Selfmade sun hood
« on: July 09, 2020, 01:41:33 AM »
Hello,

I tried to build a sun hood for my chronos  Its made from Kydex - a acrylic-polyvinyl chloride composite engineered for thermoforming fabrication.
Its fixed at the cameras right side with a 1/4" srew and at the left side with a litte "nose" in the green AUX/IO connector.

Looks super nice!
Btw what is the top plate /  you are using ? is it the:  SmallRig QR VersaFrame Half Cage (Middle) 2127
Like how it gives a little protection for the cables.
Trying to figure out how to rig my soon to arrive 2.1 HD
How are you finding it?

Thank you!

I did several experiments with cages - this on is a Niceyrig https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07G982TPT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 but I changed both plates at 180 degree to get the 15mm rod behind the camera and not in front because it will be difficult to reach the aperture ring.

At this picture you'll see my actual setup

Nice setup!
Thanks for sharing! 
The feelworld monitor is absolut good value for the money!
My setup is going to be very similar to yours.
Is that a samsung T5 SSD on the back?

No - an internal SSD in a Multiport USB3.0 + eSATAp casing - my T5 doesn't work at the multiport connector....
