What the experts say

You throw a camera on your Ergorig and the first thing you think is, ‘Where did the weight go?’ The ergorig is comfortable, adjustable, and doesn’t restrict movement.
Andrew Mitchell, SOC

What’s amazing to me is how the camera sits level on the shoulder. There’s no tendency for the camera to slide down or any need to tighten muscles to compensate for the slope of your own shoulder. With the Ergorig, the weight of the camera is distributed to the body making long handheld takes much more comfortable.

The Ergorig is a great relief from your normal aches of handheld camera operating. It allows you to work in the way you are used to while preventing back pain.
frequently asked questions
What size should I get?
Measure from your front hip point to the top middle of your shoulder. If you're less than 20" order a small. Your front hip point is the part that feels like the tip of the triangle in your hip on the front side that is right around your belt line.
Does it work well for female operators?
Works great! Most women prefer to adjust the midriff strap either above or below their chest line, and some prefer it to sit straight across.
