Anyone tried this with a super 8 camera? These units are built for dslr but not sure why they wouldn't work: https://www.ebay.com/itm/252423427444

Should work but pistolgrips make it hard as the optical axis is then way from the baseplate. Best would be to use a Beaulieu 6008 with a leveling block, Leicina Special or Fujica ZC1000. Or a short grip like a Beaulieu 4008 with a leveling block.

Good point I didn't think about the pistol grip. I have a canon 814 which allows it to be folded out of the way which would work, but others I have do have a pistol grip.
