Now this might seem strange, but in order to have the smallest Aaton XTR body possible for travel I'm thinking about unmounting the lengthy video tap bar. But I assume that would leave me with a hole in the body that I would somehow need to cover? I currently don't have access to my XTR body (I'm abroad) and just came up with this thought.

 

Anyone able to chime in on this? Also, I don't really need the video tap atm, therefore unmounting it would not be a big loss.

 

thanks!

I forgot, does your camera have the tap on the side or the top?

Ohh that's easy. Just unscrew it and you can make a little cover for that assembly and put a piece of black camera tape to cover it. That should work fine.

P.S. let me know once you get a chance to measure the dimensions of the mag. I'd happily name my setup after you ;p
