OSCT bracket [EXCLUSIVE] Pre-order now and save!

I am very happy to announce that I am ready to take pre-orders for the OSCT!

What is it? It is a L shapped bracket that you insert between the camera and the camera plate. You can then attach a cable trigger to the camera to press the SET button to start/stop video recording. This is mostly useful when working with shoulder rigs. Here is a video to explain the whole thing.

Why do you need this?

If you dont own a shoulder rig you dont really need this. On the other hand, if you do own a rig, this is the most useful piece of gear ever! As I say in the video above, it:

  • Saves time when editing/reviewing clips since the first frame of the video is perfectly framed
  • Allow you to start/stop video much faster. Resulting in shorter clips => increase CF card capacity
  • Allow you to react faster when something is happening and needs to be shot. No fumbling with the camera, just press the trigger and voila!

Seriously, this is the kind of thing you dont know you were missing until you see it! And I am not saying this because I am trying to sell them, it is true!

How much?

35$+shipping

This is the first batch of the product. As such, I am selling it a a minimum price. In exchange, I am not painting/coating the bracket. Next version will probably sell for around 50-60$ but will be black and better looking. Well, if I manage to sell the initial batch first!

35$ for a piece of metal? Are you crazy?

Nope! I talked about the cost of creating new pieces of gear in a previous post. This thing is way more complicated to build than what you think. My initial prototypes used thin folded metal plate and lets just say that it was not a success. While the OSCT is not indestructible, it is solid. Very solid.

Also, 35$ if pretty cheap when you take into account the amount of time it takes to build these little thing. I know because I did 7 versions before my final prototype!

When?

As soon as I get enough pre-orders, I will start production and should get the products within a week.

How?

If you are interested, please contact me at: boss @ canon5dtips .com and I will give you instructions. I will have to work this way until I have an order form up.

Edit: there was a bug that screwed up the display of the video. Now it is fixed. Thanks Michel for the notice!

    No problem boss, nice idea by the way :) (even if that will not be the solution I’ll use for many reasons)

    When I get my 5D, I will get this :)

  • Michael,Carey

    I tried e-mailing you and it would not go thru. I would like to order one of these. When do you think you are going to be shipping?
    Thanks

    I am buying a 60D, will this work for that and if not are you planning on making one for the 60D? Great idea by the way!

      I will have to check measurements. Can you start-stop recording using the SET button on the 60D?
