Turning Your Camera Into a Mini Canon C100 - DSLR Video Shooter

Turning Your Camera Into a Mini Canon C100 - DSLR Video Shooter







What You Need

How to Build a Mini C100

Here are the steps build the modded rig for the GH4. Be sure to watch the video above for more details and instructions.

1. Cage the GH4

Any cage will do. Just make sure it has a flat top and at least two 1/4″ threads in a row for the nato rail.

2. Add a Nato Handle

Attach the nato rail and nato handle. I try to attach mine as far forward on
the cage as possible. This way, when you rotate the handle the weight of
the camera isn’t too far off to one side.

3. Attach Preamp with Bolt on 19mm Rod

This step is pretty simple. Add the 19mm rod onto the cent of the preamp and attach it to the Nato Handle as shown in the video.

4. Add Microphone of Choice (Optional)

A Rode VideoMic Pro, but you could just run an XLR cable to the
preamp. A small shotgun is great for mobile shooting and b-roll capture.
