Hey all

I have searched and read other posts on how to run your fiber jumper from camera to vest so it wont effect the camera but am confused and struggling to find a system that works for me.

I currently run the fiber out the back of the camera, immediately tucked under the plate and taped off just before reaching the post. Then i let some slack dangle and feed the rest over my right shoulder (I operate normal not goofy). Now i put the rig on, do a few tweaks in missionary and all is well. The problem is when i change my relationship with the rig in a tracking shot the side to side goes quite a bit off. The only way i seem to work around this is to have a very fast drop time so the rig ignores the subtle change in the cables new relationship with the rig.

Should mention that i ensure no twists are in the jumper cable, and the rig is a clipper.

Hope i made that clear!
