Has anyone found good way to mount the Shogun low on the sled either directly on and perpendicular to the center post, or off the monitor rods?   It just gets cumbersome up top by camera and everything I usually have going on up there with cables, motors and what not.

Well he has that intersex plate, but I'm trying to find something rod mounted or post mounted that will get it closer to my Ultra Bright main monitor....  Something similar to this http://www.amazon.co...2/dp/B0043UO234

Just not sure that Midland mount is strong enough...

Yes, smallrig does have a 15mm offset 1/4 20 that might do it.  Would still really love a post mount of some sort though...  Will see if anyone else has a secret.  Thanks Victor!

Take a look at berkeysystem.com, their rod blocks can mount to the intersex plate. I can post a photo tomorrow.

Ultra 2 monitor rods are not the same spacing as normal 15mm lightweight rods.  not sure if they are even 15mm

 

Tiffen makes weight mounts that you could try and they also have a return monitor mount that is made to work on the monitor rods.

I'll check that out Alan. I know small rig has a rod offset 1/4 inch clamp, but it's 15 mm and those monitor rods are a little bigger...

You're right Alfeo, the spacing is different and Tiffen does have a block that will fit, but that's too expensive for me just for the shogun.

No, they are not 16mm. Tiffen makes a simple and inexpensive mounting system that goes on the rods. Call them!

Any luck on Frankensteining a solution? And I can confirm that the Clipper monitor rods are 16mm and I think the spacing just might be a bit over 100mm.

At this I'm banging my head against the wall to figure this out as I want to attach a Shogun Flame to my Clipper24 rig.
