Bits & Pieces


ONE-LINK-MONITOR MOUNT

Just a basic rig that gets the job done. Can be upgraded to full-on fancy-schmancy at any time.






BARELY BASEPLATE

Get all the functionality of rails in a ridiculously-small package.

Not everyone needs a gigantic rig. If you want a low-profile rails setup that’s strong, light, and very very tiny, the Barely Baseplate is for you. We took the concept of a DSLR baseplate and distilled it down to its minimal core. We shaved away all unnecessary material and figured out how to clamp your camera and your rails with just one clamp. Simple, elegant, functional, not designed to get noticed.

 




1" IRIS RODS

These short 15mm rods allow you to connect DimpleSticks Blocks. We use these in our cage systems ands they make great pivot points when you want to build an adjustable rig. Sold individually.


9-HOLE DS BLOCK

Use this DimpleSticks block to create custom rigs. It has 9 tapered holes on each side to mate with our DimpleSticks Rods. Works well as a connector or as a handle. Machined from 6061 aluminum and anodized black.

The DimpleSticks system lets you create custom rigs from a few simple parts. By combining the blocks with our aluminum rods, you can build all kinds of support rigs for different situations. It's the most flexible system on the market.


5-HOLE DS BLOCK

Use this DimpleSticks block to create custom rigs. It has 5 tapered holes on each side to mate with our DimpleSticks Rods. Machined from 6061 aluminum and anodized black.

The DimpleSticks system lets you create custom rigs from a few simple parts. By combining the blocks with our aluminum rods, you can build all kinds of support rigs for different situations. It's the most flexible system on the market.


BARBELL WEIGHT CLAMP

Affordable Counterweights From Any Sporting Goods Store

Our Barbell Clamp lets you use affordable and readily-available barbell weights to counterweight your rig. This kit is compatible with our DimpleSticks rods (the only rods we sell) and lets you clamp one or two standard barbell weights to the back of your rig. You can get these weights for about $5. Super-handy if you need to travel light, just grab a weight when you get to town. Does not include the weight shown.



TWIRL-BE-GONE-PLATE

Banish camera rotation with Twirl-Be-Gone geometry

While our Barely Baseplate is great for those times when you want the lightest, most compact baseplate available, sometimes you need a little something more. Enter the Twirl-Be-Gone. The Twirl-Be-Gone plate attaches to the top of the Barely Baseplate clamp, giving you a much larger base and two adjustable pins that prevent camera rotation. Not only will the Twirl-Be-Gone banish unwanted rotation, but it will allow you to remove your camera from the baseplate without loosening the rods.

From Barely to Big

If the Barely Baseplate just isn't quite enough for your setup, the Twirl-Be-Gone will change that. This is a perfect cure for loosening follow focus belts or the rotation that can be caused by large lenses.

Does not include the Barely Baseplate rod clamp.

 




WHITE GREASE PENCIL

It's a grease pencil! Use it to mark focus points directly on your follow focus.


SMALL BELT

Small replacement belt for the HONDO Garage Follow Focus. Same size as the standard belt.


FDFF GEAR ADAPTER

Got lenses with gears? Then the Gear Adapter for the 50-Dollar Follow Focus is a great addition. We used to use a plastic gear that we got from another supplier. But now we're making our own all-aluminum follow focus gears. These are also a little bit bigger to give your 50-Dollar Follow Focus more throw.

  • Works with standard cine-pitch lens gears (32-pitch aka 0.8 mod)
  • 52-tooth (1.5" diameter)
  • Made from anodized aluminum

Note: Does not include the lens gear itself. Only the gear attached to the FDFF is included.
