Hi folks. I made a few of these after needing something like it on a job.
It may be useful to some of you out there as well.
When I have a Sony or Panasonic camera on the sled, I take off the Viewfinder, but wanted to take some of the weight in the rear and place it up front. Wireless TX,( Modulus, Canatrans, etc..) or some Audio Receivers, etc..
This Tray adjusts for the different sizes between the Panasonic and Sony finder dovetails. Slides side to side a couple of inches to help balance.

I'm including a few pictures.
One is a closeup of a Sony Broadcast dovetail from a cam I used on last years Latin Grammy's shown for referrence of the finder part this tray will slide on.
