Lots of Handheld, heavy rig
Posted 19 May 2010 - 05:55 PM
What do you recommend to save my back from croaking out after day 2? I would say i'm decently fit (considering i'm 21), but I know it's gonna be rough. CVS-style back brace? It would add a bit of support but not look absurd.
What have you used for heavy rigs and long shoots?

Although, a letus and support, could make the EX3 front heavy compared to using a video lens. It's the balance that key, rather than just the camera weight on its own.

Try to get a shoulder rig that puts your eye on the eyepiece, is balanced and doesn't dig into your shoulder. You might supplement it with some neoprene padding. The weight might be scary at first, but you'll get used to it.

Actually, for the EX3, you'd want this one: http://www.bhphotovi...ck_Compact.html
