can't wait to see the low mode bracket for that thing! The origin should be cool...maybe this spring?

They've got one - a long, heavy plate. Didn't get a chance to go low mode with it the other day, and not sure I want to, but hey - I'll give anything a try.

There was a lot of vibration in the shots, the shots being mostly simple leads and follows with an actress. An Arri iris rod base plate mounts to the very front of the camera and this plate, which is very short, mounts to a sliding base plate which then mounts to the Steadicam plate. There's a significant gap between the back 2/3's of the camera and the sliding base plate so I wonder if this contributed to that vibration. Not to mention, it's a whole lotta mass that has to magnify any bit of play in the rig (not that there's any play in MY rig...pu-SHAW!).

They're making a plate that will sit flush along the bottom of the camera and flush against the Steadicam plate so no gap and able to center the camera on the rig.

Why not just flip upside down? its digital. Why bother top mounting when its a key stroke in post. I am supprised that it cant be done on camera like Varicam, a simple image flip menu item.

a great idea, but you might scrape the ground with the top of that thing! Seriously, how much did it weigh? I know one of the guys at Dalsa and the next gen of that camera might be pretty cool.

I can never seem to convince people to let me shoot upside down. I guess they'd rather see vibration from the wonky low mode plates (the f-900 from panavision is a joke) than a fairly solid image.

39 lbs. without the lens and without all the extra plates you need just to mount the thing. And you need to be tethered but it's actually not too bad. Thicker than you'd like it to be but a single cable and pretty slinky for its size.

I Used a lot of upside down shooting, but I first explaind the director that this is much better and much stable then low mode cage, and much faster to switch from Hi mode to Low mode, without Low mode bracket!
