Tech Note 2/12/16

For those who have used the 9 inch LCD monitors for the NX5 cameras probably noticed how flimsy and frusturating the mounting bracket that came with the monitors can be.  Just arrive are two new mounts (one for each monitor kit) that are a lot more stable and easier to use.  These mounts can be used either on the the cold shoe or be screw mounted to the camera.

Sometimes the parts that come with a kit are not the best and it is just easier all around to spend a little extra money and get the right part for the job.
