BMD ARMOR has three operating modes: hand-hold, shoulder and live. The operating mode specialized for evening parties has broken the traditional idea that BMPC cannot make live cast.

The shouldering applies seamless integration technologies and you can adjust the balance weight as your wish. You will feel the shoulder shooting quite balanced, light and handy.
BMPC is an excellent product, but it needs a lot of external equipments to attain a smooth operation, which causes headaches for the purists of art, and hence the need for an equipment that facilitates the BMPC's excellence has became urgent. Such equipment should be compatible for hand-hold, shoulder, and live cast so the BMPC's advantage can be maximized.
