Holy crap, that Zacuto rig costs more than any camera + lens combination you could stuff on it!
In any case, nice rig you got there, but it does look rather front-heavy, do you plan on adding any weights to go over your shoulder?
Also is this thread only for dSLRs? If so, then I haven't got much to show off, unfortunately...

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

Nice catch! Yeah it is front heavy, the guy that sells the rig sells an adapter for the back with weight. I am probably going to pick that up to offset the weight.

Go for it. The point of a shoulder-mount is to take the weight off your hands and let you use your shoulder to carry the camera and let your hands do the controlling, without that it's only slightly better than just hand-holding. You have a follow focus on there, but as soon as you lift up your left hand, thing is gonna droop to the side... oh, and you should never use the FF as the grip, supporting the camera with your left hand on the focus works in photography, but not in video.

Exactly and that is why most professional shoulder mounted camcorders have a shoulder pad that is adjustable fore and aft allowing the operator to achieve a perfect balance regardless of the weight of power (rear) or a lens.

If setup properly one could literally hold an 18 pound balanced camcorder on their shoulder with their fingertips.

In the real world the method is to hold the camera by it’s grip with the right hand which also controls the zoom leaving the left hand to control the iris and focus.

Nice rig dude, yeah I am in the process of setting up my rig different so I can add a counter weight to the back and even things out. Luckily the rig is completely customizable as all pieces are removable and the 15mm tubes can screw into each other. I will post up-to-date pics as soon as I find something to counter-weight the back.

You might consider (as the budget allows) hanging an Anton-Bauer QR-DSLR off the back of that rig, it would serve nicely as a counterweight and with the proper battery provide you with enough power to shoot all day and still have enough left over to a monitor and an mixer.

Man, beefy AB you got on the back there, I really need to get something bigger than my D90, but a mixer comes first.

Anyways, here's my 370 without the Zylight, or much of anything at the moment. I keep the tandem on for better balance in the back, and I usually end up plugging in on location anyway, so...

Mic is an NTG-1 on the light arm for better positioning (unscrewed the stock mic holder), I don't often use the Zylight on-camera, so I once I get a second battery, the D90 gets lighting duty.
Once I get over to B&H, I'll be getting a Sound Devices 302, a hyper, and boompole with the usual suspects. Sound city here I come. :lol:

I wanted to mention this earlier but hanging a pro battery off the back would probably come to use once the OP decides to expand with a monitor or mixer, whenever that is, so it depends on how much kitchen sinks one intends to bolt on there.

You're hiring an operator for that, too, right? Cuz good luck booming while filming while mixing.

Of course! I already have someone in mind, and I'll see if I could fit a recorder into my budget as well, so that we could record audio seperately, if needed. If I go solo, the mic and mixer will help out a ton indoors as I only have a bare shotgun right now.
