New products have been added. Arri dovetail plates, 1-2-3 Arri blocks, Canatrans trasmitter mounts and more. Check out the new additions to the site, and the expanded options for mounting Prestons, transmitters etc.
Love the 123 blocks and pretty much everything else you guys make. It's the only way to get the preston MDR right under the camera dovetail plate

Definition of Ethics: Moral principles or practice.
Mike Skipp and Chris Bangma is it your policy to knock-off everyone’s products? You guys have knocked-off Panavision, Libra Head, Omni Shot, Arriflex, Hill Products, Cinematic Precision and others, so many in fact that you are open to a class action lawsuit. Do you guys have any original thought at all?
I cannot count the number of times I have been contacted to fix your product.
Greg Bubb do not give them any information because they will steal it!
I ask everyone to boycott purchasing from Film-Stuff and Cinewidgets. Please do not encourage the practice of knock-offs. They have no ethics!

Jerry, lets get the facts straight... Mike Skipp has been machining for over 30 years for the film business. He has had contracts with Panavision, Clairmont, Otto etc. I would hardly say that he knocks off peoples products, when he was commissioned to design them.
As for the Libra, Mike is the sole manufacture of Libra parts worldwide, so I do not think you could accuse someone of knocking off something they designed. (You are welcome to come review the Libra supply agreement if you like)
Cinematic Precision and Jerry Hill, are selling Arri accessory blocks, which were first produced by Skipps Engineering, so it looks like you are the one knocking off products now.
As for knocking off products, the adapter bushings that you sell are a copy of the bushings made by Mike Skipp. In fact we have the invoice with your name on it, showing that you purchased bushings from Mike, then shortly thereafter made your own.
Many customers asked Mike to make a better Preston motor mount, since yours frequently strip out.
Remember this country is built on free enterprise and competition, if you cant stand the heat, get out of the fire.
