I recently purchased a DSLR rig and have been getting asked by many of my film maker friends to give my opinion since many of them are also on the hunt for a good rig.

As you may have seen on Videomaker.com, we recently got our hands on the Pocket Rig by Edelkrone. At Videomaker, we're strong believers that if you're shooting on a DSLR, support is essential. Since the bodies are so small, these are cameras where the center of gravity is often in the lens. Combine that with the fact that the grip is vertical rather than horizontal, and you have yourself a recipe for wobbly video if you choose to shoot hand-held. We put the Pocket Rig on a Canon 5D Mark III and took it for a spin.

However, taking a good quality photo/video using these devices requires use of accessories that may prove to be too cumbersome. The Manfrotto Sympla facilitates in taking a perfect shot by allowing a range of components to be connected to the camera, giving better control and ease of handling.
