Shoulder mount or on a tripod? Usually this means settling for one or the other.
Not with the ULTRAcompact!
Under 4 pounds with handle grips and shoulder pad, the ULTRAcompact can be shoulder mounted or after removing the handles and shoulder mount, on a tripod studio-style. It has the built in miniMOUNT, a "C" bracket with handle that allows for accessories to be mounted vertically or horizontally. The miniMOUNT has enough clearance for a DSLR with battery pack or to mount a sound link device underneath. The camera is mounted to the ULTRAcompact with a quick release mount, allowing for minute horizontal adjustments as you change lenses.
The entire unit folds onto itself, making a 12" x 16" x 16" cube. It weighs under 8 pounds with a standard DSLR and lens.
Compact, lightweight, durable, for under $300.
The ULTRAcompact requires that you settle... for more!
