Hi,

I was wondering if someone might be able to help me please? I am shooting a short this weekend with the 5/7d and I was wondering if anyone might have a weight plate available for this kind of camera configuration. I have a PRO 2.
Please feel free to email/pm me.

Thanks in advance.

Highly recommend the weight plate/cages that Janice Arthur is making. They come in a variety of weights from 2 lbs to 15 lbs per plate. Lots of countersunk holes , iris rod mounts, comes with mounting screws etc. Well machined and fast on shipping.

Contact her through the forum search for Janice Arthur.

Best,

I use an Element Technica 19mm bridge and dovetail plate with large 19mm bars and an old RED cradle with a battery on there to power my bartech.

I'd say just about the same as Thomas, build the camera for studio mode w/ preston or bartech (rods, mattebox, motors, wireless, battery plate, battery, cross converter, transmitter, etc) and then slap that onto your rig. That should do the trick, not to mention a faster change over back to sticks/dolly.
