FRONT BOX for lower end Tripods

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I was wondering whether there are front box mount made for lower end tripod heads (instead of the usual OConnor, etc)?

I understand this more then likely doesn't exist due to the weight capacity of the heads, however thought it would be worth asking. Thanks.

I want to make something that I can hang on the legs of my little Vinten tripod.

 

On smaller stuff, the slightly-variable weight loaded into a box would, I fear, cause issues. But I am very familiar with that desire for a place to put things.

 

I have a "set box" full of useful stuff that tends to sit under the tripod.

As am operator, I don't like front boxes. I usually ask to remove them, as they sometimes interfere with the operation of the camera.

 

Just my little thought of the day...

Personally, as an 1st AC, I've never worked on any film in which we used tripods

without the front box mount. Having said that, the fluid heads have always been

O'Connors or Sacthler 9+9s.

 

If the front box interferes with a shot, it can be removed in only a second. What

I don't keep in the front box stays on my belt or in my set bag.

I know more DPs who complain about front boxes until they realize they can stash their meter in it! : )
