Default Camera Handle With Shutter Release Trigger

Looking for a camera "L" shape handle with a (gun style) trigger shutter release. Use to have one with my ole C330 camera, worked out very handy. Hold the camera with one hand and control the shutter while your other hand was free to make camera setting adjustments. Looked for one but no luck, then again Google and me don't seem to get along well.

Perhaps a Flash Bracket used in combination with a short remote release would do the trick.

That what it was, a "L" shape flash bracket with a pistol grip that also had a pistol style trigger. Loved using it when (in the old days) weddings, it was a great time saver and made my job a lot easier.

Looked something like this but in a "L" shape.

There are lots of "L" shaped Flash Brackets, some even with "pistol grip" type handles, but I can't find any with a built-in shutter release.

The only one I could find that does anything like you say you want, uses your thumb instead of your index finger, to trigger the shutter. See http://rpsstudiolighting.com/index.p...roducts_id=809

That's not a bad find, very close to what I was trying to build.

Thanks,
Craig

I think the word you're looking for is "Overkill", but I like how you can change the orientation of the camera while it's in the bracket. (Did you see the video?)
