The Rhino Rig appeared on Kickstarter recently and though already receiving full funding, is still quite a feat of engineering. The company is claiming that it is the first completely modular, fully adjustable camera rig. And to be honest, we’re positive that it really is given how many configurations they have set up on their website. I don’t even want to imagine all the sleepless nights that the design team put into it.
For starters, it is a shoulder rig–but, well, it’s actually more than that. It’s made up of four pieces: the Base Kit, the Rail System, the Cage, and the Rhino Rest. The rest looks especially comfortable because of the way that it conforms to your shoulder. It’s designed to fit every type of camera you can think of–which is nice for people who actually shoot for a living.
They’re not exactly stating what it’s built out of, but the rail system is made of carbon fiber. Their Kickstarter video is after the jump.
