    I LOVE this idea - That said I think there is a little more work that can go into this. First of all I love the weight of this arm - it’s very lightweight and adds next to no additional weight to the camera rig itself - I hesitate to pay out the nose for custom parts for any camera because resell on those parts is so poor, hence looking at the SmallRig option. I do have the FS5 baseplate and top cheeseplates and love those. Very very happy. The arm kit however… First of all I’m using the rig with a SmallRig shoulder pad directly under the camera via quick release plate. This balance the camera right over my shoulder. In order to use the arm comfortably, I have to extend it fully wherein there is some flex to the unit with the handle attached. Not a huge concern but it defeats the purpose of being able to use it fully extended, IMO. Rigging this system does not allow for quick reattachment of the FS5 handgrip back to the camera if you need to. You must first remove the rosette from the grip and the rosette from the side of the camera (if attached) and it requires you to use a microscrewdriver to do so (at least on the handgrip) - if you want to leave it as a FS7-ish set up, it’s wonderful. Worst issue is the LANC cable provided - length is perfect however the cable does not rest in the handgrip as does the original Sony cable so the little cover over the port is not re-attachable. I would prefer just a male - female extension cable at this point (like Wooden Camera or Zacuto) which would eliminate the need to remove the smallish cable from the handgrip at all. I love the option of lower cost hardware for these cameras - Some really nice stuff by SmallRig / CoolLCD however sometimes you get what you pay for. Maybe we’ll see an improvement in this kit by V.02?
