Learn how to Dougmon

Weighing in at 28.5 ounces, the dougmon comfortably supports cameras up to 5.5 pounds. The Dougmon's functional design allows cameras to go wherever your hand and arm can go, unlike shoulder rigs that limit you to the axis of your upper torso.

This flexible design works on an adjustable friction ball head system centered in the palm of your hand. It is supported by an adjustable length metal arm that wraps securely over your arm providing a very steady handheld camera platform. No more arm fatigue.  No big rig on your shoulder.  Easy in, easy out of the system.  The Dougmon supports your wrist and arm creating steady shots that can be high, low and in between. The Slingmon helps with DSLR shooting using the Dougmon.

The Dougmon was design by 30 year veteran cameraman Doug Monroe. Needing a better tool for hand held small cameras while shooting news, documentary, and many reality television shows, Doug perfected this invention after 10 years of prototypes. Rigorous field testing and help and advice from talented and very patient engineers, tailors, artists, and camera folk has resulted in this simple but perfect tool.
