    Default Eazy Handles

    If you film with a DSLR and are looking into getting a handle here's a little video the berrics posted about the eazy handles.

    Huh, I was just looking that website up after going on the Berrics (and the videos didn't work). Seems cool, pretty expensive though.

    The eazy handle is outrageously priced imo.

    I'm considering picking up a handle. This one is nice, but like everyone else is saying, they're definitely over priced for sure. Seems like it would only be worth it if you do a lot of skate filming. Since I have a lightweight Sony Nex, I think this should be good enough considering the camera doesn't weigh a lot. http://www.amazon.com/Opteka-Profess...+Handle-+Black

    Go with something made of steel, I've heard that handle is really flimsy since it's made of plastic. You get a lot of shaking filming with that thing.

    The EZ handle is so legit, i had one when i had my t2i and it was so damn solid and perfectly balanced. Worth every penny, and buy it used if you can. I paid 300 for mine used, sold it for 250 months later when i got rid of my dslr and the V1 goes for even cheaper now. Opteka is garbage, support jason and his family

    True, but my camera is lightweight compared to the dslr's out. So that would limit the shaking slightly. I'm not going to be filming enough to get my moneys worth out of the eazy handle.

    Although I'd like to help support someone that is selling a solid product, I'm also trying to support myself and dishing out $250 on a handle is a no go in my books at this time. 20$ to test out the opteka would be good enough for me. Besides, even if I decide I don't like it, it won't put much of a dent in my pocket.

    I just made a handle out of aluminum, some washers, a little nut with a knob and a bike handle. It's purty.



    Really old picture.

    ^^ It almost looks like you used a tennis racket, lol. Nice though. Good money saver.

    Was looking over the other Opteka handles. Think I might end up getting this one. Little more sturdy from reviews then the previous one.

    Alright, well weather is starting to warm up. Good thing I didn't buy the one I posted above. Plan on ordering this soon. Lot more sturdy without breaking the bank. http://www.amazon.com/Opteka-X-GRIP-...GRIP+EX+MK+III


    Gonna have to figure **** out though when it comes down to actual filming. With the lack of friends skating now, might not get a chance to use it that much. I have a feeling I'll be doing a lot of self filming using a tripod for now.
