    I have a sony trv900 that I want to mount a shotgun mic (this needs to be
    raised to prevent it from entering the frame) and a 100W video light at the
    same time. I also want to put the camcorder on a shoulder brace.

    Is there one unit that does all that?

  2. Take a look at the Fig Rig. I had a friend who's handy at welding
    make me one lots cheaper, and I think they both work well. You can hang
    all manner of stuff on a figrig if you're using one of the smaller new
    cameras. Not the shoulder-mounts, but the smaller ones.

    It may be very useful, but I don't like the looks.

    While searching around, I chanced up this site. They have more camcorder
    braces than I have ever seen:

    This just complicates the buying (or DIY) decision.

    Have a look at www.dvmultirig.com

    The MultiRig is super versatile and you can mount acc. on any end of
    each grip.
