There are many options out there when it comes to DSLR rigs. But they are either large and expensive, or small, cheap, have few features. The Edelkrone Pocket Rig looks like it has the the best of both worlds.
So the Edelkrone Pocket Rig is just about the size of a battery grip, but it also houses a shoulder stock and 15mm rods to mount a follow focus. This makes it compact and portable.
You can find the Edelkrone Pocket Rig at their website for $299.

There are videographers who like the compact size of DSLRs, and who don’t want to lose this advantage by using a large rig.
Then there are people who want to shoot great personal videos (like birthdays, kids playing in the park, friends hanging out, holidays, etc.) on a real camera with DOF (not an iPhone!), while being casual and discreet about it.
Finally, there are photographers who want a super small, lightweight video stabilization solution, so that they can shoot photos and video simultaneously.
The Pocket Rig is designed to meet the expectations of all these users.
When it’s mounted to the base of your DSLR, it looks no bigger than a battery grip. But when it’s expanded, it transforms into a fully-functional shoulder stabilizer.
The Pocket Rig is so small that you will forget that you have it attached, yet it will serve you instantly, anywhere you have your DSLR. We sized it to fit – and look good – even with a compact DSLR like the Canon 550D.
It is 100% machined aluminum and stainless steel, yet it weighs less than many professional lenses (just 1.25 lb.).
Need more than a shoulder stabilizer? No problem! This rig has a pair of industry standard 15mm rods folded inside. Within seconds, they can be mounted and ready to accept follow focus, matte box and handle attachments.
