  1. Not sure if you figured this out as it's been a couple years, but for anybody else wondering what to do, here's a possible solution that I'm starting to use. As soon as I got my SmallHD, I hated the 2 pin lemo because my monitor bracket slightly obstructs the lemo input and slows down my setup time. So now, I have the L-series battery mount attached to the back of my SmallHD 703 and purchased an L-series dummy battery to D-tap cable (see attached photos). I've only used the cable once at the time of this post and it worked perfectly. I heard it could possibly give out though...possibly because of how cheaply it's made but I'll update if any issues come up! Another possible solution is to buy a G-mount/V-mount battery plate and directly mounting your monitor battery to the monitor. Anyways, hope that helps!
  2. Hey Chris! Thanks for the reply. Unless you absolutely believe its necessary to the vest, I don't think you'll need to worry about sending out new screws but I appreciate the offer! That's very kind of you! I just finished watching the video in the link you sent and made some minor adjustments to my vest as your video instructed. So hopefully it all works out! I'll have to look into getting some Loctite 222 though. But yeah, if I have any other questions, I'll definitely reach out! Thanks again! Nick
  3. I've had the exovest for a short while and still absolutely love it! But just yesterday I had a piece of it fall off that was supposed to be held by two screws. Luckily none of this happened during a take or while holding camera. I lost one of the screws but recovered the second one as well as the circular shaped plate that they were mounted to. I was able to buy a replacement screw at Home Depot today but wanted to ask if anyone had this happen to them before? To give a little more context, the pieces fell off after I had bumped my shoulder while walking through a door frame. I wouldn't say that I even bumped into it hard as I was walking a pretty calm pace exploring the set I was on. After I replaced the screw, I tightened it fairly tight to prevent it from happening again but noticed I couldn't swivel that should strap over to the metal latch. So I had to loosen it a bit until it felt comfortable. Does this mean that it might happen again? Thanks for any replies or solutions!
  4. Looking to buy my first vest, specifically the Fawcett Exovest. Anybody willing to sell? I'm located in L.A. Thanks, Nick
