    I have a 17-55 that I modified several years ago to use on a Metabone Speedbooster with the BMD Pocket. I use it regularly on the EVA 1 now, in fact I never even thought twice about it, it just...

    I use a Gratical X, which admittedly was pricy, but I have scopes and the ability to access the camera's peaking through SDI. I use it with an $69 SmallRig extension, mounted to a SmallRig rosette on...

    [QUOTE=Seanik;1986762127] I also like that it's not offset like Wooden Camera, etc., rather, you can mount the adapter/grip at the point where the rosette is located.

    You won't be disappointed, I wasn't. BTW, I luckily had a Gratical from a previous camera so I only use the LCD for menus, or occasionally when my partner wants to see the shot. The LCD is nice in...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm thinking about that Hoodman (my old one is very clunky, this looks a little better) and since it's cheap I'll give it a try.

    Yeah the LCD pretty much sucks, but I do like that it's very light weight and powers from the camera - and it's sadly the only way to take advantage of the new peeking feature, which I like a lot but...

    As I wrote several months ago, my hood fell apart on a shoot and I lost one of the side pieces. I've been getting by with black wrap and gaffers tape since I shoot with a Gratical. However, I need...

    You don't need to spend big bucks on accessories. It's extremely easy to buy a piece of 2" aluminum channel at any hardware store and cut it to fit, then drill it to mount on the three 1/4-20 holes...
