26Dec iRig PRE DSLR XLR audio adapter mounting mod

I currently use Velcro to mount the iRig pre to my DSLR cage when needed but Dave sent in these handy mounting mod for the hacked iRig Pre XLR (Audio hack guide video here) audio adapter. Velcro isn’t the most secure option and this looks like it could be a decent improvement. Dave sent in this correction: I drilled and […]

24Mar Canon EOS-M Rig

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 […]

19Feb DSLR Camera rig mounting options

Everyone has their own opinion on how things should be mounted on a rig, but there are a few basic bits and pieces you’ll need in order to get started. First, lets answer a very common question. What is the difference between a hot shoe and cold shoe? A “hot shoe” has active electronics attached […]

So here we have 2 relatively low price 1/4 20 to cold shoe ball head adapters. The one on the right will set you back $9.50 while the one on the left will only cost you $5.40 (or as low as $3.38 if you look around). The one on the left took the slow boat […]

12Apr Gopro Hero 3 Aluminum Cage

I’ve already signed up for the Kickstarter Gopro Hero 3 cage, but Redrock Micro’s offering does look pretty nice. They are calling this the “Cobalt Cage” and I had a chance to play around with it for a bit at NAB. The fit and finish looks great and the price isn’t too bad at $99. […]

08Mar Nasty Clamps – First impressions

I posted a little while ago about the Actionpod and a few of you mentioned that it looked very similar to the Nasty Clamp. Until that point I hadn’t heard much about Nasty Clamp, so I thought it might be a good time to give them a try. The Nasty Clamp is a flexible squeeze clamp mounting solution […]

14Jan Flashpoint DSLR Camera Cage

Need a lot of cold shoe mounting points on the cheap? The Flashpoint Camera cage might be something to check out. At $64 this thing has 5 cold shoe mounts on either side, 9 across the top, as well as 2 clamp type cold shoe mounts, and through holes all over the rig. The cage itself […]

04Sep Cheaper Nexus 7 mount option for your DSLR RIG

The RAM mount adapter works as a secure way to mount the Nexus 7 tablet, but by the time you add all of the additional parts the price ends up being around $40. If you don’t need a mounting option that’s as rugged and want to save some money this tablet grip on ebay is only about $11. The get […]

13Aug Nexus 7 mounting bracket for your DSLR rig

After posting that video demonstrating the Nexus 7 tablet as a monitor and controller, the next question was “How do you mount it to a rig?”. After doing some hunting I found the above mounting solution. This basically uses a RAM Mount Tab-Tite Quick Release Tablet Holder with a RAM Mount 1 inch ball adapter to mount the […]

10Apr Boom pole mounting option for your field recorder

If you’re looking for a low profile option that allows you to mount your field recorder directly to a boom pole this could be an easy way to go. Basically it’s just a small clamp from a friction arm combined with the very low price metal quick release plates I posted awhile back. It doesn’t […]
