Hi,

I've been wanting to create a shoulder rig for my ARRI S. A rig that is simular to the DVRIGPRO but can handle a Arri S with a 400 ft mag.

Any suggestions on starting up something like this?

That will be fun, given the S' awfully designed viewfinder.

If you're going to video, flip the camera upside down and it will wrap your shoulder nicely. With the orientable eyepiece attachment you can even do this with the 400' mag attached.
