Again, this relates to the Flyer: I'm looking at the Low Mode kit, Low Mode Camera Handle Clamp and the Low Mode F bracket in the Steadicam Accessories Pamphlet.

Does anyone have a couple photos they could post so I might see this stuff being used. I'm trying to envision how this hardware works but, I guess it's to abstract for my feeble mind to visualize.

Whirled peas? not a problem. The aforementioned, problem...

Thanks!

Hi Kip:

You might want to consider a second dovetail plate as well so if you need to go both ways your conversion time is quicker. Peter Abraham recommended that to me and it's been a great time saver.

I'm flying Sony XDcam on my Clipper for the next week so I'll try to email you some close-up shots of the low-mode set up.

Gents--

Anyone thinking low mode for video should be thinking of my fantastic and totally solid VLS.

Forget clamping to a plastic handle and relying on 8 M3 screws to hold your camera in place.

Think SOLID and SAFE.

Look at the picture below and rethink your plans.

Best,
