  1. Best experience
    review by Bot

    While buying this rig I was not sure about the quality, the reason being its very affordable price. But now after using it for 2 months, I am quite happy. Good quality material with limitless mounting options, comfortable shoulder support pad, build with good quality material and durability are the things that I was not expecting and was able to believe only after using it. Can’t beat the price to quality ratio here.

  2. So easy to make use of!
    review by Johnny

    All in all, it is really a good product. I used it for shooting a short fiction film. There were some gentle camera movements in my shoot and with this filmcity shoulder rig my camera was no more sensitive to those movements. The cage brackets provide a solid support to my camera. It was easy to assemble; Knobs work well and tighten fine. Build with the good quality material I must say this product is value for money.

  3. Filmcity has really surprised me with how good the quality is for the price!
    review by Sophie

    Filmcity has really surprised me with how good the quality is for the price. It is a highly customizable kit with adjustable cage brackets that perfectly fits my both Panasonic and Fujifilm X70 cameras with both zooming and fixed focus ring lenses. The matte box with two filter holders provides me the option to add more colours to my video making. I took it for a test for a handheld shot and I can say it is sturdy as I wanted it to be. Ball leveler on the plate, cable clamps and Z bracket are another valuable provisions which make it a must buy product.

  4. Great product for everyone
    review by Jane

    We bought this as a throw away rig not expecting anything great about it, well I was wrong. Guys I buy a lot of gear and we are in the field daily. I teach production and consult production. Our requirements are to say the least stringent and we don't put up with bad gear. This was a surprise to me to see how well this was engineered I was floored with the quality of the matte box although a bit stiff for the swing away and filter trays. I will never pump up a review. I love helping people make the right choices. This is a great product for anyone.

  5. The product is great
    review by Richardson

    The handles feel good to hold, the shoulder pad is comfortable, the mounting base moves freely up and down the rods, the C clamp is built solid and has additional pre drilled 1/4” threads for additional mounting. Everything on this rig relating to structural integrity is high quality aluminum and machined beautifully. I mount rig to tripod head but I just can't slide it back far enough to where it securely locks. I'm 6'3 and I've been told I have longer than normal arm length so if you're like me you might found this rig to be pushing a little on the short side / cramp but a purchase of a 15mm rod and threads will have you roomy again in no time. I'm using the rig with a Nikon D810 and various lenses that go from 12mm to 300mm and the rig was a little tip happy so now everything feels much better balanced.
