Funky, dirtcheap 'magic rig'

I've seen this device before and am intrigued by the design. It actually looks great and I am really curious how this contraption feels and works in real life. For the price, I am tempted to buy it but I shouldn't. I have too much crap as it is. On the other hand, whatever I don't use I can usually sell without too much of a loss.This design is truly a 'spider', despite all the other devices that have been given that name. I like how it folds up, transforms into a low-angle shooter, cage, shoulder rig and everything inbetween. Of course it is not going to hold a follow focus and I'm not sure how much weight it can handle before involuntarily 'folding all by itself'. But at 73 dollars shipped... that's a steal- even if it's half as good as it looks! (for that price you can even melt it and sell it with profit to the scrap-metal dealer ;-)


  1. Ik heb dat ding besteld. Ik laat weten wat ik er van vind zodra ik hem hier heb.
    I ordered this thing. I will let you know what it is like, once I have it here.

  2. Cool, Roel. I'd really like to get my hands on this little baby!
