1 pair of Cinevate CF Rails
1 Cinevate 15mm Rails block

1 Handle from Reid Supply
1 L Bracket mount from photo store
2 Hot Shoe mounts

nice job Rad, very sturdy looking.

I slapped something together for a 48hour film in June of 2007, and posted this pic of rig then:

I'm not sure what you mean. The square bracket that everything is attached to? I built that part.

Lilliput 7" 800x480 monitor.
Focus is much easier than with the built in screen. I'm trying to put together a 10.4 hd monitor to replace it.

It is a skater dolly that allows you to orbit the camera around an object. It is from a DIY plan, but I didn't build it - bought it on Ebay.
