Re: Shoulder Mount like this?

The Build Quality is quite good. Something youd expect from Companys like Genus for example. You can Slide the Rods into the Baseplate if you need, on my Rig i used shorter ones, because id like to get rid of all useless extra weight. You can slide the Shoulder Pad back and forth by the way. The Lens height is between my mouth and nose on the shoulder. I got a screw and a locking bolt in the base of the camera, how come you ask?

Looks like a good solid setup at a good price, what handles are you using on your rig? I'm trying to locate a U.S. dealer does anyone have any hints?

The handles are the ones from Cinecity India. Theyre alright. If youre looking for good ones, i can recommend also the ones from Shape, they have a cool quick lock function.

I think he's asking because the picture shows a small (in front) and a large (I always forget the exact size names) mounting screws, and the F3 only has two small ones on it's base. That would mean that you would have to replace the larger one with the same size as the forward smaller one. Is this what you did, or did you replace the larger one, or only use one of the screws?

Re: Shoulder Mount like this?

Quite happy with th Tilta baseplate that arrived today. Solidly built and actually proper for a larger camera like my AF100. I would also liken it to the quality of Genus products, though maybe a little more heavy duty - there doesn't seem to be any wobble, flex or play when it's all tightened down properly. If you're looking (and they are HARD to find!) I got mine from a Canadian reseller in about 5 days, link below, $325 shipped...

Matthias, what are you using for an alternate camera plate? I thought the manfrotto 501 would fit, but it's just a bit too narrow. Not hat it matters as the included plate is sturdy, but it would be nice to be able to have everything integrate.

Hi Matthias, what battery mount/power-adapter unit are you using? (it looks a neat fit with the Tilta baseplate)

Re: Shoulder Mount like this?

I have been drooling over a Tilta base plate for the last few months since I first saw one as part of a rig. The hardest part of it was actually purchasing a rig in the USA. Well good things come to those who wait...

Re: Shoulder Mount like this?

I just got a Tilta shoulder mount. It's OK, probably the best there is at this price point but not without a few small issues. Most notably you will need a riser for the front rods if you need to get the correct 80mm lens centre to rod spacing. The metal is quite soft and the quick releas plate too small in my opinion.
