Hi guys,

Recently purchased my 600D, waiting for it to come through the post ;)

Meanwhile I am searching for the best affordable grip/rig for my 600D when shooting video and not using a tripod, so such as run and gun kind of action...

I have seen Cam Caddie, Opteka grip, a pistol grip for DSLR, and also some shoulder rigs, but I am not sure what is the best and most affordable for what I am after...

I am just after something that makes the video look as smooth as possible when walking around without a tripod!!

Looking to spend no more than £60 at the moment, very small budget :( I'm only a student! £60 is about 95 USD :)

Look up X grip. There not that expensive and looks like something you can carry around anywhere.

Thanks, yeah it's pretty similar to the cam-caddie + opteka grip just cheaper :)

Any ideas if a battery grip actually helps with image stabilisation ? As it could be nice to have some grip with extra battery life too :P

A LCD Viewfinder with a monopod is about as cheap as they get;

For an actual shoulder rig, I use this;

Do you find the shoulder rig good for the price?

If you have some tools laying around and are pretty handy, you can DIY a shoulder rig. I saw a video on youtube somewhere that looked pretty solid.
