I'm trying to compare different options to power an Alexa Mini. One of the way that I see pretty often it to have 15mm rods going through the bottom MAP-2 and to mount the D-Box in the back of the camera, as shown in the following picture.
However, I've been looking at the Alexa Mini Studio Set which instead uses a RAB-1 + RAB-1 clamp in order to secure the D-Box in the back of the camera, as shown in the following picture.
Because I've never used the RAB-1 set-up, I had a few questions:
- Does the RAB-1 make it difficult to access the C-fast card and SDI ports?
- Does the RAB-1 set-up feel balanced for handheld work?
- Does the RAB-1 set up adds a significant amount of weight?
- Any other pro and cons for each set-up that would be worth sharing?
Thank you in advance for your help.
