Comments about Chrosziel DV Balancer with Belly Rest:
It actually works!! It's very well made and hardly weights anything at all. A very good product. The shots are a lot more steady and smoother than on a regular hand held. The bottom counter balance pad is easily removable. Works great with the base plate system from Chrosziel, which I recommend getting. Makes it a super light weight system. Perfect for interview or TV work. You can really let go of both hands and the camera will stay balanced. I find that very useful when you have to make adjustments/setting and dont want to take down the camera off your shoulder.
Overall weight limit is really 8 pounds max because the knob connecting the shoulder rest to the mount is only a screw down on a rod. With the weight of an EX1 it will slowly drag down. You will have to to readjust after a while. Also the bottom pad wears out easily. I taped it out to protect from wearing out the foam protection.
It's a nice addition to the gear. Slides on perfect and fast to the Chrosziel Baseplate or Grip Mount.
