EOS-M Rig adapter  (2 of 5)

The Canon EOS-M is a pretty tiny little camera and there’s not a whole lot of room to mount accessories. In order to make the camera a little larger and add a few more mounting spots I attach it to this used flash bracket and a Giottos MH652 quick release plate. I’ve made a few makeshift updates to the flash bracket like the foam grip tape wrapped around the right hand side and the bits of white velcro to make the whole thing a more comfortable to use. While it’s not the most beautiful looking rig, I find it reasonable practical.

The overhead bracket provides a nice place to mount a mic or LED panel and the right hand side of the bracket works out as a nice hand grip with easy thumb access to the record button on the EOS-M.

The rig also leaves the left hand side of the Canon EOS-M open and easy to access. This works fine for the mic input, but you might want to be careful if you’re using a field monitor with the EOS-M because there is nothing protecting the HDMI port.

Rounding things off the beachtek DXA-SLR is mounted below the flash bracket and ends up providing a nice solid base to set everything down on. The whole setup weighs about the same as a 5d mark III with a battery grip and easily breaks down for travel and storage. If you missed it, you can check out a full overview of my EOS-M kit here. It’s a great little camera for the price.
