    Will one of your raincovers also be there?

    I have it on my list of "Gear to Get" from Element Technica.

    The aluminum battery plate, and 15mm & 19mm speedy v-lock clamps are also on my list.

    The raincover won't be there unfortunately. I'm setting up to take a bunch of photos today though and its on the list. So I'll show lots of photos soon.

    The cheese stick and red raid shock mounts will be available on ET's website very soon. The handheld kit will follow as will the raincover.

    Here are some shots of the new Cheese Stick Handle from Element. This is one of two prototypes. One is here in LA in the shop for people to check out, the other one is at IBC.

    As you can see, it has 1/4-20 and 3/8-16 holes tapped along all four sides. It also has tubular clamps on both ends to accept anything with an outside diameter of 15mm or 19mm. You can insert a rod out over the lens for a lens motor, or insert a quick release spud for your red monitor. And I'm sure there will be others who will use them for all kinds of creative things.

    It comes with two 15mm to 19mm collars. With the collar inserted, the clamps accept 15mm rods or accessories. Remove the collar, and now it accepts 19mm.

    Works with Red 19mm top mounts, or ET 15mm top mounts.

    Some people have expressed an interest in getting some handle risers that raise the handle up enough to get a nice grip when using the cheese plate and to clear the tube mount, but they wanted them to be a little shorter than our current 2'' risers.

    So Element is now shipping 3/4'' risers. They come with stainless steel captive hardware that won't fall out when you remove the handle.

    Finally I have some pictures to show. I know its taken a lot longer than I first anticipated to get them shipping, but they will be soon. I kept finding ways to improve it and make it more user friendly and I wanted to make them available to the first customers.

    As you can see it has:

    Major seems welded
    Waterproof zipper access for CF, batteries, menu, and drives.
    windows for menus
    window for lens controls
    access for follow focus
    access for operator run/stop
    access for EVF/LCD (which will have their own covers)
    Handle access to carry the camera
    extension capability to use long zooms (up to 24-290 optimo)
