Hi All,

After downgrading to a lovely old Master Series I'm now on the look out for something to help me with low mode. I'm 6ft3 and so anything which can help shave a couple of inches off a shot would be a great help. I was spoilt with my previous rig which could do some great low mode stuff....

Any one have any gadgets they'd like to mention?

Ta!

Hi there..

Used to have a master myself back in the day.. Best advice is a long armpost, and a D-bracket..

Best of luck

Hi Ben
First you can use an 'f' bracket to put your post down to 12 " lower
You can turn the gimbal upside down and secure it with a special little screw if you have it.
Next you can modify the vest a little so as you can lower the socket block down a bit if its a front mount vest of course.
Put the camera in an extending lo mode cage, do you still have the Baer Bel cage ?
The lighter the camera package the lower you go so you could add weight to the base maybe.
You can bend your knees :D
Hope thats some help
Give me a call if you like
