Anybody know if a rig like this can be created for an Arri S with a 400ft mag? The camera is way to heavy with the mag to do handheld with a pistol grip.

This rig look looks like you can get some smooth movement.

Thanks

I don't know about those, but I have a shoulder mount, which I never use, that is made for the arriflex 16s. It's pretty old and uncomfortable but it works surprisingly well for such a simple design. Pretty much, it consists of a metal U that locks onto your shoulder. A bar from the metal U extends and attaches to the tripod mount of the camera. Then you hold onto the ordinary hand grip with your hand. I can't find any pictures of it online but it was made by arriflex.

Cavision makes some components that you could probably use to create your own rig.

You can see an Arriflex 16S rig on this web page (for some reason this forum software won't allow the image to be displayed):

Combined with one of these:

To make something like this:

Can't vouch for any of these as I haven't used them. Just some ideas.

Visual products has a ken hill rig that might also do the job for you. I have one for my SR3 and it works well.
