Improving the small shoulder support

(1 comment)

Does anyone remember the shoulder unicycle? It used to be just an aluminum bracket to rest against the shoulder. Very simple and very effective.

In the meantime, I have added an L-bracket with a hot shoe mount for a microphone holder and purchased a Swit LED camera light which comes with an adapter for Sony L series batteries that has to go somewhere. Time for some improvements. Now it's a pimped shoulder unicycle:

In retro-perspective I just could have bought a rail support. But where's the fun in that?

I will have to buy or to do something like that for my camera one day. Even if it's much much lighter than yours, I still shake a lot sometime as soon as I have to handle it for a moment in the same position, and of course, as soon as I have to zoom on something, it only make my shaking worst.
Once Timduru find a nice one, it was vey light, cheap, and has three positions, on the shoulder, or as a little tripod, or like some kind of stabilizer. I will have to work on that idea before the next convention, I have plenty of alluminium left over from the making of a big skunk tail I did once, maybe I can try to do something with that too.
