Easyrig logotype

Easyrig 2.5 gives you the advantages of both a handheld camera and tripod mounted camera; i.e. with the speed and mobility of the handheld camera you can still achieve steady pictures.

Your back and shoulders are relieved since the load is redistributed to the hips – Easyrig 2.5 helps you to concentrate on the actual filming. You won’t suffer from a strained back or shoulders as you would from normal handheld shooting and you will be able to work for longer periods of time.

The breathable fabric and ventilated soft padding will make your filming with Easyrig 2.5 comfortable and enjoyable.

Easyrig 2.5 is designed and manufactured in Sweden and has been ergonomically tested with optimal results.

After you are finished with your Easyrig 2.5, just fold it and put it in the specially designed Petrol bag that your Easyrig is delivered in.

Easyrig 2.5 will be your best tool when you do sport events, documentaries or news - yes, any occasion where handheld camera is required.
