    Hey everyone,

    as there seems to be some demand we decided to go and produce a first batch.
    Price will be 249,00€ a piece and 400,00€ for the set including scews.

    Please contact me for further information: toni@tillmannbrothers.com

    Website and more products to come. Stay tuned!

    ---
    we are a small film production company based in Munich/Germany and we are using our ARRI Alexa Mini on our MoVI Pro.
    First off: I'm a huge fan of the MoVI Pro! Best handheld stabilizer out there!

    But, when we unboxed our MoVI a while ago we had to realise that the mounting holes on the MAP-1 do not line up with the mounting possibilities of the MoVI mounting brackets.
    The only solution provided from Freefly is a bundle of two mounting brackets and a carbon battery side mount for around 850€.

    So we decided to produce our own adapter plates together with Airtime Unlimited GmbH.
    And after a couple of shoots I must say they work perfectly fine and we thought it might make sense to check wether it makes sense to sell them or not.
    Depending on you guys' feedback we could start production immediately.

    Specs:

    The plates are designed to be lightweight, strong, deliver the Arri quality standard, mount perfectly to the MoVI Pro plates and look nice ;-)

    The upper plate is outfitted with 2x 1/4"-20 threads, the base plate has 2x 3/8" threads for maximum stiffness. They have "Top" and "Base" engravings on each side. They mount to the camera with the original, protected Arri M4 mounting screws.

    You can use the original Freefly screws to mount the MoVI plates to our plates.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Our plates feature the original MAP-1 M4 threads on both sides to mount accessories like the BAP-1.
    We found out, that the BAP-1 is the perfect mount for any Terradek or Paralynx transmitter and works as a counterweight for heavy lenses at the same time. (Pictures were taken before we anodized our prototypes)

    The Plates have the same dimensions as Arri's original MAP-1s but are lighter and feature the elegant curves of the Alexa Mini. Btw: the finish is the exact same anodizing that Arri uses for all their accessories.

    Alright, that's about all I can say about this couple.

    If you think we should go in production you need to convince us and leave a lot of comments or write us a message ;-)
    Our threshold is a minimum order quantity of 50 sets. Price tbd, but a lot cheaper than Freefly's alternative.

    If you are missing any features let us know!

    kind regards
    Toni

    I am very interested in this. I hate it how the Arri plate doesn't line up with the Freefly plate so I only have 1 point to screw in on the top.

    So far we are only checking demand. As soon as we decide to go in production I will release a price.
    Shouldn't be to long, tho.

    Thanks for your interest.
