Cinematographer Peter Holland needed a handheld setup for an energetic production. I put together this handheld rig for him that uses some Zacuto pieces and some RedRock parts. It's a fact that now-a-days, a lot of stuff is Frankensteined together whenever we're on set. It's very common to see components from a dozen manufacturers on one rig.
Here's how this simple setup comes in handy when going from handheld to tripod mount. Now the quick-release plate can be slipped onto the rest of the baseplate on your tripod. Add a monitor, like the cool Marshall V-LCD50-HDMI 5 Inch LCD Video Monitor and you have a pretty nice studio-style setup.
Ain't it nice when all the manufacturers play nice? Thank goodness for standarization and forward thinking!
