uh...did you happen to try Tiffen for a bracket that might fit a Tiffen arm?

for a 5/8th one try Pro...or any other manufacturer of arms

wait...you are saying that Tiffen does not make j-brackets anymore? What the fack? Pretty silly if it is true -- maybe you'll have to get a post adapter from Tiffen, flip them off as you walk out the door, drive 6 miles west to Pro and buy one of their j-brackets (or go visit Tom Gleason/Cine-Widgets for a d-angle).

**just checked their site...can't Tiffen's f-bracket be used at the lower end of the arm post to make a j-bracket? Maybe they intend it to be used at the top with the gimbal handle upside down? For $425 it must do something special...anyone?

Exactly Ron,
It is a really good design to get the sled a little bit away from your body, and also return the gimbal to a more comfortable position in low mode. Dont think it can be used as a j bracket as is. you could drill through and insert a pin in double shear to hold it underslung.

I do own that thing(didn't know it was that expensive)and it does help a little
bud it doesn't prevent lowmode.....especially with my length
