Rigging the FS5

So I am starting to figure out how to use and how to rig my FS5.

Here are my first simple kit parts. 2 ways of rigging wireless mics, with and W/O shotgun. And how to mount the Odyssey.

I am working on a quick release system for front rails for matte box and big lens support, and I already have nice simple solution for Metabones support, photos of that later, a $10.00 solution.

The 2 wireless mic supports are also very affordable. And some parts are 3D printed, I will sell them on my WEBstore but also provide them for free if you have your own 3D printer.

I am also making a very collapsible hood. It weighs nothing...

Lots more to come. Including shoulder mount kit.

Re: Rigging the FS5

Is that neoprene around the on-board monitor? How are you holding it on there, and does it stay okay?

It is made the same way as my Odyssey hoods.
Odyssey 7Q Hood by Westside AV

It is a layer of velcro fabric on the inside with black velour on the outside and plastic stiffener in between. It is held on with velcro on the EVF, it is a very sturdy setup I have sold lots of them for the Odyssey, this one Is just smaller, and it does not need the extra small plastic hood I make for the Odyssey. It folds up flat when not in use and is shaped so the switches can be accessed on the EVF.
