This topic was posted 3 years ago but to users that have this issue there are a couple of solutions. I own a provid sled and I love the high contrast crt green screen that was part of the original design of the Provid model. But for HD jobs or when working with a lot of the lens adapters which invert the image I bought a 1.5" monitor bracket that has adjustable Rods. This allowed me to keep the crt for use on sunny days and with film video taps, but have the flexibility to maintain Dynamic Balance with the rig.


Another operator in Canada named Jeff cools actually rewired the sled removed the built in crt and repaced it with the same mounting hardware with a 16x9 Marshall HD monitor.


One way or another I would suggest keeping the original CRT and buying a monitor bracket (Sachtler Artemis has a good one) unless you work only in HD all the time!

Brandon,

Could you post a couple of photos so we can see how you mounted the brackets? Thanks!
