Hello everybody,


I am wanting to pull the trigger on the SBL RainbowHD after being around it the last few shoots. I am currently using the Marshall monitor that came with the Archer2. I have been searching around the forums and online and can't seem to find the answer to my question. 


I'd love to use the Archer2 yoke if possible to save some money, and I know Transvideo sells the dogbone attachments, but I'm unclear if they will work on the Rainbow 7", however I know they work with the HD6 and HD8. I was looking at their yokes on their website and it doesn't seem that the yoke tilts. The monitor tilts with the constant torque knobs, but from what I see it doesn't look like the yoke tilts. This would be a deal breaker. And I have looked at the cam jam, but I'm not entirely sure if their yoke works with the Rainbow 7". 


Any ideas as to what my best option would be utilizing the factory yoke of the Archer2? Any other advice. Thanks guys!
