With a shoulder mount, your camera is always at eye level. This is useful if you want to operate the camera quickly, or want to see if your subject's in proper focus. The Sevenoak SK-R6 can be loaded up to 10 kilos and so can be used with large and heavy cameras. Use the 2 legs on the base plate of the mount to attach accessories. You mount the camera on the base plate with a 1/4"or 3/8" screw.
