Nice rigs! I like the man handle with the top plate. That would be nice for the C300.

Re: alternate top handle for C100/300

to update what i ended up doing, i went the route of a top cheese plate, which i wanted anyways, and the one i got, the genustech, has front facing 1/4 taps. throw in any old handle with a 1/4 thread rod and boom, secure, low profile, easy to remove handle!

i also got some nifty short 1/4" extention rods and going to give a shot at top mounting a FF, and then the bronstein mini shotgun mic, for an all in one, baseplate-less system that fits into my case. beautiful stuff, getting my rig darn close to how i like it, i'lll take some pics shortly.

Re: alternate top handle for C100/300

Hi everyone! I've fashioned myself a low profile handle for my C100 3 mths ago. I believe this is what everyone is looking for.
Low-Profile-Handle-Composite-pic | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

This fits C100 only (I think, as I do not have C300/500), and has a thumb screw that secures it exactly like the original C100 handle. It will not slip off. I've added an optional mic plate for 3rd party mics like the Rode Videomic Pro. This handle is strong enough for the camera with 70-200 F2.8 attached (please don't ask me about heavier lenses). At times I even carry my C100 on this handle with my Glidecam 4000 attached!

I made a few pieces for my friends and have a few left over sets. let me know if anyone is interested. I can put them up on eBay and post an auction link.
