Hey Mocarg,

Yes, I use shoulder rig with my DSLR which is T2i too. The rig is maded by me. I invented the shape and design and I buy some materials (aluminum pipes mainly) and after few hours drilling and grinding the result is this:

I use 1.25 kg counterweight, which I mount on the two rear pipes.

About steps of making – if you are interested, contact me via my profile and I’ll answer you.

About the price – If you decide to do it yourself, it will cost you around ten times less than to buy it from the store, and the final result is almost the same.

Finally I can say that the soulder rig is very very useful and helpful tool. Footage will look more professional when it’s shot with DSLR rig.

P.S. I still don’t have time to finish the follow focus :)

Regards,
Jacko

Check thecinecity.com It’s an indian company that sell their on ebay. The dslt rig is very affordable and it works pretty good. It is a good option if you are on a budget.

@Jackoart: That looks really nice :) Can you explain a bit what is follow-focus? Some kind of autofocus for video?

The best shoulder rig I can recommend would be the Habbycam HD brace but if you cant afford that their SD brace is a suitable rig as well. Quality stuff!

Follow focus is an extension for a Rig. It will help you pull the focus more precisely (like rack focus for example). Will become very handy if you work with long lenses or lenses with wider aperture. IMO , it is very mandatory but it is just me.
