    I've used mainly the BP-A60 for three years now on the C200 without any issues. That photo really does exaggerate how far it sticks out. I use it as a point of contact when shooting cradled,
    it works fine. The mount is rock solid, have never had an issue with breaking the tabs or anything. At least on the C200 and 300 MKII, the BP-A60 is a non-issue.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    Every time I'm tempted to go down the core nano c-98/extra monitor path I keep reminding myself how much I enjoy going with a bare bones set up.

    Thanks guys, loads of great recommendations. With the chargers, between the original one the camera came with and the Kastar one, I should be good for overnight charging. Does anyone know if there is a sun hood available for the monitor the C300III comes with? I think that could be very useful when filming outside.

    The Jason Cases fitted pelicans are really nice to have. Fitted cases take a lot of wear and tear off of the C300s.

    I have the Hoodman HC300 on order. If you wait for 2 days I can tell you more.

    Speaking of essentials, I asked wooden camera about a direct attachment gold mount battery plate, referencing this v-mount plate.

    Their reply was "...we are certainly working on one. We do not have a release date at the moment..."

    As someone who has not yet invested in larger batteries, I think a low footprint, direct gold mount makes the gold mount the front runner again despite stiff competition from the explosion of mini v-locks.

    I know it's easy enough to buy hardware to give a gold mount but I would definitely rather not use rods and go with the smallest set up possible. RED has done so well with this compact philosophy and I think it'd be a shame if we can't take full advantage of the new c-series when in "ball mode".

    If the extension unit is required then I can live with a v-gold adapter because size is more of a given at that point.

    I use the Hoodman H400 on my C200 LCD and it kind of fits although it crops off the edges a tiny bit. But I think the LCD on the C500 MKII/C300 MKIII is a touch larger?

    Aren't the extension/add-on units available in Gold and V?
