So I got my new Archer 2 a couple of weeks back and I'm very happy with it.
Two days ago, I was on a shoot with a pretty simple setup (Alexa, Zeiss Ultra Prime, Teradek bolt 300, Arri Wff and an on board battery)
This setup is definitely within the weight range of my rig but something weird happened with the dovetail plate and the locking mechanism.
When I mounted the dovetail plate to the camera setup and locked everything on the top stage, I flipped the rig to 90 degrees horizontal to check my drop time and suddenly the dovetail plate slips downwards as if it's not 100% locked.
This happened twice that day so I'm really comfortable with it.
Thank god the dovetail plate has two screws on the front and the back for security but what could be the problem?
I checked all the screws and everything is tight.
Here's a photo of the scratch that occurred to the dovetail plate after that accident
Any help is much appreciated.
