shooting with it all day, i never had a problem taking the camera +carriage off and setting it on the ground. but it WAS a pain to have to do it every time i moved the rig.
if it doubled the material cost, id say just deal. but for just a few bucks more? would be kinda dumb not to. ; )

But no, it's not for me. I mean, when you know it, you don't let the camera on it if you're not operating it!

decided to forego the keel concept in the interest of size+simplicity.
if someone is going to be that careless with their camera. they'll have bigger issues than this ; )
this is pretty close to how the final device will look. but im going to add 1/4" extended vertical base to the pryamid shapes and rout a groove in the base that same depth to accept it. so it will be the same overall profile as this, just be a bit more rigid - not that it needs it. this baby is STIFF!
and i got rid of the bolts in favor of just gluing the aluminum to the foundation...
