretty safe as long as you wear it properly and also the belt that comes with it to secure its stability on you.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Great Foundation This rig is a fantastic foundation for building a shoulder rig for dslr filmmaking. I added a follow focus unit, rails and mounting block, and using the taller of the two camera mounting platforms that are included with this kit, it all just fits at eye level (perfect for use with Zacuto Z-finder). The ergonomics of this are about as close to perfect as I think are possible. And, no heavy counter weights are necessary when using this rig, unlike many far more expensive alternatives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for DSLR essential This is my first ever review on B&H because this product is so great for the price. If you look at other DSLR rigs, they are bulky, expensive, and not at all discrete. This item is perfect for DSLR video, works as advertised, and is priced unbelievably low. It doesn't stand out like the huge shoulder rigs I've seen, and really is hands free. I use this with my D800 and several prime lenses, plus a video head which I'll link to below. I have a Rode microphone on top - this is my rig for run and gun DSLR video. I need to be hands free to switch lenses and make camera adjustments. PROS 1) Price. I am filming some documentary footage and this project is all on my own dime, so I can't shell out hundreds for a rig. 2) Effectiveness. This thing works just like it says. Once you start shooting DSLR video, you immediately realize that you need a stabilizer or tripod. The DSLR is awkward to hold, it is not ergonomically designed for video. This thing really does what it says. Things to know: In the box you get the one-piece rig itself, a strap that wraps around your chest to make the rig hands-free, two extenders, and a thin bag to carry it all. The strap can easily be taken off, and once you adjust it it holds the rig close to you so your equipment won't fall. I don't use the two extenders, I keep the camera close to my face. The rig itself hooks over your shoulder and is supported by a chest pad. It is surprisingly comfortable. I can see how if you had a wider chest this rig might not fit. I'm 5'10 and 185 lbs, and it fits fine. The chest pad can be adjusted and tightened, I have it out to about %80 of what it can do, so if you are a big person this probably won't fit. You can fold up the rig for travel. This rig does not have a handle or a quick release plate. I'm fine with both of these things and I'll explain why. There is a Dot Line version of this rig with a handle, but it is just for support and doesn't let you pivot the camera. That one costs twice as much and there seems to be on benefit since this rig is hand's free, you don't need a handle. I ordered a Manfrotto fluid head which I needed anyway and mounted it on top of this rig (with an adapter), the fluid head can pivot the camera. I put the handle in backwards. I also had a quick release plate in my camera bag, so I added that on top, it helps a lot and I would highly recommend getting it, the link is below. You'll need a few 20 to 3/8 screw adapters to make this work.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's ok, but poorly designed. This Video Stabilizer positions your camera very close to your face and there are no way to adjust it to move further away. ... I guess, there is a purpose for this product for someone, who mounts his/her camera on this stabilizer and does not need to access any of the camera features/adjustments, because it is very hard to do.IF there was another way to adjust this product, so that it can move away from your body further away, then it would be a lot more useful, in my opinion

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally found it! Comfortable, stable and fits over my D cup! I use it for both, still and video. Used it on an antelope hunt, found I had to pull the chest piece away from my body for stable video when breathing hard from the chase, but other than that, I enjoyed the convenience of the hands free. Excellent Product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from for the price, it does the job. great, i used it in a wedding. to move around fast. drilled a hole to insert a monopod to avoid breathing. the threads ripped off the cheap plastic, so just superglued a metal adapter to fill the void. being metal, the threads wont rip off. without a monopod, it is difficult to stay tripod-steady. which is why i gave it a 4 star rating. i didn't need the strap which actually was useless to me. i don't see the point of it but perhaps, being hands free, it would prevent the camera from falling to the ground if someone knocked it off your shoulders by mistake.
