DIY DSLR Camera Shoulder Rig

This is a DSLR Camera Shoulder Rig that I scratch built for use with my Canon 550D running magic lantern.  The main frame was constructed from aluminium blocks and rods.  The loupe was purchased cheaply from ebay, with a custom built follow focus and the shock mount for my Zoom H1N made from drain pipe & elastic bands.  I've had a chance to use it in the field and it worked really well.

nice looking rig.
looking at doing one myself.
can i ask where you got the clamps from?
an indeed the rods, found lots who can do the rods on line but not at 15mm outer diameter.

Thanks Miguel. I found it very difficult to find 15mm rods so I brought larger diameter ones and got them machined down to 15mm on a lathe. The clamps I built by hand from scratch out of a block of aluminium.
