    I searched, but couldn't find much mention of the Spider Brace in this
    group. Does anybody use this as a shoulder mount for smaller cameras?
    I'm using a Sony HVR-A1U, and it seems like this would be a good
    accessory for steady handheld, especially when the little machine is
    weighted down with the XLR box, heavy battery, and wide angle lens.

    (For those who haven't seen it, the product is sold here at

  2. I would go with the Figrig myself, but it depends a lot on how much of
    what kind of shooting you're talking about.

    I bought one for my loaded Canon XL2 (12 lbs!). It seems usefull if you
    don't have to move around and change angles much. I haven't used it on
    a shoot yet. Probably worth the money.

    I think you would like the Steadybrace much better. It's a solid unit.
