I see this rig for sale all the time on ebay. When they first started popping up the price tag was somewhere in the $300 range, but over the last 8 months the price has dropped to something a little more reasonable. Now you can for just under $100.

The rig is usually called something generic like “” or “” but they all look about the same. There are a number of good features about this rig for the price.

On the plus side:

  1. Mounting wholes all over the place.
  2. Extendable arm that can be used as a shoulder support.
  3. 1/4 20 holes at the top of each handle.
  4. Folds up into a small easy to travel with package.
  5. Price

On the negative side:

  1. No support for 15mm rails.
  2. Follow focus could be very hard to mount.
  3. Mounting maybe to small for some QR plates.

Really for the price, I think this could be a very handy travel rig. It folds up so small that I could see many people over looking its faults for the convenience of form factor. If you’re still on the fence, here’s a video of a girl awkwardly smiling well demonstrating the features of this rig.

After Looking this little guy over I may have to order one to add to my collection. .

UPDATE: I just bought one, full review coming soon.
