Or you can get it for 50$ anytime here : http://www.mytoolstore​.com/woods/mounts.html (external link)

Or you guys could buy them from me for $55 and support someone who cares about the community instead of Big Camera Gear.

If you care about the community, why not sell them cheaper and get a deal for the guys? Any "smart person" can boost the price of something they dont make and sell it for a profit . . . Props to you for marketing, hell of a gig.

Why? I mean do as you wish but Visuals just resells this stuff with the "rigpro" sticker. And this is just me, but if i want to buy a suction cup why pay more to someone like Visual or Filmtools when the same thing can be found cheaper. Have no problem with supporting someone but not like Visual makes the thing or does anything else to it appart from reselling it.

For his excellent customer service. sometimes that alone is reason enough to pay a little more for something.

Then this thread needs a quick tittle change to "RIGPRO by Visual . . ."

I've noticed this thread is over 10,000 posts. Are they no longer starting continuation threads after 10,000 posts?

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

BlueDemon, how much does your rig weigh? I have been looking at upgrading my rig and until now, aluminum has been the only material I've considered.

Mine weighs around 23lbs. I could make it lighter using a different material as a sleeve.

I didn't mean to start an argument guys, I was just saying, helping a small business survive is better than just another dollar in Big Camera Gear's pocket IMO...but that's just my opinion.

Secondly, Big Camera Gear buys the stuff in bulk, so they can sell it cheaper, I'd be cheaper if I could, but I can't. If you don't care anything about customer service, then buy from the big guys, it's a simple as that, no fuss.

Anyway, everything is pretty ugly right now, but I had to get out and rig something. This is a quick shot of my friend's Gen Coupe that we did in 15 minutes.

Info on that one is simple, just a single 4-second shot @ f11. The light was almost completely gone, so no polarizer was used, just happened to get a good windshield out of it anyway.

Gear is Nikon D800 and the new 20mm 1.8 with my standard 20-ft boom. I wanted this one low, but because of where I had to place the cups, I needed to use the new 10" extension because I was dragging the ground with the 6".

Larger here:

Here's another couple photos from the Diode Dynamics catalog cover I helped with. I set up the rig and took the pictures themselves, but Travis edited these two images and owns the rights to them since I was a (unpaid :P ) contractor that day.

The first one ended up as the cover shot, the second one will be used inside.
