I was just reading the June 2006 issue of American Cinematographer, and there's a picture of Greg Smith operating in low-mode on Poseidon ... and it appears that his yoke is upside down. Which "bracket/widget/handle" would he have used to allow that?

Most of them. Standard F or D bracket or any of the new angled ones.

That's the way you do it.

Thanks Alec & Eric.

I've seen that bracket, but wasn't sure how it worked. I'm assuming that your arm posts have a small hole in them to allow for the locking pin? I know mine doesn't have one, so that's what threw me off.

Do you normally use longer "inverted" arm posts, or just the standard one?

The posts I own and have seen don't have holes. They have a groove running around the circumference of the post which secures it within either the block or the gimbal handle. Similar to a padlock.
