Cheap rig for those who are interested

I think the actual rig starts at $115 but still very good value for money IMO.

You have misread the very poorly written rewards listings. It is NOT a cheap rig.

The $115 donation level only gets you the sticker, dog tags, poster and the metal stand pictured here:



You don't even get the t-shirt. (He says you get the stand plus rewards 1, 2 and 3. Note there are 5 rewards listed before the stand, meaning you do not get the hat or t-shirt.)

You don't get the actual rig unless you pledge the $1,000 level... (and he goes on to claim the rig is a $1500 retail value.) making this silly franken-rig one of the most expensive hunks of DSLR-marketed aluminum out there. Not counting Zacuto, of course.  :o

This guy's going to have trouble completing his campaign... he should have gone with IndieGoGo.

And he needs to hire a PR person to handle his public interaction.

edit - Just watched his promo video, and this guyl can't even handle stereo audio... Good luck, dude!

I think there are a lot of reasons why the Spektor Systems rig did not get funded. But if your looking for a cheap shoulder rig, I actually found one. For $69 on Kickstarter, and that includes free shipping.
