    Ergorig can help with the shoulder and back a little. It is the first “Assist” tool i really like. Takes the weight off the shoulder, but keeps the mobility. One of the most simple and user helpful cameras tools. Has a tube and lever for near instant low mode. Very very cool rig. Looks like it would be restrictive, but i found i didn’t lose any mobility. Will most likely be my next purchase. Such great kit.

    raw test:


    10 bit low light:
    After watching these two clips, one can visualise many creative possibilities. Very impressive.

    I found this test very well done for comparing the IQ of the camera and how it handles colors and roll off.

    I've posted about this before, because I bought one:
    https://steadygum.com/

    About the same price as the Ergorig, but much lower profile, in both use and storage/transport. I can throw it in my support gear back-pack that I carry my batts and stuff in.

    It works for me and everyone that I've let use it, likes it and has said they will probably buy one(most are older than me, from just a few years to over a decade). I let a friend use it for a three or four day show that he was doing handheld on and he said it was worth every penny. And he's the type that is very skeptical on "toys".

    That's a handy test. Not surprisingly the Canon wins by a mile, but it's nice to have the reference point.

    It's clearly holding a couple of stops more in total latitude over the BM. But it's good to see other qualities too, like the rolloff into clipping - which is much smoother. And the colour channels which seem a good deal more resistant to clipping in the hyper saturated RGB LED test.

    No where near as good as the Ergorig for cinema.

    Big +1!


    That is the main reason i still spend money and time on other cameras. I just can’t get into the BM highlights. I suppose if i only shot soft light, or had tons of ambient fill available on demand, i’d consider BM, but C500 and other cinema cameras still deserve their place. The whole bang for buck mentality over hypes the BM cameras.

    That said, bang for buck where bang for buck is due.

    I would not pay $1800 for that. I bought something similar years ago for $40.

    Here's some new (walkaround) low-light footage (shot 10-bit Raw 50fps) that's a lot more to my personal taste:



    Really wish Canon would put out some more conventionally produced footage, so we can see how it looks under normal conditions. But this footage does give me more hope than the other walkaround footage I've seen to date.

    I don’t shoot “cinema” ; ) It’s designed mostly for ENG/Doc.
