Hi Operators
I'm in the market for a new docking and balancing bracket. I'm working on building a specialty purpose rig, and one of the things I need to be able to do with it is put it on the balancing bracket and operate it from there, kind of like a tripod.
So far I've looked at the Hill Docking Bracket and the Baer-Bel version of the same.
If anyone has any advice for me in this I would appreciate it.

The Hill docking bracket is the BOMB! Easy to use and very safe when walking away from the rig. ACs love it also when working on the camera. I think you would like it.

Hi Toby:

Yes, the best Docking is the Jerry Hill( http://www.steadimoves.com/parts.html. )Maybe is a "little" expensive, but is the better for far.
MK-V has a very good Docking Stand too, see your web page (www.mk-v.com)
Best regards,
