Check out The Dougman Demo by its inventor Doug Monroe.
Needing a better tool for hand held small cameras while shooting news, documentary, and many reality television shows, Doug perfected this invention after 10 years of prototypes. Rigorous field testing and help and advice from talented and very patient engineers, tailors, artists, and camera folk has resulted in this simple but perfect tool.
Looks as if it might be a useful tool for folks using smaller video cameras for production. An interesting solution for a common production problem, especially for those of us used to the “old world” of handheld (read: “your shoulder is your tripod”) video.
