Extension Cable for C300 grip

I am looking for the extension cable for the C300 grip so I can locate it onto my Movcam handle. I know Zacuto sell one but you have to buy their other gear that I don't need.

Having searched on the Web I can't seem to find one.

Anyone know of other options?

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Found out Arri makes one but can not find who sells it.

Anyone have one?

Hand Grip Adapter HGA-1 for Canon C300 K2.66191.0

I have contacted Arri and Abel and hope to get an answer soon. Looks like a great addition to any shoulder rig for the C300.

I think that is a handgrip by Arri and not the cable.

It is a cable and a handle holder for the stock handle. Price from Abel coming.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Arri got back to me and they will sell for $563 and 4 week wait. He said Abel could do better on time and price. I am waiting on Abel to get back to me.

I you put the line below in Google you will get a PDF that shows the item.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Thanks Paul,
I have used the Arri Plate and Handgrips with the C300 and it is very well made.
Looks like the extender and cable for the C300 grip is well thought out.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Agree it looks great but a 4 week wait will mean a no for me. Still have not heard back from Abel.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Hope it's better than the Denz version.

Used it on friday and removed it a few hours later. The additional part that fixes on to the rails does not work well and effectively made it unusable.

Not well thought out at all.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Thanks for the input Syeed,

I could not wait 4-6 weeks they told me it would take so I ordered the Zacuto one. Will fit this on my Movcam rig.

Also looking at getting the FocusPlus+ from Edelkrone for my focus on the left side. I think the two combined will be nice shoulder setup. Of course I will have some additional custom features. Once set up I will start a thread showing the full set up and why it is that way.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

I have to say the Zacuto grip re-locator work very nice. Arrived today and used on a job tomorrow. So nice when shoulder mounted to have my hands lower.

Re: Extension Cable for C300 grip

Follow up to the Denz part:

We found the problem in the vocas basplate not fixing the 15mm rods securely enough. So actually the rod turned not the grip on the rod ;o)
So the Denz grip reloactor wasn't then problem in the end.

Yep, the Denz grip locator is fine. great bit of kit.

Just have to find a base plate that will hold the rods securely.
