my HD110 doesn't have the v-mount on the bottom, it's a regular threaded hole, so I just used whatever quick-release plates I had laying around to make it work for now. The newer HD200/250 has the v-mount.

And yes, I go handheld all the time. I have the rod-mounted handles from Cavision, and it takes the strain off of the lens. The lens doesn't take any of the weight of the camera, it's all on the rods.

It's a good investment to protect your lens from bumping against the ground, even when you do not have a mattebox.

What 2/3" camera are you using?
