Does anybody else indulge in putting together bits of kit that they will find useful to their photography? I am curious about it, as world-class bodger, so I came to chat to General Equipment about it, thereby avoiding Major Confusion. I have finally got all the bits together, entirely from scavenging from disused kit, to finish my multiuse bodge-bracket. Nothing was actually bought specifically for this. The bits separate and assembled: In use to balance heavy or long lenses centrally over the tripod head ... ... levelled for T/S lens use or simple rack for macro stacking ... ... and finally, as a simple centralized portrait mount, or a calibrated pano mount to adjust for the entrance pupil. It was assembled from a calibrated rack from my Rollei macro-bellows days, two Manfrotto RC2 quick release bases ripped off long-redundant ball heads, two Rollei-days flash brackets, one kept straight and true, and the other most carefully bent using a vice and patience to get precisely the right shape to fit the camera so it has two point of support when in portrait mode, and, finally, two RC2 quick-release plates. My cameras are permanently fitted with RC2 plates. Manfrotto want £670 for their equivalent. Mine cost me zilch, nada, sod-all, ços I had long forgotten what the bits cost me back in the day. So come on guys - I can't be the only brilliant conceptualizer, imaginative designer and skilled engineer massive bodger out there, so lets see all your clever bits of kit you put together yourselves.
