    Hiya,
    We are considering upgrading to an EFV for wildlife since well everyone seems to use them.
    Any recommendations on how to attach them to the camera. I visited CVP and they had an Arri Top plate and this bracket

    I like that you can move around the EVF but yea it makes the setup pretty big. Red of course also has their own way but you cannot adjust it as much, only rotate I think. We have a Weapon Helium btw. Ops DSMC2 Helium ;)
    Any thoughts would be welcome.

    I have used a bunch, and at least for me, this is the best EVF bracket. It gets the EVF far enough forward for handheld, and far enough back to act like a viewfinder extension.

    Thanks, that looks smaller. How do you attach it to the camera. Need a top plate? We almost never do handheld, but the camera can be low or high.

    1/4-20 bolts on to the top of the camera. Also comes with a rod mount. Several ways to get it on there.
