I am currently flying an older Actioncam Zero G sled with an arm post size of 3/4". Maybe I am looking in the wrong places but I cannot find an f/j bracket that will fit my sled. Traditionally I fly older heavy 35mm cameras that require the usual f/j bracket design so a poorly executed design will not work. Is there anyone out there with a similar problem or a way to create/design a f/j bracket that will fit my thicker post.

Thanks.

Camrin;

Haven't my J and F brackets worked on your rig?

Then try PRO-GPI and cinewidgets. Very sturdy and last for decades of hard use.

Not expensive.

Yea Janice I remember renting them but it would not fit. My post is 3/4 inch. The cinewidget D bracket is 5/8ths. Do you know the dimensions of the PRO-GPI post?

Shot in the dark, but you could try contacting Jess Haas through the forum. He has an actioncam and generally makes whatever he needs for it that he can't find.

My setup doesn't use a 3/4" post (or need an f/j bracket). Are you sure its 3/4" and not 19mm? My older Actioncam setup is all metric. Its only a .05mm difference but add a few errors in accuracy and loose tolerances and you can have problems when trying to make something.

Are the posts in your arm removable? If so a couple of custom posts may allow you to use a standard 5/8" one. I don't have time to make anything up right now but talk to Tom at cinewidgets. He can probably help you out. If that doesn't work out let me know and I will see what I can do.
