Great little tool. Solid customer service.
I ordered the pocketrig for a shoot I had the following weekend- got a defective model. Thought it was a design flaw, but I just got one that wasn't functioning properly. As others have mentioned, it is heavy. I do like that the weight adds more stability, but as my arms tire at the end of a shoot, the fatigue shakes can set in. Still getting the hang of being as smooth as possible with it, but looking at some of my "handheld" footage using it last week, my steadiness has gotten better with it. The extra point of contact makes a difference. Haven't used the mounting arms yet, so I can't speak to that, but the overall construction is fantastic, and the ability to fold everything back into itself is really really cool. I'm definitely closer to 4.5 than 4 stars, and my only complaint that I haven't mentioned was that I initially got a broken one and had hoped to use it for a previous shoot where I would have needed it even more. Customer service was super helpful and super prompt in getting me a new one though. Solid team over there.
Like the shoulder brace but the whole unit is to heavy
Fast shipping and the rig is very well made to last! I run and gun a lot and this provides a lot of versatility!
Great, unique gadget!
Very handy when it comes to stabilizing my camera small rig when shooting video. No one else offers such stabilizer on web. Highly recomend it. It would be grate if the price for it would be little lower!
For my workflow it works great with a very specific gear setup. Perfectly matched to an original Blackmagic Pocket camera when using older large cine zoom lenses. It stabilizes exceptionally well despite its relatively light weight.
Just perfect ...
I absolutely love the simplicity and utility of this.
Nice piece of gear but a little on the heavy side
I liked it but found that I'll have to try and get used to using it hooked into my belt. With everything attached (camera w/cage, lens , follow focus , monitor , ) it's just too heavy to try and shoot from my shoulder with it. The part itself is very heavy for the size of it. I think I just need to practice more as have been used to shoulder rigs in the past.
Edelkrone stands by its warranty.
Amazing thank you for resolving the warranty and replacing the parts at no cost. I now am looking at buying your other products as I know you stand by your warranty. Thanks
Great and easy to use
A great versitile way to improve handheld shots
The device is brilliantly engineered and works particularly well with the manual follow focus. A great addition to any run and gun rig.
The perfect companion for my cameras
Loved using the Pocket Rig 2. What’s not to love? It’s size is perfect for travel and the different ways of using it make such a valuable part of my workflow. Edelkrone, YOU GUYS ROCK!
Compact and very sturdy!
I was happily surprised that the PocketRIG 2 can handle a caged Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k with a V-mount battery mounted on the 15mm rods in the front.
