The VariZoom StingShot is a modular support system for video DSLR or compact HD videocameras. It's based on 8 in (20.3 cm) standard 15mm rods and features a camera plate with quick release and a rear-mounted pistol grip.
The camera plate mounts the camera, including a quick-release element, and accepts the aluminum 15mm rods. The plate is adjustable both vertically and horizontally.
Crafted of solid aluminum and steel, the pistol grip will last a lifetime. It clamps to the dual 15mm rods to provide rigid support for a wide array of shooting styles, potentially functioning as both a grip and a chest pad. The joint articulates horizontally to a position perpendicular to the rig, enabling "kickstand mode" for setting down the system on level surfaces.
And of course the system is modular, so it's a breeze to add extra components such as longer rods, a matte box, handgrips, a shoulder pad, or a shock-absorbing body mount to the Stinger.
