I have some great news for those of you who struggle using your shoulder rig and don’t know how to make it lighter and easier to work with. All you need is the inexpensive Atlas Camera Support. Ever since I’ve tried it out on my own I’m addicted. It’s super easy to use and makes a huge difference in the quality of shots but also in your comfort level. Specially if you are a run & gun type of filmmaker, wedding videographer or even a documentary cameraman who’s always on the go. This device was invented by a cameraman who himself struggled like the rest of us and came up with this neat product. Check out my video below for more details.
To buy this camera support just go to www.atlascamerasupport.com and let them know Tom Antos sent you 😉
