You are here:

Arago comes with a single camera mounting bracket and 2 mounting plates for equipment such as additional cameras or lights. Mounted equipment must not exceed a total weight of 10kg/22pounds. The size of the equipment must permit free motion of the Tilt and Y elements and not located beyond the horizontal and vertical bounds of the Tilt element.

WARNING
The total weight of the equipment mounted on the tilt-head of Arago should not exceed 10 KG or 22 Pounds. More weight can lead to damaging the product and create hazardous motion on the Y axis.

1. Mount L bracket

Mount the provided L bracket onto the bottom camera mount thread. Make sure to insert the SD card and battery/battery adapter prior to mounting the bracket.

2. Mount camera

Mount the camera in either landscape or portrait orientation to the base plate and tighten the bracket in place by rotating the large knob clockwise. Make sure that the L bracket is fully inserted into the base plate and sits tightly. Evaluate the sturdiness of the connection before releasing the camera.

3. Orient camera

Make sure the camera is pointing straight forward. Use the small knob of the base plate to allow camera panning for forward-orientation. Release the knob by rotating it counterclockwise and when correct orientation is achieved, tighten it by rotating clockwise.

4. Connect cables

Connect the USB and Trigger cables between the camera and the port panel behind the Tilt head element. The order or placement of ports doesn’t matter at this point. While the trigger cable is necessary for triggering capture on the camera, the USB cable is optional and is used for image transfer and camera tethering control.
