      Nice setup brooks,

      Do you know the total weight?

      Nice! Pan? Safety strap?

      I like the alignment button on the tilt frame to keep the camera pointed in the right direction. That's a slick idea.

      Are you prototyping in Sintra, with final parts to be made out of aluminum, or is Sintra a material you're likely to be using in the future?

      Is the pan frame a custom part, or is it made from a utility frame?

      Nice design, Brooks. Simple, clean, and effective.

      Got to admit, that's slick.

      Brooks,
      Congratulations!
      The choice of the Sony Nex-5 is a very good choice !
      Your rig with a picavet suspension will be quite light for Kap.

      Sorry, guys -- I've been too busy to check this for far too long. thanks for kind comments!
      I don't remember the weight -- Michael Layefsky has the rig now. It is quite light.
      Pan servo is hidden behind the battery box.
      It's a prototype, but Sintra is the final material. I won't use it for mass-produced rigs -- way too time-consuming. The upper frame is fabricated from a Brooxes Utility Frame.
