How much can I mount on my XL2

My shooting conditions require an Anton Bauer battery mount, an on-camera light, and an on-camera wireless audio receiver. If the battery mount attaches to the shoulder pad, and the on camera light attaches to the accessory shoe, whare can I mount my wireless receiver?

Velcro it to somewhere. Tape deck door maybe? That's the easy solution. Wireless recievers aren't heavy. I've seen a few setups that are setup like this too.

Also, this should be in the XL2 area. Maybe some kind op can move it on over there.

If you are using a Anton Bauer battery then you must be using the 'Anton Bauer QRXL12 Gold Mount". From there you can add the "Anton Bauer ABWM-KIT Universal Wireless Mounting Plate Kit" and that will allow you to mount a wireless reveiver box to it. My Shure UP-4 wireless kits came with a mounting box each so all I needed was the bracket and then I piggyback both boxes.

I've had good luck mounting a Sennheiser G2 receiver between the accessory mount and the camera handle on that little piece at the top that anchors the mount to the camera (with the whole in it) - the receiver fits perfectly in there with a bit of velcro.

Another option here, same idea but made specifically for the XL2.

This one is made specifically for Senn G wirelles mounting.
