First DSLR rig to buy

With so many rigs available out there in the market today, many will be wondering which item to buy first (if you're rich just grab all ). Well assuming you already have your tripod and video head the list of items to obtain from top to bottom :

1) Flycam, minicam
2) Follow focus
3) Shoulder rig
4) Rails, dolly etc

The list above are based on my own shooting pattern / subject and therefore might not be applicable to everyone. Just sharing and you can do your own research before starting off on your way

I find the Skyler Minicam easier to use and less bulky.

Well, I don't see why it can't... YouTube it and i'm sure you'll see a lot of people flying with the flycam5000 + 60D...

But I'd personally use the Glidecam, it gives you more finetuning options for balancing your camera

I own FLycam 5000 on my black magic 4k camera.I purchased it from website named FlycamDSLR. Its pretty cool in price and performance. Flawless stability and smooth holding....I enjoyed shooting videos with Flycam 5000...Glidecam is quite expensive and Flycam 5000 is quite reasonable and affordable. I love it.....
