Good Morning,


It will be inteersting to see who actually gets theirs first, regardless of order.



Here in Canada we have a saying, "If you want to hide anything, put it in the post!""

I too have a steady cam project waiting!! Kind a hard to use the xl2 or H1 viewfinders, and my fu 1000 is impossible!!!




any smallhd creative mounting solutions other than buying a noga or such??

If you are looking to put this on a stabilizer, I'd recommend (just from the pix) the U-bracket accessory on the Small HD site. A yoke such as this is the best way to mount a monitor on a Steadicam as it allows for tilting on the center of gravity (I'm assuming here the side threads are at the CG...?!) which maintains the balance of the rig as you make adjustments. Ideally both the tilt and pan pivots should integrate spring washers so that you can make those adjustments without having to loosen or tighten knobs.

I will try manfrotto 482 micro ball head,(because I alredy have one) but to find the correct balance is hard (not symetric).

tripods, heads, monopods, light stands, camera supports, lighting supports, professional tripod 482 - MICRO BALL HEAD

so... as Charels suggested the easyest way is the U-bracket accessory on the Small HD site.

One more point I will make about this: LCD monitors have a limited vertical viewing angle, and thus through the act of booming through the range of your stabilizer you can lose sight of the image as it "reverses". It's helpful to pre-set the tilt of the monitor for a given shot to minimize this effect for the majority of the shot. With a yoke as I described, you simply reach down and adjust the monitor and keep shooting. With a ball mount, Noga arm or the like you need both hands to make the adjustment, which is obviously tough while wearing the rig, plus you have to tweak the balance afterwards. Not good.

While this little ballhead is versatile, it really doesn't have much stability for an LCD monitor if you're on the move. If you like the ballhead features, I'd recommend saving your dollars for a sturdier model.

Yeah I bought the u-bracket with my order but I just got a noga are for my regular on rails setup. This is the first one I have purchased and I must say its a really cool mount. I got the 16X9 cinearm.

John, others,

I think the Noga is a great attachment for weddings and events, I do my shar eof them.

for my my three part series I am doing out in the field I was planning on making a mount to go on the back bracket of my xlh1, particularly sense this camera is fron heavy!

Of course balance and position of the camera will make the final decision.

I was going to try and avoid having it mounted down low as I wont be able to see where I am going in the field in rough conditions.

suggestions welcome of course.

Does anyone know if we'll be getting shipping confirmation numbers today? Or when they'll be shipping?
