I'm still a little fuzzy on this last issue completing my camera package. I want to use Arri FF and MB, which only go to 15mm rods. 1 Can you guys check me here. This means I need:
a) the ET arri 15mm dovetail (downside of this is that I'm in NY where the 19mm is standard and would like to keep that my standard)
b) arri adapters for both FF and MB to 19mm (downside: expensive: quote from filmtools came back at $300 for the MB adapter and $600 for the FF adapter. I'm sure Abel would be under this, but it's still a lot.)
c) something like the chrosiel jeep that mounts on 19mm and allows 15mm rods to be mounted. If I needed to keep the 19mm standard for something, I could have two rod sets going at once. (Downside: clunky, seems not as stable for the 15mm rods, adds more weight to an already heavy rig)
I'm currently leaning towards "b", but it's expensive. Is there something I'm missing? Any advice? Thanks!
