Hey everyone, I'm gripping on a shoot in a couple weeks and they need a rig to set the camera (Red MX) in a vertical orientation to get an overhead shot. There isn't money in the budget for a hot head or anything really that would normally accomplish this so we're going to put together a rig for it with speedrail and some mombo stands.

I'm thinking of attaching it to the rods in addition to the baseplate for added support and i'm trying to get the dimensions for the width between the bottom and top rods (width from optical center to optical center of the rods as well as width to the edges of each rod). I also am trying to find the distance between the top and bottom rails but thats going to depend on how exactly they have the camera set up and i can still rig it without knowing that.

wondering if anyone could offer up the dimensions since i can't seem to find them anywhere, except by measuring the camera.
