Monitor mount

#1 Post by Radazz » Fri Jul 27, 2018 6:49 pm

No more homemade camera mount, found one made for this series and rock solid.
Seems to work well...
Going to try this setup for a while. Makes composition much easier.

That looks like a practical setup. Nice head too. Is it 100/0, 50/50 and 0/100?

I have the same display -- hoping you can tell me where you found (or made?) the mount to your head.

I turned the base of the monitor backwards, and set it atop the head with a Velcro strap around the post of the monitor base and the camera adapter. Completely non destructive and easily removable.
The second picture shows this if you zoom in and look carefully.

Oh, I found this mount on eBay with a query for Olympus camera adaptor. It’s an after market adaptor, but fits very solid and came with a 0.5x camera snoot that fits most dedicated cameras.

Radazz,

Interesting setup. I like it.
I see you also have a copy of Shaw on your bookshelf. 8-)
I bought mine when it came out, have read it many times and learned a lot!
