Hi all,

Did a corperate today, needed some lowmode shots. First time with this Rig, so did the quick option, upside down Camera.
Flip function did work, mirror don't...

Is this a known problem with the Flyer Sled.. and how do i resolve this ?

Thanx, Erik

Hi Erik,

Yes, this is a known problem. The problem is you didn't know about it in time. I understand that Tiffen will be happy to correct it.

Surely you didn't flip the monitor as well? It should have been OK just inverting the rig and tilting the monitor bracket.

All the best.,

Chris

I'm back in town for a couple aof weeks, so give me a call.

Nop, i didn't flip the monitor as well, just tilting the monitor. The Flip/Flop went automaticly. After this tried the mirror function, on/off no difference.

More bad luck.., the protection rubber on the gimbal which prevents scratches between gimbal and handgrip on the post went of. Can this be clued with fast glue, or don't bother.. and leave it of.

Hi Erik
Send an email to my desk and I will pick it up when I get back from Russia next week. Re the rubber bumper, just glue it back on. Super glue will do it but makes the rubber go hard and I don't like super glue around gimbals, EvoStik (rubbe rbased impact adhesive) would be better.

Today i received a complete new monitor from Tiffen. I was just returned from a corperate shoot and put directly the monitor on the Rig. Miror is now possible and works great.
The shot last week went however well and was great considering the mis-orientation of left/right..

Thanks Robin and thanks to Tiffen for this great customer service !!!

Best, Erik

Hi Erik
You are welcome, I thought the alternative mirror brain flip surgery might be a bit drastic.
