Shoulder Rig Readers Projects

Michael Hawkey just sent me some pics of his shoulder rig and it's beautiful!

Hi Suso,
I used a heavy guitar string and heatshrink. Functionally smooth, but the Sony lens has a fairly stiff lens movement. I also have a vintage lens that is much softer, but has a notched focus band, so I’ll need to make something to fit over that so the cable turns it freely. Both solvable problems, just have not got around to it yet.

Pictures attached minus the counterweight which I was still experimenting with.
