Added stability

  • Excerpt: I don't use a monopod that much but this seemed like it might add some stability. Appears to be well constructed, consistent with other Manfrotto products.

Great For The Price

  • Excerpt: Rather than use this with a monopod, I use it to brace the C100 against my body when shooting handheld. Since you can't lock any of it's moving points, it can be a little funny to get into position as you like, but it's flexibility can also be nice while actively operating, allowing you to pan or raise the shot. Feels sort of cheap, so I don't know how long it will last, but I could go through 15 of them and still have spent less than on Zacuto's Target Shooter.
  • Pros: Cheap, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Feels Cheap

Not a bad piece of equipment

  • Excerpt: I bought this shoulder brace to use with a DSLR camera rig I was peicing together. I had the rails and handle system and figured this would be the perfect solution to brace the rig against my body. Overall it works like a charm. However, what I was not expecting is its ability to swivel/rotate side to side. It's smooth, very smooth, but that isn't always a good thing when you're trying to keep steady during a shot.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Good Stability, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Plastic

  • Excerpt: It is lightweight and do the job. Unfortunately the two little support are weak and break easy. For that I create a small metal support and it work even better. An excellent piece of equipment. I used in my hiking trips with a monopod for support or in a rifle style for video.
  • Pros: Folds Small, Lightweight, Unfolds Quickly
  • Cons: Weak Construction

Surprised

  • Excerpt: Went looking for shoulder style support when recording video with my Canon DSLR. Was surprised when talking with rep about this brace teaming it with my Manfrotto 681 monopod and the Manfotto 080 belt pouch since it was a fraction of the price. Gave it a try and worked very well for me for video shoots. Don't know well it would work for photo shoots since your keeping the camera away from your body.

Probably worth having.

  • Excerpt: This sure seems like a good idea. In actual use, I find it helps the most when the monopod is straight up & down, but if you know what you're doing, you don't hold the monopod that way. Still, even when the monopod is on an angle, either out front or between your feet, I THINK this dingus helps a little. Not much, but then it doesn't cost a lot, and is very lightweight, so why not have it? As others have noted, it's ridiculously long.

  • Excerpt: At last, Manfrotto has provided a replacement for my Gitzo Studex monopod whose integrated shoulder support broke at its plastic joint. I like the added stability provided for tele-photography of moving subjects.
