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
