Camera Mounting Plate,tripod Mounting Plate for Ro&hellip by SmallRig
1.0 out of 5 stars Very Unhappy., 19 April 2014
First of all I must say the build quality of all SMALLRIG products is exceptional! Very strong and durable.

However, this product is utterly terrible. If they would only call it a tripod mounting plate I would give it 5 stars. However they say it's a ''camera mounting plate''. You can't mount a camera or quick release plate on top of this. This is only made to put underneath your 15mm rail system to attach it to a tripod. But to mount a camera on top, forget it! The standard camera screws are too short as the this plate is very thick. You can try using longer screws but the camera does not stay on the plate. Very dangerous if you have an expensive camera on top.

Filmmaker's Handbook 2013 Edition, The by Steven Ascher
Very informative for someone who's passionate about film.making, this book contains EVERYTHING from sound to pre-production to whatever you can think of.

BE AWARE! Some of the content may be getting a bit outdated such as the actual 'film' parts, but it's always good to know about the non-digital era. It's like saying we shouldn't watch citizen kane or casablanca as they're old and we should watch Gravity. No that's not right, therefore I'm not rating this book down for that.

Would recommend this!
Koolertron New Follow Focus Gear Ring Belt Lens 15&hellip by Koolertron
Don't expect this to be an amazing smooth follow focus, this is not a red-rock product or something seeing that you a pay a fraction of the price that you would pay for a high end one, however, for the price it does a great job, I like the fact that it is very adjustable both vertically and horizontally, (My lens is a bit higher due to many accesories such as viewfinders and QR plates therefore I needed my follow focus to be higher up and it worked great).

The ring belt it comes with is not amazing, but gets the job done.

However, when starting to turn it jerks a bit, this cant be seen in the video but it seems a bit annoying I think!

Overall, I'm pleased.
