Mount a C300 90 degrees

Hi all; Shooting some fashion shots on green screen and the talent will not move around much. To get the most resolution we want to mount the camera sideways and shoot in a vertical frame.

Thoughts? We have a Miller tripod and a 75mm head.

I'd just go with a hardware store L bracket with a center slot cut to fit a 3/8" bolt, some 3/8" washers, bolts and wingnuts, maybe some nylon washers to avoid slippage. Photographic ball heads usually have a sturdy vertical position that would offer an alternative if you could find or retrofit one with a 3/8 bolt

If you need to operate pan/tilt, you'd be better off sourcing a Lambda head and Mitchell plate tripod.

Just the first thoughts that come to mind.
