Mounting Transvideo on Clippers standard yoke
Posted 02 December 2010 - 03:29 PM
At the moment I'm using the standard 7" monitor that ships with the sled. And I would like to maintain the mounting of the monitor with standard yoke 45º slant back
See this link: http://www.tiffen.co...num=800-7500-03
I think I have seen an orange bracket somewhere, that goes between the monitor and the Clippers yoke? Think it was Chris Fawsetts?
But I can't find any info on the Transvideo site.

That would be me. You need a set of these: http://steadivision..../Archer_Kit.jpg
Contact Transvideo and ask for a set of centre-of-gravity brackets for Steadicam Archer/ Clipper. Ref the link too. when mounting, make sure the screws you use are not too long, or you'll damage the casing.
You're going to love that monitor.
All the best,

Now I just need to order the monitor.
I'm not quite sure if I'm going for the Classic, or Evolution.
The only difference I see is focus assist and better scopes on the Evo. Has anyone tried them both?

I've had both. I obviously went for the Evolution, because I figured those extra features would come in useful, and they have. It's more of a DP toolbox, I guess, and though most of my work is regular operating, they are still handy to have. When it's a trade off between gear fetishism and money, gear wins for me.
I just uploaded the relevant brochures to this directory: http://steadivision.com/transvideo for you to peruse. Happy Christmas,
All the best,
