    Hello All,

    I'm wondering what riser solutions people are using to lift their camera off the baseplate to make room for cine lenses with larger diameters and focus rings. For example I'm trying to get an A7Rii on the M5 with a Loxia that has the Zeiss lensgear cine attachment and I need an extra centimeter of space or so.

    What are people using and what effect will it have on the resonance and tuning of the gimbal?

    I'm using rubber plumbing washers between my A7s and base plate running Loxia - All good.

    Hah, just bought some rubber washers yesterday to try out--looks like it was the right way to go.

    It seems like the proper place to mount the A7 cameras is the very last spot on the MoVI baseplate to get the center of gravity right, doesn't leave much room under the lenses.
