Hi
is there a bracket made like a low-mode bracket that could be used in handheld mode to hang a motor from ? One that bolts into the carry handle on an HDW 750 P ? The system Im using has an Arri made bracket that uses Arri 15mm rods and has a rosette on the New York side but the bars are very flexible and if grabbed they flex the gears either off the lens or out of wack. I cant mount from the rosette. If the motor was hung from above it would be independent of all the flexing..
Im looking to hire one of these in the UK, or buy if its reasonably priced..
Can anyone point me to a resource ?

Hi Rory,

If you're just looking to mount a lens motor you could buy one of Jerry Hills 2 N 1 (Lollipop) motor mounts www.steadimoves.com
This mounts to the rosette on the arri plate and will very securely hold a motor in place. Its a great little bracket that has saved my ass countless times.

Unfortunately we are using the Canon ENG lenses which have the servo unit on the right (NY) side, same as the rosette. I need to mount the motor on the "operator" side.

Maybe the plate that Baer-bel make might work for you?
www.baer-bel.de
I havent used it myself but it looks like its thin enough to fit on the bottom of the camera without causing too much discomfort to the operator (providing he wears a shoulder pad). you could then mount 15mm iris rods to the fromt of the plate and mount your motors from there.
Alternatively it might be a better (but heavier) option to just use the standard arri bridgeplate with some 19mm bars. If you go that route you might consider getting the "Anita" pad from rocsteadi gear:
www.rocksteadigear.com
its a great shoulder pad that has a pair of shoulder straps to hold it in place on the ops shoulder. it works very well and is very reasonably priced.
hope this helps

Chrosziel has a replacement for the Sony-V-mount tripod plate under the Camera.
It is rigid enough to work with a remote focus like Bartech or Preston (15mm) and it is still compatible with your existing tripod plate.

Hi Rory:

We have an original Sony plate, and a little accesorie 2n1 was fixed by 2 screw allen.
Over there we can use 2N1 Jerry Hill bracket .
You can fix this accesorie in two side.
After I promise post anoter pics.
My english is too limited to explain that :(
Best,

Gus.

If you're simply looking to hire/rent a solution, then you should consider the Chrosziel rod adapter previously mentioned. I know in NYC these are available to rent for something like $25/day. Last year I had a shoot that ran long enough that I simply bought one (I think it was around $450) and rented it back to production. All the pro-style Sony cameras from the DSR-300 up to the F900 fit. I believe Panasonics require a slightly different model and I know that my old JVC DV500 needed a different model. Good for mounting followfocus, mattebox, handgrips, etc. I love sticking my Aaton handgrips onto video cameras tis way--so much more comfortable to handhold.

Another pic for my 2N1 for Video & HD cameras.
For me, is a great idea, easy and cheaper solution.
Best,

Gus.
