I just stole 1117$ from Zacuto. maybe more. But i'm glad i did XD

First, let me apologize to zacuto for not using my
credit card in their store this month.

I was ready to buy the tactical shooter,
when suddenly i found 3 pipes lying around
from a bike rack that i never used.


Then, magically... i came up with this:















I think Follow Focus is doable with the D|Focus DSLR Mount

Matte Box. I was thinking about the 4x4 from cinecity.

Weight for the shoulder pipes is also doable.
A couple of holes were done for adding an extra plate ( 1 Portable recorder or Mic )


I took the neck from a 10$ tripod on ebay.

So far, the most significant downside is the eye distance for the Z-Finder.
NO, is not adjustable. So far, working great thou.




Thanks for watching ;)

Let me know what you guys think.

Pretty resourceful. With the money you save, you could go a pretty sweet prime.

In place of the mount you have now, I wonder if this would get you the adjustability for an eyepiece. I have one on order for something else but I'll let you know what the quality and adjustability is like!

HA! nice one. I made a fig rig out of a bike rack our neighbours threw out.

Great fun
