Grip off-set for larger lenses and the BMCC modification

We have found a simple way to offset the grip giving the Lion a little more breathing room.  This spacer can be added to any grip, it comes in 1/2 and 1 inch length and can be installed be the grip owner.  The 1/2" spacer in black walnut with hardware (longer stainless steal #4 machine screws) goes for $25 and the 1" for $35.

This gives you some more room if you are using a larger lens, or the BMCC modification.  With the Lion R2 there is middle hight setting using this tightens up the setup and has the bottom rods set at a much better hight for a tripod plate adaptor.

Lion – R2 in beautiful light and in stock, plus grips and buttons.

Welcome to our workshop we get some beautiful light at the end of the day.

Just finished five bodies and 15 handgrips some  have been spoken for but for once we have stock. Over the next few days I'm going to revamp the sales page to bring it up to speed with how things now stand.

ergocine Lion - R2

Available for sale now, same price as the Lion - R1, but I will need a couple of days to up date the sales page.
We have come out with the next generation of the Lion - R the R2.  The side plates are now 1/4" 6061 aluminum from 1/8" this makes the nose much more robust.  The plate also has another set of hole going from 4 possible hight settings to 6, the cap screws holding the rods mount are full size and we have added a lock washer.  I like these brass washers but I will send out black also with each order, your choice.  The pads have been cleaned up with a folded edge to protect you from the scratchy velcro.

ergocine Lion R2 - 46

 I have made a all natural stain from the fruit of the black walnut tree and we are using it on the inside of the body to darken it.  This should have happen a long time ago but we are now stamping the Lion with model and serial number.

 The cable in the pictures is for the F55 but I did not get a chance to test it their (2) F55 had just left the shop on a two week job.  We see the grip with a stain steel button, hirose 4 pin, and black walnut grip package.
