The lens is the Tamron 70-300mm Macro, and the wire is the trigger for the camera. It allows me to focus and then shoot.

Here is the stock with new Pistol Grip modification I did today. I found with this heavier lens and camera it wanted something stronger and better balanced. So I came up with this. It still Has the tripod or Monopod mount at the bottom of grip.

Shoulder stocks are indeed hard to find now-a-days! I thought I had lost mine awhile ago and thought, "No Problem, I`ll just do a search on-line and order me another one." Hah! I went "nutz" looking for one, that didn`t cost a lotta loot. Luckly I found my old one behind something or another in the closet. I used to follow motor boat racing and the shoulder stock came in real, realhandy with superlong telephoto lenses, and in particular, while doing panning shots. I still have my Pentax 400~600mm (F8~11)"mirror/reflex" lense. Iexposeda lot of ASA 400 filmwith that lense!I found tripods and mono-pods to bevery cumbersome, and a real pain in the arse to move around with, but the shoulder stockwas itso eezee to move around with! At first I useto use a cable release with my stock, but the cable broke and I had to just mount the lense & body comboon the stock and use the shutter button on the body.

Bottom line..., if ya use a supertelephoto lense, andmove around a lot, during a shooting outing, and can get yer mitts on a shoulder stock for a decent price, get it! I think you`ll be glad ya did.

S`later, JH :G

P.S. Hey Joel, who makes that shoulder stock that you have?

The stock is made by Hama in Germany. I got it about 5 years ago. There is a great stock made by Bushawk http://www.bushawk.com. It cost $99.00 for the stock & depending which shutter release your camera uses will depend on cost. It has loads of accessories available. That is why I choose to modify the stock i have to make it more stable. The largest lens I ever had was an Ashi Pentax 300. I wish I still had it. Your 400 must be great wide open.
