With several mounting points on its top plate, the Steady Shot is compatible with any quick-release clamp or photo/video head.

Excellent quality and delivery.

Accomplishes my Goal

Big lenses like the 200-400mm just get too heavy after a while, and very often a tripod of monopod isn't right for the situation. This steady shot item easily & quickly plugs right into the vest and the effect is that the weight is lifted from my arms. I can concentrate on focusing etc much better with the weight relieved..

Good but not great

This does make your camera steadier, and it is comfortable for that, so I give it 3 stars. If it folded up flat, I would give it 5 stars. As it is, it's rather bulky to deal with when it's not in the Cotton Carrier.

This is so cool!!

Do you have a heavy lens?? This is great for hiking even if you have a tripod and backpack. If you wear your cotton carrier and keep your camera out, you can quickly attach this to the cotton carrier and with a tripod mount you can quickly mount your long lens ring, take a deep breath, and shoot hand held with great results. You can then remove it, reattach your camera and continue to hike with the camera secure and not flopping around. The steady shot straps easily to a carribeaner or your back pack when not in use. Just find a tree or something to lean on and steady yourself and your good. It works! It completely articulates in several places so you can keep your camera viewfinder where you need it with your hands mostly free and not supporting any weight.

I use long, heavy lenses which it did not really cope with.

The perfect compliment to the Cotton Carry system. Provides a sure and steady platform for taking that photo. I like it very much.

Steady!

will not function with a heavy setup .. may work okay if you're stationary or sitting with a D7100 and a sigma 50 500 no way ... I exceeded its capabilities.

As anyone used the SteadyShot with either a Canon EF 100-400 mm lens or a Canon RF 100-500 mm lens? Are these too heavy for comfortable use?
Asked by: James L
Customers have used the Cotton Carrier Steady Shot with much larger lenses such as the 200-400mm (about 6 inches longer and 4 pounds heaver than the 2 lenses you mentioned). So it is comfortable to use and it will help stabilizer your photos and videos.
