    Hi Ted

    I'm so impressed with the rails, follow focus and mattebox combo you've made! They look really professional!

    I've already made a DIY loupe out of some low grade binoculars from Poundland and a Johnson's baby powder tub. Now I'd like to have a go at making the setup you have using your instructions. I was going to start with the rails but the instructions picture is a bit low resolution. Do you have a bigger picture?

    How do you make the baseplate to attach the camera to and how is it attached to the rails?

    Is the tubing for the rails steel or aluminium?

    Sorry for asking too many questions.

    Thanks very much!

    Stuart

    If someone wants to trace the flag pattern just say so and I'll export a jpg and post it.

    I think that part of the joy of DIY is doing the work yourself. It's not that you have to do everything that Teddy made on here, mod it to fit your needs or if you can't find a part make it yourself.

    I've done a *similar* thing to make a petal style lens hood for the wide angle lens on my HDR-FX1. The paint is drying, so once it's all finished I'll post a pic.
