DIY Inverted Mount for HV30 and DOF Adapter

After finishing my DOF Adapter project, I couldn’t even use the thing because I had nothing to mount it on. So, naturally I had to build a camera mount. It was cheaper than buying the shrigg rig I wanted, but not if you factor in all the time spent designing and constructing it! I enjoy building things that work though, and this thing works and provides solid support for my35mm DOF adapter. Its built with solid oak, a bunch of wood screws, threaded 1/4″ – 20 inserts, and carpenter’s glue. The mattebox is poplar. It is finished with minwax ebony stain followed by their vintage oil finish. If you have any questions about building your own, email me.  Basically it is just Oak, sized to fit the Canon HV30 — The dimensions of the horizontal rails starting from the bottom mounting plate:  All are 2.5″ wide x .5″ thick.  Bottom is 6 1/8″ long, the one above it is 16.5″ long, and the top one is 9 1/8″ long.  The square structure that holds the adapter steady with the 4 screws measures 4 13/16″ on each side.  Each of those parts measures 1.5″ wide by 3/4″ thick. All wood was purchased at a Lowes hardware store, due to the lack of any real lumber yards in my area.  Basically it is just Oak, sized to fit the Canon HV30.
