We’ve featured Dave Dugdale on TogTech before when he did the Canon 5D Mark III vs Canon T2i video comparison. He’s back with a casual review of the Manfrotto Fig Rig. The Fig Rig is a simple camera stabilization tool that works well for fast moving scenes where mobility is essential. Dave liked the rig and found stabilization was much better than simply hand holding a SLR but the price was a bit high. Check out the video for examples and more info.
If you’re like me and wondering where in the world the name Fig Rig comes from, it’s original designer was named Mike Figgis. Now you Know.
