Camtree shoulder rig review

Recommended Posts

Hi all, long time lurker first time poster I guess.
 
I made a review video for a shoulder rig kit I bought a little while ago, then realised I didn't really have anywhere to share it (again, habitual lurker) and here we are  :)
 

 
Kinda the reason I decided to do this review is that I tend to be pretty nervous buying gear from brands and companies I've never really heard of and can't find any reviews for online.  I imagine I'm not alone in this feeling, and I've lurked as you all lust and argue over higher end rigs like Redrocks, Tiltas, Lanpartes etc, kinda wishing I had the money to afford one.  I thought some of the lesser known brands (Proaim, Camtree, other weird ones you find on ebay) had some nice looking rigs that were in my price range if I saved but I couldn't find any reviews and I really hate wasting money.
 
In this case I ended up biting the bullet on this kit, a Camtree Hunt III Filmmaking Kit (yeah, it is probably is a copy of a similar Tilta rig) and I've been really happy with it.  Camtree have actually added an audio splitter to the kit since I bought it for the same price, so it's even better now I guess.  You do get a lot of bits for what you pay for (matte box with flags, follow focus, very nice handles, rods, a battery mount & cables, etc) and the quality is quite good, but I've waffled enough.  Have a watch and let me know what you think, and if you have any questions feel free to ask (I've added a massive amount of little comments to the Youtube description too), I don't want to seem like I've just randomly shown up to be shill or anything  ^_^
 
Here's a link to the site I bought it from if you want to have a looksie:

Cheers, Brad

      Selling a excellent condition 5D Mark III with Canon 50mm f1.8, battery grip with hand strap, 5 batteries, AC wall adapter, 3 CF cards, and 2 chargers. The 5D has Magic Lantern preinstalled for RAW shooting and upgraded operating system. I can also remove the Magic Lantern if need be. The camera is only 2 years old, has been mainly used in a studio setting shooting only video, and taken extremely great care of. It has less than 6,000 shutter count and is in like new condition. The Canon 50mm 1.8 is the hard to find older model with the better focus ring. The lens is in excellent condition, with no scratches, fungus, or oil on aperture blades. Set comes with 3 CF cards, a 64gig, and two 32gig cards.  $2000 OBO

      For sale is a slightly used Canon SL2. I'm a reviewer on YouTube and bought this camera for a review. So if you buy this, you're getting a very lightly used camera. 

      The SL2 has all the modern features from Canon. Dual Pixel AF and Digic 7 processor. I love the small size of this camera. 

      If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask. 

      Thanks!
