NEX-5 Rig, Front, w/4-AAA box

One of several setups with the ultralight NEX-5 rig. Tilt frame made of Sintra, an expanded PVC material.

    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.

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

    I have the same questions as Tom Tom Benedict

    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.
