    Hi all,

    I have had a gh3 for 4 months now, and have only shot handheld. We are living 100% on a sailboat, and I have some projects perculating I my head that will require steadier video. I would like to find a rig that is as small as possible, as we have limited storeage space on the boat, and for packability once onshore. So what rigs are people using? Something that could be used with a focus control would be nice, as I have both m43 and nikon lenses.

    Looks like a pretty close copy. From reviews it looks like it suffers from most of the normal annoyances that come with knockoff or brandless rigs - but it comes with the territory when you're paying a fraction of the price of brand-name stuff.

    FWIW, when I do buy one it will be the original. Yes, it's more, but I want to solicit the innovators, not the copycats. The innovators deserve something for their cleverness, and paying them increases the chances that they'll continue to be clever and introduce more innovative products.

    It's a karma thing.
