Great minds you know!

Bill,

That's good, as the actual contact area or engagement area of these screws is very small indeed, maybe .005 to .008. Not really meant to hold much of a load.

Hey, I can post images and I do belong to AARP! (Yet!) :-)

So here's one more.

It is finilly mounted directly to the cheese plate...
Also you will see the Footman Loops for the saftey straps.

Think it will go anywhere? :-)

Bill,

One last note I have been forgetting to add, but please put a filter on the lens! Got to keep those nasty bugs off.

There is ALWAYS a filter on all my lenses.
The only exception (I do not think this will apply to the XL2) is when doing macro work sometimes the focus distance is closer than the filter will allow.

Good thinking though. :-)

Wow, that rig is intense! I got away with using just one vacuum cup for my FX1. I had a the cup on the bonnet (hood (dang Americans:) and a small tripod directly over it, with tort bungie cords wrapped all around the tripod and the suction/vacuum cup. Thinking back, that was kind of crazy with no safety leaches or anything but that's what I do! Good work.

I used ones that were 16mm in lenth with a 3/8" thick cheese plate.

That's exactly the info I wanted. I too tried the 6/32 bolt but it looked suspect because there was lots of play until it hit bottom. I also thought metric was what I needed. Thanks for popping back in here to fill in the details.

Now I'm off to look for thumbscrews of that size.
