Classy DSLR Wooden Shoulder Rig Built From a Single Branch

Although film and TV markets are being shaken up by the low cost and high quality of DSLR cameras, many of the accessories still leave a bit to be desired. Cinema 5D reader Jonathan Clifford Berqvist worked with his father Erik to build a custom wooden shoulder rig from a single piece of wood. (Check out the video after the break.) The ingenious, handle-controlled follow focus allows the user to adjust the focus with a simple twist, a huge improvement over current clunky implementations. Sure, the wooden body may not be as customizable as the other Erector Set-esque shoulder mounts on the market, but it'll sure make you look classy when you're filming your next online-only music video interview series.
