Hey everyone, This is my first real post on this forum so bare with me. I've come here for a few years when I have questions but have always found the answers without needing to make an account. Anyways... Like some of you guys, I bought into the hype around the Aputure 300d about a year ago. I own and operate a lighting rental company here in Phoenix and the promise that this LED could potentially replace some of the smaller HMI's we generally use was enticing. Not long after using the fixture for the first time, a huge design fault became apparent, as I'm sure it became apparent to a lot of others. So I decided to do something about it. After a few sketches on the back of a call sheet and a few hours in Solidworks, I came up with a pretty decent work around. The issue that faces this fixture, as well as a lot of other LED's is the shear amount of junk you end up hanging off the bottom knuckle of a stand. The bracket I designed helps to tidy up the cable management as well as keeps the components close so they can clamp to a stand via a mafer clamp. After getting my first prototype back from the machine shop, I was finally able to release the kickstarter with an effort to pre-sell a decent amount of them, with my goal being what the machine shops minimum order quantity was. We surpassed our goal within the first 48 hours. So I'm sharing the project with you guys to try and broaden our reach. Thanks for checking it out. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thundergrip/thunder-grip-aputure-300d-dimmer-bracket?ref=creat
Hello! I just wanted to stop by to introduce one of my products to the forum. It's called the Intersex Plate. It's shipping now on my website: http://mediablackout.net/product/intersex-plate/ This plate allows you to do several things, including: Attach a field recorder, like the BlackMagic Hyperdeck Shuttle, to an unused battery plate on a Steadicam Attach a Teradek Bolt or Paralinx Tomahawk / Arrow-X to a camera’s unused battery plate when used on a Steadicam or Gimbal (Freefly Movi, DJI Ronin, etc.) allowing builds to stay lower Clamp two Intersex Plates together to secure accessories that have no mounting points, like a Decimator AJA Mini Converter, etc. DITs can mount the Intersex Plate to a VESA 75 compatible stand or arm on their cart as a quick disconnect to allow small to medium sized monitors to mount and unmount easily and quickly Can be use to attach a V-mount and Gold Mount battery plates to iris rods The Intersex Plate can be used for so much more! The plate can also act as a sex-changer for other plates. It has hole patterns for: Gold Mount (male or female) V-Mount V-Wedge (Element Technica) Teradek Bolt Paralinx Tomahawk / Arrow-X VESA 75 9mm On-Center 1/4-20 (Red Spacing) 1″ On-Center 10-32 (Berkey System)
