Last week I was working in a 3D film. Freestyle rig with RED Epic. I used my 3A arm. Everything was ok when suddenly one socket block pin broke. The arm was attached in the hardmount, upon a Panther. Fortunately nothing was damaged, any conncetor, camera, freestyle or sled, except the arm.
I have two questions.
1- Maybe the hardmount was not correctly placed? The socket block was oriented to the 12 o´clock and the arm was streched to 3 o´clock. Can be this a mistake? I suspect that the socket block have to be oriented in the same direcction that the arm or completcly opposite.
Or It had to be working well and the socket broke by the fatigue?
2- Somebody know where can I find a socket block pin?
