How to Use a Mini Shoulder Brace or Half-Rig to Create Stable Handheld Video

Read Time:1 minLanguages:

Mini rig, micro rig, shoulder brace: there are a few names for this simple contraption. Essentially a rod and shoulder pad, the adjustable shoulder brace is one of the easiest ways to take handheld video easier and more comfortable without adding a lot of bulk or expense.

With a small, lightweight brace, you can set up to shoot faster and go to places where bulky equipment like tripods, large shoulder rigs, and finicky stabilizers can't go. In this lesson from the course Video Production on the Go, with Slavik Boyechko, you'll learn how to use a simple and inexpensive shoulder rig to make smooth shots.
