I hadn't thought of the steadicam possibilities. Makes sense.The reason I wanted to make this mount is because when running our Steady Cam I found that the focus puller needed to be mobile with the camera. Having the lcd monitor mounted on the steady rig just wasn't practical for us. So I thought that having the monitor hard mounted to the controller itself would be ideal. The great thing about the Red monitor is the video signal and power both are supplied to the unit with just the one cable. We have a 10" cable that works perfect. I just walk along side the camera and focus from there. It works really well. The fact I'm tethered to the camera doesn't bother me at all.
Also a great idea!I think the next thing I'll fabricate is a cable clamp that mounts to the camera itself so just incase the cable gets hung up somewhere it will pull at the clamp and not the sensitive redone Lemo plug.
Good stuff Trevor!
