  1. If you use one of the jumper blocks that has a blank space, the blank space operates as hot swap for the camera position. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  2. Actually I must have been thinking of post clamps, not docking brackets as they don't carry any shaft collars with a small enough outer diameter for docking clamps. My bad. Tim Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  3. I don't have the ergo handle. The bearing is centered in the gimbal itself by pro but the gimbal between the forks is user adjustable using one of the tools they include with the rig. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  4. Did you try adjusting the end caps on the yoke to center the gimbal in the forks? I spoke to Jack and he said they can't test that centering on the bench without a loaded up camera. I had sent my gimbal in for service and it was failing the 90 degree test when I got it back. A couple minutes adjusting the end caps and it was perfect, even on a light build.

  5. I think I might have a couple but I'm pretty sure you can get them at McMaster Carr inexpensively. Tim Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  6. Make sure that the hdmi out on the a7 is set to 1080 instead of 4k or something else. I had that problem when I first plugged it in. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  7. Before the last season of our show I went to one of those running shoe stores where they watch you walk and measure your feet. I told them I needed dark colored shoes that don't force my foot forward when my heel hits to aid in walking slowly. I ended up with some Adidas running shoes that were all cloth uppers with some rubberized screen printing on top for some support. They were lightweight and really comfortable and lasted 22 episodes. Only problem was they were terrible in the cold or rain so neos or boots were also necessary. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  8. I don't have the atomos monitor, but the smallhd dp7hb is way too reflective for my liking, and their screen protector they sent with it didn't help much. I purchased some anti-reflective matte iPad screen protectors from Amazon and can cut 2 to fit the monitor from each one. It works quite well, and there are a lot of types to choose from to fit your taste. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  9. He's selling these for $65 shipped in the US with level and ptap connector. Send Joe a message through his site if you are interested. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  10. https://gearedirisworkshop.wordpress.com/2017/02/01/back-lit-spirit-level-for-steadie-cam/ A co-worker made me this spirit level for my monitor which has a mount hole for a 1/4-20 screw so I can mount it to my DP7-HB monitor. Some of our night scenes were so dark that I couldn't see my level, so this is what we came up with. It uses a level from McMaster Carr for a couple bucks. It's angled back towards the operator and is shielded enough to not be seen in reflections even of tabled pretty far. It also has ND and diffusion on it so the led isn't very bright or spotty, and the level is really easy to see. I put a ptap connector on it and run it off of the AB mount on the back of the monitor. He's selling these fairy cheaply if anyone is interested. The website is a work in progress but you get the idea. Tim Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  11. This would be funnier if this didn't happen to me on every rehearsal of every shot I do on the show I'm on. Take one is my first rehearsal. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  12. Ok, after some more playing around, it looks like the thinnest option I can do for a 2 inch post is 2.33". I'll have to get them printed in SLS and put helicoils in.,as well as order specialty small head screws, which would be slotted. I will assemble and ship to you once I receive it. Because of all this, cost would be $140 shipped in the US for a complete 2piece grip 3.5" tall. If you're interested, please send me a PM. I'll need 2 people interested to get this started. Thanks.

  13. If I do helicoils I may be able to make them thinner for both 1.5 and 2" posts. The issue is they wouldn't be user printable, I'd have to buy a tool and do them on demand. What would be the maximum thickness desired for 2" and 1.5" posts? A few people have sent me paypal - thanks! I can use that money for a helicoil tool and make a few up. I'd probably have to charge minimum $60-75 per grip to make it worth my time. Turnaround would be longer, but I could leave my current grips available for people who don't need really thin ones. Would anybody be interested in that? Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  14. The issue with going thinner is I can't make threads in a 3d printed part, and the square nuts are all the same size. The whole design is that thick to accommodate the square nuts. Due to printing minimum wall thickness, it pretty much has to be this size. But nylon can probably be sanded down on the outside if you want to try making it a little smaller. I tried to find another way to do it for 2" posts byt haven't come up with an alternate way to attach the parts. Tim Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
