Just digging this out of the depths, to ask what handle???

 

 

I only ask, as I find the three finger and thumb grip really uncomfortable and need something BIGGER!  :unsure:

There are extentions to the 4008 grip to level the bottom horizontal for a tripod, underwaterhousing or to have a fixing point for a matte box. Some of these have a nice shape which helps people who don't like the standard thing.

 

Maybe you want something like on this 70-ies Beaulieu mock-up/study-model :)

I suppose it allwos one finger extra.

Ooohhh... that was a very 'SPACE AGE' mock-up!  B)

 

 

I will try a grip extension and see if that helps.

Hello Bill ,

 

My beaulieu 4008 , she is her own just like a french lady , Has her Mood's ,

and need"s alot of TLC ,

 

It take's sometime geting use too  her and way you hold her can be very speical ,

 

anyway found a handle grip from the good old USA for twenty buck / post on top ! took me years to find one there not made by Beaulieu ,just screw in at bottom and can now use your whole hand to hold , 

just take it off when going to airport's ,

'TLC' pretty much equates to spending more on new cells, handle and a full service.

 

 

I'll be down nearly £300 GBP after all that but the camera only cost a little over £100 GBP.

My work colleague Andy has kindly paid for it (he wanted 70fps for a project he wants me to shoot), so I get to keep it after that as part payment for my services. :)

I would imagine a Cinegon Iscorama is quite a pricey piece of kit?

I recall recently watching this one for the 6008-9008 models. - http://www.ebay.at/i...984.m1586.l2649
