I have a couple of big projects coming up which will require me to do lots of hand held work. Now the EX1, like all of the hand held beasts is a bugger to hold for a long time.
I have looked at a few different rigs, I have the DVRIG PRO. It’s a nice system, makes everything very steady but is more designed for holding it using the two bars. I also havent used it yet with the extreme.
The link below is for a new one, that looks like it does exactly what I need. It is not the most beautiful rig I have seen but they seem to have thought it through. Be interesting to try it out. I am going to order one and give it a try, hopefully in time for these big gigs. I will let you know!

If anyone else has some recommendations, please let me know. I hope the VSB1 will work with my Letus Extreme too.
Oh and on a slightly different note Steve Cahill’s rig has convinced my to purchase the Letus Zacuto rig. I have problems with my letus rods due to the risers protruding too low which interferes with my protech base plate, which i then cut but now I have matte box issues as it is too low!!
Will let you know how I find them!
