More stills of the actual rig and different configurations in a second.

Nice set up. Interesting configuration. You're tall? Looks like it would sit really well on the shoulder with the lower centre of gravity really helping with stability.

That is exactly why it's like that, lol. I'm tall. I actually prefer having it against my chest, but this way I can flop between both, all you have to do is fold the battery/hyperdeck under and push the rods in.

damn. I can see those xlr connections being an issue on people's rigs (mine included), poking out like that. Maybe not on yours though since the camera is lower.

They're not XLR they're 1/4"TRS and I have the same cable which I just resoldered with right angle connectors.

Ei Kholi, that means that your BMCC arrived? The footage you updated was from a lend BMCC, no?

Right angles would be the best thing to use, indeed. That's the only thing that I got with the RM333 for now, don't think it'll be an issue though. However, yeah, I would get right angles later on.

Fabian, I have not received my unit yet. Actually going to hold out for MFT as I think that'll be the version of the camera that suits me the best. 0.95's and PL mount glass really belongs on this thing! I'm borrowing for the time being, shooting my first personal project today.

Oki, yeah I'm waiting the MFT too.
