600mm Lens Bracket

2016 • Posted by Kai @ 5:01 PM

I have been using the self-made lens support bracket for years. Actually everything works pretty well and it does strengthen the stability of my lens and tripod combination. However, once in a while I would want to rotate the lens and shoot vertically, so I decided to grab this toy when I find it on other photo forums and Youtube.

A friend of mine bought and shipped this to me from Taiwan about a year ago, and I just installed it over the long weekend. So here is the process:

1. The last peek of my beloved self-made lens bracket.

2. Closeup

3. New bracket system, included a low profile replacement lens foot.

4. Demounted the original bracket and lens foot.

5. Install the new lens foot.

6. Front bracket installed, the ring has three little wheels in it so it’s rotatable.

7. Rear bracket to hold the camera.

8. Camera mounting plate added.

9. Camera mounted.

10. That’s right, it’s rotatable.

Now I can’t wait to go out to give it a shot.
