Hi,

 

Would anyone have a Arri 16 BL shoulder pod which they are willing to sell.

 

Or if anyone would have an idea where I can purchase this product.

 

Shooting a short film with the camera, mostly handheld, hence the requirement.

 

Please do let me know.

 

Thanks,

It can be done.  Quite uncomfortable, but do-able.

The best way to shoulder mount an Arri !6BL is with a periscope type viewfinder, that brings the camera back over your shoulder. With the straight type viewfinder you're basically into using a shoulder brace type arrangement.

If he's using a 400ft. mag, he may still want a shoulder brace.

Keep an eye out on ebay.  Shoulder supports pop up every now and then.  I would also contact Visual Products to see what they may have in the warehouse.

You'll find the off set V/F illustrated here: http://www.visualpro.../16BLManual.pdf I know news cameramen used to use thus V/F when shooting handheld with 400 ft loads. The A type is just a pain to use hand held.
