Problem fixed with the Baseplate and the Custom-Button

Hallo,

sorry only by Google translate, but i think its intersing for you.


Due to the problem that you reach on the G30/XA20/XA25 very poorly the button on the left front (Custom) on the rotary wheels and also the battery exchange without unscrewing the tripod plate goes, I've thought of something.

A spacer consisting provided with matching holes of a square aluminum "tube" and was cut to the correct length.

Thus, the final looks at the camera:

Exact match that of the custom button and the scroll wheel is reached:

Here Manfrotto Baseplate and view the custom button:

The camera "sits" nicely on it.
It looks beautiful also the plastic closing plugs that make the whole beautiful to look at:

And also to the unlocking changing the battery to get to it nicely:

Thank you to have my "mechanic", a good friend who can build such things, and also has the necessary tools.

I am very happy with it, now is the XA25 ready to use.

Re: Problem fixed with the Baseplate and the Custom-Button

Hello,

last Friday my XA25 has passed the first real-life Test.

A Event with German (Speaking) and English (Simultaneous interpretation) on the XLR in.
5.5 hours which happen on stage with my single XA25 follow the happen on the stage.
My VG20 ran as a safety Wide Angle shot too (if something goes wrong).
Then it made ​​a webcast with 2.5 hours in length.

Everything worked, the aluminum profile has been proven to me super come to everything on it.
