Recently Hondo Garage started shipping the Pop & Lock portable rig which I backed on Kickstarter and really like. Since then, they have come out with several minimal mobile rigs for DSLR and mirrorless cameras that I thought you guys might dig.
This rig gives you a full shoulder rig, but you can quickly switch to a small top handle rig and pack it easily. Balancing is also lighting fast on this rig. The Really Comfortable Rig uses an arca swiss quick release system making for a solid camera connection.
The Back Country Rig is designed for shooters who don’t have the luxury of traveling with a ton of gear. This rig is stripped down and built for maximum efficiency. Like the RCR above, the Backcountry Rig sports an area swiss quick release plate.
This little sucker is great. I have a Pop & Lock and love using it. I really like how you can turn this rig into anything like a second handle, shoulder rig or just a flexibly top handle rig. Good stuff!
What do you guys think of this style of rig?
