One of the best ways to make a "moving tripod" is to use the natural baseline between your shoulder and your hand. This was the basis of almost every portable pro film and video camera made before, let's say, 2005. But with today's compact camcorders and video-shooting SLRs, what are you to do? Carrying a camera with two hands in front of you while trying to view the screen is an invitation to shaky shots.
Get stable mobility while shooting off the shoulder
You can get back to the stability of shoulder mounting with this clever shoulder-mount rig from Canon. Designed to improve your video shooting with everything from a traditional DSLR to a professional cinema-optimized camcorder, the EV2 is adjustable in almost every dimension imaginable, and hosts a wide variety of 15mm rod-based accessories (a common mounting protocol for cinema-related gear).
Three adjustable pads in the shoulder mount assembly enable you to dial in a custom fit for fatigue-free shooting. The camera plate can be micro-adjusted for perfect trim and balance. And the easy-grip handle attaches to the end of one of your 15mm rod rails, and can be rotated to your preferred grip angle.
