I've been looking at mounting options for the Hyperdeck. Anybody have any options other than the 5lb plate that Blackmagic offers?

We just got one, as soon as the mounting plate comes out we are going to pick one up and try and slap a v-mount lock on it so we can pop it on and off camera/back of my monitor quickly.
I can't find details of the weight yet but it's aircraft aluminum with lots of holes drilled through it, so I doubt it will weigh much at all, and I figure because the archer 1 could always do with a bit more weight up front behind the monitor, it will probably feel a little nicer balanced because of it.

Here's mine. Velcro added for surface protection. Solid placement and capture. All functions available without removing.

@Ramon--I'm in town and working nearby all week. Text me and let's get together.

Turns out the plate weighs 5lbs. I'm having my CNC guy make a X bracket that will accomodate a Vdock assembly or any type of 3/8 16 hole.
Nice job Brant. My rigs a little different so I'll probably side mount mine.
ERIC..........thanks for the news flash! Velcro...I've heard of that stuff.

I'll take some pics one I get it configured.

Ramon do you mean 0.5lbs or 5lbs?

Just that 5lbs seems a hell of a lot of weight for such a small plate made out of aluminum with lots of holes in it?

Also I haven't been able to find specs for it anywhere online and they're not in stock over here in England yet, can you get hold of them in America already?

Somewhat off your topic but still on the topic of the Shuttle, do you guys just carry a couple of SSD drives, or do you have a quick way to format them on set if/when you run out of space?
