Whats not to love about this system ? I mounted a CANON xlh1a to it with a 7" lilliput monitor and a luxman light and it looks truly outstanding !
The only thing i do suggest is that the company should include 2 rail extenders because it would have been nice to use the 6" rails with the 10" because the swiss rods are just a little bulky but ill still tweak it to my needs
Also it would not hurt to pick up a c90 clamp as i like my handles wider and more in line with my bodies natural position plus i think its more comfortable being I'm a big guy ....
The friction arm is truly outstanding and the entire system is a great package to start with and easy to add to as your set up grows , thank you also because shipping was super fast . Now i cant wait to show it off .

For value alone, this product receives 5 stars without hesitation. You're just not going to find another rig out there that offers such a complete package at this price point. Take advantage of the free friction mount and amazingly versatile Swiss rods (offered as of April 2013) and this deal becomes almost too good to pass up even for the casual user. The workmanship and quality exceed expectations and while it doesn't look as durable as some of the significantly more expensive rigs, it's certainly going to hold up to the demands of everyday use.

Pros:

- machine parts are of high quality and workmanship is top-notch.
- looks the part - anodized aluminum in black with red accents and aluminum rods looks very nice.
- extremely versatile and with the addition of the Swiss mounts almost unmatched connectivity for add-ons.
- good fit, weight, and feel.
- multiple formats - traditional, shot-gun, etc.

Cons:

- the parts are commonly machined resulting in some being "upside" down which detracts slightly from appearance only.
- no instructions included in the box, however the video on their website is very complete.
- no easy way to carry without complete dis-assembly and no case included.

Overall very easy to recommend and anyone looking to get a professional quality video rig without spending a mint for one of the more common "name brand" rigs out there.

The rig is probably one of the best budget kits on the market. Most higher end rigs are much more expensive (500+ USD) so this is great in a pinch. Can be adjusted to multiple configurations - shoulder mounted with a flip out LCD, shoulder mounted with a field monitor, Chest supported rig, and as a 15mm rod setup for use on a tripod.

The biggest issue I have with this is the quality of the red screws which are used to tighten all the pieces together. They are a MAJOR pain to lock/unlock. Despite tightening them with a large amount of force they do not hold the rods securely... especially bad are the handle bars which tends to swing and splay. The screw knobs are also quite sharp and tend to cut/bruise your hands as you tighten/release them. Also the stainless steel rods tend to get scratched VERY easily.
Now you may say that is a compromise with a budget rig but:
1. SmallRig has cheap block and 15mm accessories that have GREAT screw mechanisms with washers and knobs with no shap edges. So it is possible to make them cheap
2. The looseness of the connections and the difficulty in using the screws means you will hesitate to change configurations - one of the big plusses of an assemblable rig vs something like a cheap foldable spider rig.

The rods and rig overall are light which is a good thing if you have heavy camera+lens or if you have a full rig setup with follow focus and field monitor but not a good thing if you have a light DSLR or m4/3 camera and light lens only setup. The basic rule for rig stability is heavier load = more stable and less shakes. Those with lighter setups can add weight to the rig and it becomes workable but its something to keep in mind.

The reason I bought this over other models of the same type of equipment is the build. In the zoom photos you could see that many other manufacturers used plastic for the little screw handles - that looks very shaky!!!! I would not trust plastic in that part, too easy to break. This unit uses metal wherever it counts. Also included was an articulating arm (very nice!) and 2 swiss rod with holes for mounting accessories, which I can see how they will be useful. My only gripe is a lack of counterweight that mounts directly onto the shoulder pad. I did buy the weight and extra rods for $75 (on Amazon), but I'd rather have the less expensive counterweight that many other models make available that goes directly on the shoulder pad. I don't like paying $60 just for a fancy 3 pound piece of metal (some of them cost more!!).

I ordered this in order to start DSLRing all over the place. I will later add a follow focus and matte box. For the price it is a good value. I guess you get what you pay for, but I don't need much. I took a star away because it did not come with comprehensive instructions. I took another star away because the shoulder pad could do with some serious Research and Development. Not comfortable and it doesn't sit right on your shoulder.
