WristShot – camera support for mobile camera people


High definition cameras are getting bigger each year, but they’re still not big enough to rest on your shoulder like the pro ones, so if you’ve got a lot of shooting to do, wrist fatigue is going to bite. If this is you, then take a look at the WristShot from Hoodman. The WristShot works by transferring the weight of the camera to the forearm instead of the wrist, leaving fingers free to twiddle and operate the camera and taking the pressure off. The support arm has 5 degrees of freedom and when the action’s off you can let go of the camera and even hang your arm by your side and everything is still secure.

You can mount cameras on it via the 1/4″ stud found on almost every camera ever made or use the pro mounting plate for the bigger cameras. It also looks perfect for the new range of high def digital SLRs that are about now with their weird video camera ergonomics. $US199.99

WristShot™ transfers camcorder weight to the forearm eliminating wrist fatigue, increasing stability and freeing up the hand to operate the camera. WristShot™ fits all camcorders up to 10 pounds. With 5 axis adjustment options WristShot™ fits all body types and shooting styles. Quick release camcorder mounting system with universal tripod adapter mount makes changing shooting modes quick and easy.
