The Newsman Kit allows you to shoulder mount your camera for quick, rugged ENG shooting. The rig can be easily balanced with a few quick adjustments and gives smaller 1/3" or ½" cameras the stability of a larger shoulder-mounted camera, which will produce smoother shots. The Zoffset shifts the shoulder pad vertically and horizontally allowing the shooter to comfortably align his eye inthe viewfinder on camera models where they are center mounted.
