It doesn’t matter whether this rig is knock-off or not. For me it’s in my budget that matters a lot, this is the only rig that comes across my all necessities; it’s like a small investment that fulfills all my film making requirements. I think it’s not only me who faces price frustration but every budget film maker is facing.
Recently, I bought Filmcity rig FC-10 and this rig is really well-built not made of plastic but it is of hard-wearing plastic. Everything is same quality, functionality as other brand offers, the only difference is price. Filmcity FC-10 satisfied my demands. Really they have improved their quality.
This rig is perfect for DSLR camera. The handles of the rig are secure and comfortable, provides good grip and shoulder pad is also quite comfortable. Only few parts are of durable plastic rest are of aluminum, rubber etc. which can securely carry your camera setup. At very low price they also added free Matte Box, really a great addition or saving for me. This rig makes my every shoot stable and accurate. The main thing which I liked most about these guys is that they really care about their customers.
