I need a better mdr3 bracket to mount from 15mm rods.
Any ideas?
My current version is too offset. Looking for a version that centers the mass.

this is what is configured on most of the cvolution camins (mdr). its a clamp with v-mount clip which attaches to a v-clip screwed into the camin. its nice that it winds up centered and can be rotated around the rod. only issue is it sticks out a bit, but not too bad when under the lens.

 

which rig are you running? i dont know how you like to mount the mdr, but i have been velcro+bongo tieing the camin to the underside of my pro t-bracket, and when using an mdr i try to acquire an mdr dovetail mount. (http://gpiprosystems...accessories.php)

 

ill be in atlanta with it in a few days if you have any interest in checking it out.

Hi Brett.

I have a couple of PRO sleds, an MK-V and a Sachtler. The PRO's have Betz top stages so I using 15mm rods as the mounting base for everything.

I've really enjoyed using this one which you could rig a rod mount bracket to quite easily. It's designed by Toronto camera assistant Kar Wai Ng. Here's the link: http://www.karwaing....dr-cheeseplate/
