Can someone tell me the manufacturer of this MDR mounting bracket?
I'm interested in purchasing one.
Thanks!

Looks like a Keslow transmitter paddle. What you really want is the Skipps Engeerining "MODULAR PRESTON MDR BRACKET"


You can get it from Tom Gleason

Using that bracket you can get your mdr right under your camera mounting plate, check out these crappy iPhone photos

I love that bracket. Skipps makes some other brackets that I also highly recommend called the "123 brackets"

Thanks Again.
Definitely interested.
I'm just curious how you would mount it to the top of the Alexa Handle.

Thanks.

the Modular mount clamps onto a 19mm rod or the smaller sizes (with reducer bushings), so to make it work you'd get a "ARRI 235 UTILITY ROD " screw it into the handle via the internal 5mm allen and mount the mdr that way. also if you pick up some "1,2,3, blocks" you can mount any manner of accessories any way you want.
