Hi all, the other day we went low mode and my range finder got pretty useless for a while. We had a very heavy studio mattebox (we are using Hawk C-series where the front element spins when racking focus, so when a pola filter is on the clip on mattebox is not an option) and a very light camera body (Red Helium) so the steadicam op asked me to not mount the horns on the mattebox, which would have make the configuration too front heavy. So my question is: what’s your favorite spot to mount the horns of your rangefinder when going low mode?
Cinematic Precision makes a low angle Cinetape bracket designed to be mounted off the front of the top handle - I also have a 3D printed version of the same bracket, but unfortunately my version isn’t as rigid (atleast in its current form). Another thing I’ve seen that I really enjoy is adding a 15mm rod out the front of the top handle (also available for Cinematic Precision as “Motor Rods”) and then adding a 15mm rod clamp with a 3/8” hole on it - this keeps the Cinetape in the same place but keeps it nice and low key.
