The aim of this kit is to provide the operator maximum flexibility while shooting both outdoors and indoors. It is a very portable and handy kit.

This is one of the best kits at this price point available on the market today.

Customer Reviews

Not comfortable shoulder pad.
Prabu Ravi
Also, it's incredibly hard to actually tighten and loosen the metal clamp that holds the shoulder rod in place.
AKR
This rig has a nice quality feel to it. rails are aluminum I believe, very solid.

I am using this rig with my Canon 7d. FancierStudio products are not commonly reviewed by many DSLR enthusiast sites, so i had to base my purchase decision on the two reviews thats here on amazon. I did not receive any product documentation and the website has very little information and a "chat with us" feature that doesnt seem to work. I couldnt find a phone number either. The link to its facebook site required me to login (I have stopped using facebook since I dont trust their privacy policy). Everything works as described, basically. I couldnt vouch very much for the rig itself because i have not used it in this capacity yet. The mattebox is on the cheapy side (plastic) and the blue handles are a kind of sticky silicone rubber that i dont know if i quite like. My biggest criticism is that the follow focus mechanism doesnt seem to have an adjustment for taller cameras - like the 1d or if you use a battery grip. It appears that it would have been a simple adjustment to raise the bracket for this adjustment, but i cant see a simple way do this, so i have to remove the battery grip. The new 5D appears to be coming with a battery grip so i dont know if this would work with that camera. The other thing is that the rails (rods are on the short side. I can barely fit the mattebox and with the Canon 70-200 2.8L II lens. And this is another thing, they have made an adjustment so that i can use the mattebox with the battery grip but not with the followfocus.

UPDATE: APRIL 10, 2012 - DONT BUY

After using this item for a few weeks i now have a reduced opinion of the unit and i think its overpriced. There are quite a few similar units on the market and many are cheaper and allow you just to buy the part that you want. The only part of it that is worthwhile really is the follow focus.

I am using this rig for my Sony NEX-3 camera and Sony Z1U camcorder! The build quality is great with the matte box being all plastic and the frame being metal. Managed to mount it on a tripod and the shoulder mount works well. Does require a lot of tightening and set up time would be around 25min max. I've provided pictures above of my set up for reference. The follow focus has a long enough cord to fit pretty much all lens sizes. The white ring around the follow focus allows me to make measurement markings on it using a sharpe marker and cleans off nicely. Over all nice set for the pro and beginner.

This product is interestingly useful. I find many things already mentioned by others to be the case, however, with some simple adjustments, I was able to make it work better for me than standard configuration. The device is designed for you to hold the handles a bit away from the shoulder so you view the LCD of your camera. With no counter balance weight (behind you) for the shoulder pad, it's really not too steady, and when you take one hand off e.g for focus adjustments on your camera, you balance is tilted. So, my solution was to rearrange things.

1. I put a viewfinder on my Canon Mk III DSLR
2. Shortened the Rod distance between the shoulder pad and the handles so me eye can reach the viewfinder.
3. Tilted the rod connecting the rig to the shoulder pad,,45 degree downward versus straight horizontal.
4. Removed the right hand handle and placed in front of the rig (on the left rail inverted, So the handle is centered just below the Matte/front end of the Camera lens)

This now means I have three major points of contacts for stability...the front handle, the viewfinder and then the shoulder mount. The left handle is not needed for this setup. You hold the front handle with your right hand which is now centered relative to the body of the camera, the shoulder pad is on the right shoulder as well. You pull back tight on the handle while shooting so your forehead on the viewfinder and shoulder against the shoulder pad affords more stability. Your left hand is free to be used for focusing and available as a 4th point of contact.

If I have the time, will post a picture for this configuration but it's probably the most brilliant way to use this rig. It makes it more versatile and actually functional more so than it's original/intended design.

It's expensive for what you get, but it's collapsable and portable. If you get this, do yourself a favor and take a trip to home depot for 10-22 5/8" wing screws (exact model number) to replace the flimsy plastic knobbed ones it comes with. Besides that, it's not bad.

The pictures are very accurate to what this thing looks and feels like. I was originally worried it would be light, or that the rails would be some sort of plastic, but its not. This rig has a nice quality feel to it. rails are aluminum I believe, very solid. The follow focus is very solid. I am very happy with this rig. I am 6'1 200lbs and this thing feels great in my hands.

A couple things to note. The barn doors are plastic, as well as the hinges for it, its fine for now, but I could imagine them drooping over time, or losing their grip. Metal would be better. Make sure you add weights to the back to balance out the rig otherwise it will be very front heavy.
