After posting about the possible Double L bracket stabilizer idea, Dave Taylor over at DaveTaylorMP.com shares a few images of his Double L Bracket setup with what looks like a Canon 550D / T2i. He's using the Video Camera Light Bracket - by alzodigital.com which has two cold shoe mounts. He mentions that he also added the Trek Tech T Pod Table-Top Tactical Tripod With Magmount Star to his configuration for a simple Shooter rig with an extra handle. His inspiration for this came from TheC47.com video below. Check it out, looks pretty cool if you can't afford the RedRock Micro theEvent Rig.
I'm still looking to mount two L brackets but with an Aluminum flat bar in between to make the handles more level, and a QR adapter dead center. Maybe i'll change that center AL bar into a 'T' bar so that I can support both a QR adapter and room for the T-Pod configuration. Thanks for sharing Dave!
Update: Reader Chuckarama just sent in this Flat bracket that looks like it will do the job in between the L brackets. Should be able to mount a QR plate and still be Tripod mountable. Great job Chuckarama! Let me know how that comes out when you're done.
How do you keep the l-brackets from moving left to right?
Okay, I went ahead and ordered the Alzo brackets you have linked to. They arrived today and I threw something together quick. It actually works amazingly well. I'll build some video about it, but here are some quick pics of it at first attempt. https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157624809058008/

dave can you post a pic of just one of these attached to a t2i with battery grip?
Im thinking of buying this for the rode videomic..But I don't want it angled to far out..
Just order a 3rd, straight, bracket, for $12, while you're at it.
Then clamp your two side brackets on for even handles on either side. Put a plate on it and it'll be tripod ready too!
