My Nanoflash/EX1R mounting

The EX1R has a nice 1/4"-20 mounting towards the rear of the handle that the EX1 doesn't have. I decided to use it to mount my Nanoflash.

The pictures below illustrate the mount assembly. I locally fabricated the mount itself from strip aluminum. I then mounted a Dolgin EX-V battery adapter on the bracket to provide power. This provides a self-contained unit with power when removed from the camera for playback. I also have an EX1 battery with a power tap connector if I want to power both the camera and Nanoflash simultaneously.

Pictures below. The first is bracket only. The second with the battery adapter. The third is the complete assembly.

Re: My Nanoflash/EX1R mounting

Carroll,

Looks great! I am like 2 clicks away from ordering a nanoflash/ex1r combo. What can be said for the differences between nano and non-nano (SxS) footage and in what situations can you see the largest differences?? Anyone can feel free to chime in here! (-:

Rich.

How did you attach the Dolgin EX-V to the bracket? Just pop in some short pan heads and hope you don't hit a circuit board?

I used a couple of 6-32 screws with nuts. If you take the back off the EX-V you'll find there's nothing behind it to interfere with the screws. There's no circuit board in the EX-V.

Hi Carroll..
How did you power your nano flash up... I see a cable coming from the unit disappearing out of view... I am thinking of purchasing one for my EX1R

Thanks

He used the Dolgin unit which holds an EX battery.

I used a Dolgin EX battery adapter (EX-V NF adapter [EX-V NF] - $68.00 : Dolgin Engineering, Camera Power Solutions) mounted on the bracket. It has a Hirose connector compatible with the nanoFlash.
