I’ve worked with a number of DSLR rigs, but the one I’ve found that fits me the best is the CPM DSLR Shoulder Shooter Rig. The layout and design are quit a change of pace when compared to many of the other options on the market.

The rails and brackets are very light weight with plenty of great mounting options. I’ve since made a few changes to the configuration in this video. Mainly switching back to the configuration I complained about in this review(what can I say, it grew on me). Every month CPM seems to release new configurations and I am very interested in there New DSLR Cage “Cubed 3.0“.

I really like the idea of having a bracket system that completely surrounds the camera. Not only does this protect your camera, but it also gives you a lot more options for handling and mounting. Lets face it, with DSLR cameras in there current state you need at least a small mixer and a mic. Not to mention adding a field monitor to the mix.

There are a lot of options on the market right now. So when you are out shopping for a rig to mount your camera, swing by the CPM FILM TOOLS website and see what they’ve got.
