cool Kickstarter project - DSLR mounting hub

Hi everyone,

 

I'm posting this because I think it will genuinely be of interest to at least some of you, and I'm really hoping it isn't considered spam, because that is definitely not my intent.

 

I'm a DSLR filmmaker and I developed a cool little widget thing that I'm now making available via Kickstarter. It's called the Multiplate and it stays on your camera all day long, and lets you mount things like a monitor, 15mm rods, follow focus, matte box, handles, etc - without having to switch out to a totally different configuration. Just attach the pieces you need, take off the ones you don't and carry on shooting.

There are only 10 days left on the Kickstarter and we're pretty close to the funding target. Take a look (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1822814480/the-multiplate-the-dslr-filmmakers-essential-mount) and see if it's something you might be interested in helping make a reality.

 

Thanks!

Dammit! $99 packages all gone. I was looking for something exactly like this recently. Well, not exactly like this, but for an elegant base plate solution.

 

My only concern with this design is putting too much weight on rod plugs. I guess it would be difficult to clamp down 15mm sockets through the center of the plate though.
