Handles for you HDSLR - A simple guide
Here's a guide I posted over at skateperception.com (community dedicated to skateboarding filming and photography). I recently picked up a Canon Rebel t1i to mess around with and I wanted a handle to do some low-grip, follow shots. After some hunting this is my list.
Cheap, plastic, blocking your lcd. Theres the X-grip AKA Camcaddie Opteka version --->http://opteka.com/xgrip.aspx
Cheap, simple, go with the swandle.

For 20 Bucks more and an actual cage check out the IndiSquare
You can add some rails, coldshoes and all that if you want.
For about 150-190 you can go with my personal favorite so far, the media cage cube.
This one's slick with foam handles, and two cold shoes already mounted.
If you've got some cash lying around, or you actually do this for a living you might want go for the Easom cage

Re: Handles for you HDSLR - A simple guide
There's some broken links in your post.
I like the cheap solution but not sure about how far the handle extends on the Optik version. With a full frame and 15mm it's really wide.
