    I am an AC and fabricator working in NYC. I make some camera AKS that I think the sound department will LOVE!
  1. Mirror and Derek! Thank you both SO MUCH for the kind words and support. Cheers!
  2. Hey Philip! Thanks so so much for your interest! Yes indeedie! On the aluminum Ecto Plates all the holes are threaded. On the 2x4 you've got 26x female threaded 1/4-20 holes (9mm on center "Red" spacing), 4x 1/4" pass-through channels, and one center 3/8-16 hole (with Arri-style anti-rotation pin receivers). On the 3x3 it's a slightly different layout...34x 1/4-20 holes, 2x pass-through channels, and the same center threaded 3/8-16 hole (w/ pin holes). I love the idea of using a nano clamp! It would be totally easy to bolt an Ecto Plate directly to one of those clamps to add functionality. Also keep in mind that on the carbon fiber plates you've got two additional female threaded 1/4-20 holes built into the mounting block. This allows you to place the plate on the end of a clamp or noga arm and open up the kind of options you're talking about. So psyched to hear you're into the designs. Hope to see you're pre order in my inbox soon! best, Jordan
  3. Hello Lovely JWsound community! My name is Jordan Levie and, in addition to being a local NYC camera assistant, I am the owner and operator of backpackrig.com a small upstart camera support accessories company. We started with a backpack rig for handheld shooting, but just this week we've released a new accessory mounting product that I think will be very appealing to the cinema sound department. It's called ECTO PLATE: a simple, super lightweight plate with retractable/removable Arri-style anti-twist pins. Check out all the details here: https://www.backpackrig.com/ectoplate/ AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW! Ecto Plate is available in 2"x4" and 3"x3", and offers an easy way to quickly and cleanly add just a few inches of precious flat mounting space to your build. Perfect for: Timecode boxes Audio Receivers Cinetape Readouts Wireless HD Transmitters Made from carbon fiber and aircraft-grade aluminum, Ecto Plate is lightweight but sturdy. Retractable/removable Arri-style anti-rotation pins allow quick and secure mounting that won't sag or wiggle loose. Just back out the captive pins with a standard allen wrench and Ecto Plate mounts flush on any top handle, cage, or cheese-plate. Ecto Plate CF comes with 3/8-16 (captive) and 1/4-20 mounting screws as well as two female 1/4-20 holes. Bolt your plate directly to the side back or top of the camera when mounting a small accessory box, or get creative and put Ecto Plate on the end of an Noga/isralie/magic arm for a multitude of other uses. Ecto Plate AL also has both 3/8-16 (captive) and 1/4-20 mounting screws plus a bevy of 1/4-20 holes, 3/8-16 center hole (with Arri anti-rotation pin receivers), and several 1/4" pass-through channels. Hard mount directly to the plate or cover with Velcro and attach your AKS that way! Available currently in five different flavors, rest assured there's an Ecto Plate perfect for your application and budget!
