WARNING: NEVER POINT THE TIP OF THE SPRING POD AT YOUR FACE. ONLY LOOSEN
THE CLAMPS WHEN THE SPRING POD IS ATTACHED TO THE LOADED DV MEDIA RIG. THE
SPRING POD CAN POP OUT QUICKLY AND CAUSE INJURY IF THESE RULES ARE NOT
FOLLOWED.
1) Connect the handles to the shoulder arch by
sliding the smaller end of the handle
assembly through the stainless steel cylinder.
Secure the two sections together by inserting
the tilt lever (6) through the stainless steel
cylinder and threading it into the handle
section. The tilt lever adjusts the tension on
the tilt action of the handles. The position of
the lever can be adjusted without loosening –
simply grab the lever and press on the red
button, then adjust the angle of the lever.

2) The swiveling counterweight can be adjusted to the left or right to
compensate for balance issues created by the camera and other
mounted accessories. For now, tighten the pivot knob thoroughly
so it doesn’t move while you are mounting the camera and
accessories and making adjustments to the Rig.
3) Attach the quick-release plate to your camera using the appropriate screw. Remove the
unused screw and store in a secure location. Once the quick-release plate is firmly attached to
your camera, set it aside.
4) Attach the belt to your waist with the holster facing front. Take the spring pod and insert the
flat end into the holster, making sure to run the pod through the D-ring at the top of the holster.
Do not loosen the spring pod clamps yet.
5) Make sure the tilt lever on the DV Media Rig is tightened so the
handles don’t rotate easily and the unit can stand securely. Take
the camera with quick-release plate attached and secure it to the
base plate on the DV Media Rig. Pick up the Rig and place it over
your shoulder. The front of the Rig must be attached to the spring
pod. Insert the brass tip of the spring pod into the coiled spring on
the underside of the handle assembly. Once the spring pod is
secured, loosen the spring pod clamps.
6) If you plan to attach any accessories such as a light, mic, XLR mic adapter, etc., go ahead and
attach them to the accessory mount and fix it to the Rig.
7) With the Rig fully mounted and loaded, you’ll know if any position and balancing adjustments
need to be made. You can adjust the side-to-side balance of the camera by loosening the
single-wing knob above the spring pod attachment point and sliding the camera platform. You
can also adjust the side-to-side balance by pivoting the counterweight at the rear.
8) The primary positional adjustment is at the shoulder pivot. This
will allow you to change the angle and height of the shoulder arch
for maximum comfort.
The tilt lever allows you to change the amount of tension in the
tilting mechanism or soft-lock the tilt position. Never operate the
Rig with the tilt lever excessively loose.
Depending on the weight of your camera, you may want to lock one of the sections of the
spring pod to minimize the spring action. You can also extend and lock both sections for
elevated shots.
The DV Media Rig is covered by a 2-year parts & labor warranty against defects.
