Here are some images and the latest design/info for our new TwinArm
SteadiCam Monitor Mount.
The goal was to mount the 10” Transvideo monitor and its yoke to the
post clamp at its balance point. Mounting the monitor at its COG
allows the operator to change the viewing angle including
the yaw angle without affecting SteadiCam rig balance.
The design allows full adjustment of the monitor to improve counterweight
effect and viewing position, it includes our custom monitor yoke that
mounts onto monitor balance point. The yoke is machined to achieve
balanced side to side for the perfect COG mount.
The TwinArm shown is mounted via its top bar to the ¾ key pocket on the
post clamp. The mount's top bar can also be adapted to mount to most
any post clamp.
For low mode, turn the unit on the quick-release post clamp.
The monitor can easily be removed for transport in its own case.
Unlike other systems that change the yaw angle at the spigot/bridge-bracket
or at the center post, we allow adjustment of the yaw angle at the
base of the yoke and eliminate the weak mounting point at the spigot
altogether. Spigot mounts that will not lock in place are known
to spoil the balance of the rig when the monitor gets bumped.
- full flexible adjustment and positive locking with Upgrades
Innovations ball-loc system at any adjustment point.
- changing the yaw viewing angle at the monitor base and not at the
post keeps the weight shift to a minimum.
- scissor motion of the TwinArms lets you move the monitor not just up
or down but also in or out to decrease or increase your panning
inertia when needed.
- Full pivoting monitor and yoke about vertical and horizontal axis for
optimum monitor view.
- For mounting your monitor with the yoke onto a camera, all you
need is our 15mm Ball-Loc Clamp # 11856, it accepts a 15mm
stud/rod. Alternative options are a 15mm stud or a 5/8 spigot
adapter at the yoke base, which also has a 3/8 thread (offset by
