Very usefull tool – Hands Free Shoulder Pad for Digital Camera/Camcorder Reviews

posted by razvanutza on 10/21/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Very usefull when handling cameras/DSLRs: The weight is transferred to your body; no hand fatigue Image stabilization You can actually take pictures with one hand Lightweight When needed you can detach the camera very quickly
Cons:
You can only take pictures / film at the head level
Other:
I use it for my DSLRs (a Canon 7D and Nikon D300) with tele zooms (70-200mm 2.8, above 1kg each) and it really helps. Last week I was at an outdoor sports event and as it was raining I was able to shoot with one hand while holding an umbrella.
Bottomline:
A great tool for photographers that need to keep an eye on the action but cannot use a tripod.
