One of the issues with using a DSLR to shoot video, is that to get really good audio you need a few accessories. Those accessories can get unwieldy at times, so most people get a cage to mount their camera in and their accessories to. I personally don’t like cages, because they don’t allow you to quickly take your camera out of them. Thus, I decided to make a custom cheese plate that would mount to the top of my pre-amp. The cheese plate allows me to use an Arca-Swiss style quick release plate which allows me to access my camera very quickly.
