Use of a tripod may also allow for an easier approach to photography. In relation to film/video, use of the tripod offers stability within a shot as well as certain desired heights. A tripod of some sort is often necessary for professional photography.

This little unit pretty much does exactly what it says. You can film without touching/holding the camera, making it easier to zoom, focus, and see where you're going. You can also "hold" the camera longer without fatigue. The brace is plastic, but feels sturdy enough to take any reasonable abuse. The foam covering looks a bit flimsy (both in terms of eventual decay or coming off), but easy to repair in that event. I bought this for DSLR video. It places the camera in a good position for viewing the screen, but a little two far away for using a LCD lounge/eye piece. After playing around a bit, I found I could reverse the middle bracket piece to position the camera perfectly. A word of perspective: this doesn't give you the smoothness of a real steadicam rig. It's attached to your body, so when you breath, it moves.

This thing is awesome. I run two film crews shooting on DSLRs in remote countries with no support with custom rails packages for their accessories, and both kits use this shoulder mount for body stabilization. It's just so versatile! Yes, it is cheap as hell. You could snap it over your knee. But you know what? If you're worried, just buy EIGHT of them for the price of half a RedRock or Cavision or whoever-else shoulder mount. I say again: incredible.

I'm a pretty big guy, so this thing isn't the most comfortable, but I know that's because I'm big. It's not a flaw of the device. It's made of plastic, but it doesn't appear to be weak, and it does exactly what it's advertised to do. It's a nice little shoulder mount, especially for the price. This seems to be a rare case of getting a little more than what you paid for. I wouldn't stress the mounting arm too much with a lot of add-ons, though, because, in the end, it's plastic. Great for my T2i/550D and other lightweight DSLR's/camcorders.

Stability: A tripod on the floor gives great stability, but this shoulder support greatly dampens the shake that can come from straight hand holding. Subtle twists of the wrist cause exaggerated up-down, right-left, and tilt motion. With my daughter's wedding coming up, I was looking at various body braces to better stabilize my video camera, thinking that I might make one rather than pay a high price, but then I saw this product. It looked as if it had potential, and the price was low enough to make it worth a try. I certainly wasn't going to make one more economically!

Durability: Some have said that this product is too fragile. For use with my Canon HV-20 and HV-30 cameras, I detect no flexing or likelihood of breakage with normal use. The support seems quite tough, unless one has a very large and heavy camera (which should have its own shoulder support). To break this product, I would have to do it deliberately, over my knee or by standing on it. I do not imagine how it would break in "normal use," unless perhaps an earlier version of the product had a weaker design or material.

Comfort: My back gets tired as I hold a video camera up and ready for a long time. With this shoulder support, I can let my arms and back relax a lot. At a wedding last year, I ran out of steam early in the evening, due to the need to hold the camera up to my eye, and soon I took many shots from a chair or struggled to be in the best positions to capture important moments. At the wedding events of this year, though, this product allowed my camera to hang from my shoulder rather than be held up with my hands. I was even able to rest my arms on the stem, staying ready to shoot, rather than having to hold my arms up all the time.

If only this thing were constructed of reliable materials, it would be a great piece of equipment. I purchased and used one successfully on 3-4 occasions, until last weekend. While shooting video with my Nikon D7000 and a lightweight lens, all of a sudden the tripod-threaded screw holding the extension to the support just broke (well, the cheesy, 1/32 inch thick plastic which holds the captive nut broke), and my camera separated completely from the rig. Just lucky I had a good grip on the camera with my free hand, or I would have wound up with a $1,500 doorstop when all was said and done.

I assure you, if any purchaser would look at the photo of just how thin the plastic is that holds this entire mount together, they wouldn't dare purchase it. Unfortunately, the beefy plastic piece which is visible gives the impression that it is a sturdy mount, and hides the flimsy attachment point, only capable of inspection AFTER it fails and you lose your camera.

Sure, it's a great price, and in concept it works fairly well. But even if it were free would it be worth risking your precious camera equipment?

In my opinion, all those 5 star reviews are from purchasers who just haven't YET experienced a failure.

This product really should be removed from the market, and, in my opinion, any company who keeps selling this piece of crap, in the face of the scores of negative reviews regarding breakage, just renders ALL their products suspect.

Take my advice and stay away from this, and all the other similar no-brand-name clones. Stick with an all metal construction that is going to take care of your camera!
