Hi Espen,

I've tried a couple of ways, my initial idea was to put it behind the camera. I did this using the XIT404 tray. It worked and balanced out the camera.

However I ended up always wanting to look at the screen on the camera as I'm not sending the OSD via HDMI and so wanted to check exposure etc. The cameras screen is a bit small for normal control and you have to hold the camera up in front of you.

So I've gone with it on top, but slightly in front. But I've made the camera precisely neutral so it's balanced and doesnt sink or float. As shown below:

Hope that helps

PLA is corn based? Or something? I'm using ABS. No problems.

In Topic: magic filters?

19 June 2016 - 07:32 AM

I agree that the instant fix 'wow' of filters is really useful and a great way for beginners to get great results instantly, but depending on the quality of the footage and the recording format. You can use many color correcting tools to bring the blue channel down and then do any additional global corrections and you'll end up in the same place - without the loss of 1 stop of light and if videoing an important one for me, no red/pink cast if you accidentally film in the direction of the sun.

Personally I would love to keep using filters, saves lots of time, but at this time there isn't any flippable internal filter holders for DSLR/Mirrorless ports like you get on Gates etc. so constraining myself to ambient lighting isn't desirable - as I'm using domes / wet lenses.
