View Full Version : indiRAILSPro DSLR
2010 March 17th, 10:43
Anyone use the DSLR version of the indiRailspro? Thoughts? I currently own the indiFocus system so I am leaning towards the DSLR version of the rails.
Any other rail system you'd recommend for the Canon 7D?

Most of the reason these things get considered "DSLR" as opposed to just the usual is a riser plate, right?
Here's what I did: Instead of buying a riser plate, I bought a battery grip, which essentially lifts me 2 inches or so higher than I would be normally. And that functions just fine.
I'm using a RedRock microshoulder mount with a microlink3 adapter and additional 9" rod. So I will just mount the camera to the 2 rods closest to me as opposed to the two centered on the shoulder mount. (I haven't received all of these parts yet). I also do not have the handlebar clamp or 4" and 8" rods... I'm just sticking the handgrips onto the outer two rails, which will be ample distance from one another. With my battery grip, I need no riser. It puts it at exactly eye level.
So if you're looking to convert an existing shoulder/rails system, I would recommend a microlink, a short rod, and a battery grip. I couldn't justify spending the money on a riser plate. I could if that "riser" also housed more power.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have the Shrigg Rig and took it apart and tried to figure out a way to get the mounting of the 7D properly aligned, high enough, and far enough forward so the lens gear aligns with the focus wheel. Hard to explain but I couldn't do it without drilling a new hole for the camera mount. Anyways, I have a cousin who is a machinist and will be visiting him this weekend so maybe we can make the Shrigg work using your suggestions.
I did see the pics of a 7D on a converted Shrigg but they don't show enough details and the guy never responded to my questions.
