Wondering if anyone can tell me where i can buy rods to mount my focus motor to. I'd like to attach the rods right to my Clippers dovetail plate. I'd appreciate the help.

Thanks ;)

Good morning,

Glad to help you in your search. Tiffen does indeed make motor mounts for our Steadicam systems and plates. For your Clipper plate, we offer the kit of one bracket that screws into the plate with two rods for two motor clamps.

Frequently folks buy these in multiples, because- as was the case with my last big rig- you need to be able to reach up and around part of the camera body to get to the lens at an advantageous point of contact. Using a few "dogbones" and rods, I was able to put my focus and iris motor wherever it needed to be.

Below is the part number and price per kit. Contact me if you'd like to order them.

Part # 250-7915 15mm Motor Rod Set ( 2 rods and mounting bracket ) $ 260.00 per set.

Best to all,

Dan,

Try logging out and clearing your cache. Then log in again, goto "My Controls" and edit your display name. If, by chance, you have changed it already since signing up (you can't change it again for a month) then ket me know and I will inform the Admin. Thanks & welcome.

I did change it within the last month, so i'm guessing that would be the issue than. I appreciate the help.

Any word on Dovetail Plate Rods for the Flyer LE?

If not, I can just machine some Cinewidgits rods to fit..
