Which arm fits the accessory shoe?

Just in case anyone is up right now....

My XL2 will arrive tomorrow and I'm ordering some other accessories for it.

On this page: http://store.yahoo.com/cinemasupplies/irarmbr.html which monitor bracket will mount to the accessory shoe on the XL2? I wasn't sure how the XL2 shoe is constructed and I wanted to make sure before I laid down the cash on a bracket. I believe one 1/4-20 end will mount the Panasonic LCD I just purchased.

Also, before I purchase one of these, if someone knows of a cheaper alternative, please let me know. However, keep in mind that I will need to have the monitor upside down on the camera (I'll be using a micro35). I don't think other brackets I've seen will allow me to do that.

Thanks,

Kelly

Kelly,

This is the one you want, or anyone that says hot shoe.

or this one:

If you hadn't already purchased the monitor, I would have recommended the Marshall at B&H

You can flip the screen image without hanging it upside down.

Kelly,

I just read your previous post on powering your monitor. I'd like to make a suggestion. I haven't heard of anyone having this problem, BUT, that is a lot of weight on your camera's hot shoe. Monitor, large bracket, and a battery large enough to power it for any length of time. Not to mention that the XL2 is already front heavy.

When I bought mine, (XL2) I got the Anton Bauer battery kit in a package deal from B&H. It has the HyTron 50 battery, Titan 70 charger/AC power supply, and mounting bracket. This not a cheap set-up. If your pockets are deep enough, by all means, get the AB set-up. If not, get a battery belt, or extend the cord on that Nebtek adapter and hang it on your body, maybe rig it on a sling.

If you have to carry the XL2 around (I don't know what kind of shooting you intend to do) it will get heavy, fast! And like I said, it seems like a lot of stress on the hot shoe.

Dan
