I am looking into striping down our Red-One to the bare essentials, mainly because we're going to be backpacking it into remote locations, like forests, etc.
To make it light weight, I'm doing the following:
1- 12" Carbon Fiber top rails (on two Top Mounts)
2 - Top Handle
3 - Camera "directly" mounted to tripod plate (no bottom plate, shoulder mount, or bottom rails).
4 - Red EVF on Articulating Arm (no monitor).
5 - One zoom lens.
6 - Battery Belt Clip (on hip to carry battery)
7 - 640GB Red Drive
8 - Red Drive "mount" ????
I am using the two rails and the two Top Mounts because I don't think the camera could be carried safely with only one Top Mount and the Top Handle. It seems to me that it would put too much strain on just one Top Mount alone. If this is not so, please let me know.
Unfortunately, we cannot afford the SSD set up right now, so we have to use Red Drives.
* What I want to know is if any of you have figured out a cheap, light weight, quick way to attach these hard drives to the camera.
BTW - Is there a drive mount that would attach to an articulating arm? If so, how, and where?
Your advise, suggestions, and recommendations as to what might work, would be greatly appreciated. The website, where I may find this mount would be nice too.
Thanks for your time.
