Speaking of latest products, they recently brought out a new ultra compact camera rig – the PocketShot.
When packed down, it’s looks like an oversized Swiss Army Knife, and offers a similar number of configurations to the utility blade. Extremely compact (158x35x46mm), very light (0.35kg/0.77bs) with a payload of 2kg/4lbs in most configurations. Whilst it’ll take the weight of a 5D mark iii with standard lens, it’s recommended for use with cameras around the 0.7kg (1.5lbs). So perhaps more suitable for Micro Four Thirds cameras or the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema.
Clearly designed for the consumer market, with a price to match at $199.99. However use with the above mentioned camera setups could get you some use in the professional field if you were travelling extremely light, and/or working in very restricted areas.
I’ve used Edelkrone’s previous ultra compact rig – the PocketRig, and was quite disappointed with its stability. Hopefully the PocketShot with all Delrin plastic design and adjustable tension supports offer a better, more stable solution.
