Just wondering where I might find some 3/8 " camera mounting screws.
I need something slightly longer than the ARRI and Moviecam lengths.
Roughly 3/4" in length. I'm in Los Angeles and I've tried GPI. George only
has the short sizes.

Thanks, Chris Hood

Hardware store? :-) I've always had luck with the big ones - HomeDepot, Lowes, Menards.

McMaster-Carr

Since I'm using the XCS dovetails I have been using 3/8-16 Allen Head SS Bolts. Much cheaper then buying from a GPI or the like. You might even find Post clamps for $3 and docking collars for $8 at McMaster-Carr

nchopp, I have not had luck with regular hardware stores,
or the big box stores.
I need a screw head that is only 1/8" in height to
fit in my camera plates.

Eric, I actually have a couple XCS plates and I use the allens
for the large plate. I really like those things. Slots=GOOD.
I need a couple of longer screws for my shallow plates.
Looked through Mcmaster/Carr recently, didn't find the right
one however. Any other leads?

Thanks again, Chris

Just for interest Marcus at http://www.baer-bel.de/ has some exquisite camera screws 3/8s and 1/4" and any length you like. Also they are anodised to your own colour red,blue, black, gold so they dont get mixed up with other peoples kit. Doesnt matter if you lose a few though as they are very cheap contact Marcus direct or me for UK sales.
Cheers
