I found out this morning that I’ll be in Sacramento CA for the next 2 weeks. I haven’t really had a chance to play around with that 3 legged adjustable dslr rig I picked up a few weeks back so I figured if it fit in my camera bag i’d take it with me. I was surprised to find that it’s the prefect size for my Ape Case. The only change I had to make when packing was to add a padded camera bag divider over the top of my camera gear. I’m thinking a cheap foam 12 inch laptop case might be a good way to pack this thing in the future.

Since the unit is relatively thin, I still have plenty of room underneath for 2 lenses (Canon 50mm f1.2 and 35mm f1.4), the Sony CLM v55 monitor, the Sennheiser G2 wireless kit, the Okii usb follow focus, an intervalometer, and the Canon t2i with battery grip. I also have the Zoom h4n and some extra batteries packed away in the side pouches. That should be more then enough gear to cover an event or shoot a short film.

I plan to spend some more time with this rig over the next few weeks. If I can find the time, I might even finish the video review I started working on a when the rig showed up last month. It looks like the which makes this an even more attractive deal and less then I paid for it.

On a side note: Those two pictures were taken with my cell phone. The Droid 3 has a surprisingly nice camera built in for a cellphone.
