The MICROmount Basic Kit by Matthews Studio Equipment is a light/monitor mount utilizing two of the micro-gripheads and three lengths of 3/8" rod to create a highly flexible mount. This will allow the photographer to get the on-camera light up from the camera body, thus enabling the light to be positioned to either side and creating the more desirable 'dimensional' lighting effect rather than the 'flat' lighting effect. While the basic MICROmounts light/monitor mount is supplied with three 4" rods, the creative photographer can add longer rods to create dramatic and creative lighting effects with the on-camera lighting fixture.
The MICROmounts light/monitor mount will also serve as an on-camera monitor mount. Its flexibility will allow for the monitor placement to be almost anywhere! Add just a few more MICROgrip components and the MICROmount can support an on-camera light and monitor or even two monitors from the same support system.
Note: If your camera is not equipped with a 1/4"-20 female thread to receive the Micro Mount use a Hot Shoe Adapter. To adapt the Micro Mount to the hot shoe adapter remove one of the 1/4-20 Pan Head Screws from one of the two rods and attach to the hot shoe adapter.It will be necessary to heat the rod to release the Lock-Tite material in order to remove the screw.
