Eyepiece leveler for the GH2

Recommended Posts

[font="Calibri"][size="3"][color="#000000"]Hello,[/color][/size][/font]
[font="Calibri"][size="3"][color="#000000"]This is my first post to this site. There is a wealth of information here, and hats off to those that contribute. I have been a camera operator and DP since the early 80’s. I have worked on many films, TV shows, and commercials. I am quite impressed with the Lumix GH2, and am in the process of retro-fitting it to my 35mm lenses and accessories. I wanted to share with you an eyepiece leveler rig that I built in my home shop. With longer lenes, I find it essential when operating a camera from a tripod or a dolly. I have more pictures on my website [url="http://www.randytowers.com"]http://www.randytowers.com[/url][/color][/size][/font][img]http://www.eoshd.com/comments/uploads/inline/20565/501ab27e7d61f_GH2_Leveler_WOText.jpg[/img]

Looks a bit much.. What other cool gadgets have you created for the GH2 or in the works of?

-Battery grip?

-any rigs?

-A rig with accessible mounting for Battery charger to be mounted for connection with dc coupler battery would be nice and accessible mounting for Zoom or other external audio capturing device and shotgun mic..

Welcome, Randy. I loved the reel. It's great to have people of your caliber and experience sharing your ideas on these boards.

[i]Thank you for your comments gentlemen. Yes... more gadgets in the works. I'm working on a 12v DC battery with; 7.2v, and 5v taps. The 12v will run the zoom motor control, the 7.2v for the camera, and 5v for a USB accessory power port. I'm tapping 1/4-20 holes all around the rig now for mounted accessories. Here's another picture.[img]http://www.eoshd.com/comments/uploads/inline/20565/501bc1b968084_GH2_rig_1.jpg[/img] [/i]
