Trusmt is one of my favorite budget brands. They produce some great value for money film-making equipment, a lot of really innovative stuff, including their own newly released EVF, so the company is really worth watching, especially that prices seem to be coming down even further.
What really caught my eye is how well this thing is designed/put together. I like how the shoulder pad can be moved back and forth without affecting any other rods and that it can be tucked in just above the lovely, large quick release plate, allowing it to stay on while camera is on tripod. With my current setup, I always have to take the shoulder pad of to be able to use the camera on tripod, it just sticks out too much at the back. Trusmt setup potentially eliminates the need to take off handles and shoulder pad every time you move between hand-held and tripod. Great time-saver and time is money.
Saying that, if you just started with your DSLR filmmaking and haven’t bought anything fro it yet, buying the whole DSLR kit might actually work out quite a bit cheaper, considering that you get everything mentioned above, plus, Trusmt Follow Focus, Swing-away Matte Box, Cool Handles, Power Supply and loads of other bits which individually would cost a fortune to buy even from Trusmt, I’m not even gonna go into how much would such setup cost from likes of Zacuto or Redrock, way out of budget filmmaking bracket.
