I had a chance to fly the Clipper 312 for 9 days on set while my Clipper 24 was in for repair. The 312 is a great rig!

2 of my favorite things:
The new gimbal is terrific I like it much better the the older Clipper models
The built in digital level was not distracting the way I find my after market one.

My biggest problem with the rig is that the sled is to light. I added the weight rods that screw in the battery rods and I still had to tape a 2 lbs weight to the bottom of the sled to get the post to the size I want. I was flying a PAL Digi beta 790 with 2 wireless receivers, eyepiece still on.

Make sure you get a daylight viewable monitor!!!


Hope I helped

Hi Phillip

Thanks' for your help. I also really belief it is a good rig but I will try it before I buy it <_<

I work mostly with prohd, F750/900 and the red one and I belief this rig is enough for this cams.

Thanks, again for any help . . .
