I am trying to figure out a solution to properly rig our EPIC and the RED 18-85 Zoom lens (aka the Potato Canon). We bought this lens (along with the prime set) for our AF100, so we were using the Hot Rod tuner kit PL mount and rod system. With that system the whole works was mounted on the rods and could slide back and forth to get the center of gravity in the right place on the tripod.
I have a few bits and pieces that we got for mounting and rigging the camera, but I can't seem to get a setup that is stable and adjustable. I will post a photo of what I knocked up today with the adapters and rods that I have. I know I need something different, but not sure what. Need to get the center of gravity to the center of the tripod head, which as you well know can't be done with a lens like this and the mount plate way back on the camera.
Here you go, have a larf, and give me some suggestions.
