first contact (prototype): Apr. 2011 - Nevada Desert
final product review: Feb. 2012 - Transsylvania (Romania)
This rig is the best you can get for DSLR Cinematography.
Nothing else on the market compares to it in matters of reliability, sturdiness and "real camera" feel. It adjusts to match your exact body shape in a way no other DSLR rig does. It is definetly worth the price.
