I purchased this recently to mount an Aputure 120d mkII power supply to. The anodized finish is a glossy black, and while I prefer the matte black anodization used by other brands, the anodizing and machining do have a high quality look. The Mini Super Clamp (included) is really where this kit gets negative scores from me. There is area on the back of the plate/cage that has been machined to recess the Mini Super Clamp (also provides anti-rotation) but this locks you into using their clamp if you intend on using the included thumb screw. The combination of this clamp with the Aputure power supply allows the plate to sag pretty significantly, putting additional strain on the clamp. I don't know what the weight of the ELB400/500 batteries are but I imagine they are more than the power supply I am using. I wound up fixing this by using a Manfrotto Super Clamp but I had to scrounge around to find the correct hardware to attach the BL01 plate/cage to this clamp. My rating on this product would improve greatly if the ProMediaGear Mini Super Clamp was excluded from this kit and hardware was included to attach the plate/cage to a standard Super Clamp.
One additional change that would be great to see is having some horizontal options for the standoffs (studs that support the bottom of your gear). This would provide more stability and/or accommodate gear with connections that need to made on the bottom (as is the case with Aputure PS).
It could have been designed in the better useful way, pretty simple way by adding a L plate with arca double dove rail and mounting screw ready to be attached to the gimbal with the pins in the back.
The original way is not a good design just an inspiration or idea but completely not practical specially the clamp , is completely unusable , it falls down as soon as you attach it to the tripod leg!
Please contact me for better ideas or future useful ideas, I can be a good asset to your future development or product improvement!
Absolutely love this bracket as it fits my Elinchrom ELB500 and my Phottix Indra 500 gear very well. Solid built like all other Pro Media Gear products! What's great about this piece is that it is universal for whatever lighting system you have......Profoto, PCP, Quantum (which I still have) or any light needing to hold a battery pack. So if I change systems this bracket will be able to move forward with me.
