Rigging HPX370 to Steel Pipe

Hello All,

I have a shoot coming up inwhich I need to rig an HPX370 to a horizontal lighting grid pipe. It is a standard half inch pipe. My thought is to find some sort of clamp that can then rig into the bottom of my quick release plate. Anybody who has achieved this before I would be greatful, we are trying to mount a camera directly above a piano for a live camera capture.

Terry,

This reminds me of a show I worked on at our campus PBS station in the late 70's. We needed an overhead shot, but it's a little tough to rig a 70's era studio camera from the light grid. We mounted a mirror on the grid and tilted it so that one of the studio cameras could tilt up and get the shot.

I would NOT trust mounting an HPX370 in a vertical position using a quick release plate. I certainly wouldn't do it with some rigged up system. I suggest trying to get a smaller camera such as an HPX250 or 170 for that shot. Otherwise I suggest renting a jib with the proper equipment for that vertical shot.
