It's less than .5" off center from the center of the body point, so any mount with a recessed plate is going to allow for offsetting. you could also forego a QR and simply thumbscrew it to the shell, and drill that hole off center. I don't have a RAWA to measure, but surely the flat portion is wider than 2"?
The centerpoint of the thread is at 1 3/16" so it's close enough to center, it should be a moot issue.

Usable mounting surface on the rawa is about 2 1/2 wide by about 3 3/4 long, so I should be ok.

This will probably clear up how small/ easy this camera is to mount.

between you and Scotty Burns, I'm gonna be so busted with Sony.Laugh
Cam is 2" wide, and with the larger (FP70) battery, it is still shorter than a CX.

FYI, the CX12 is now discontinued at the big box stores.

Thanks, that made it.

Whoa! It looks good. I think that a carbon fiber box is too clumsy for that small camera, so I made a sample of tight neoprene jacket. I'll post some pics when the final version is ready. If someone is interested, I may do few extra jackets. :)

Edit: clove -> jacket ;)

Attached is a pic of the CX100 on a Padlock (cookie composites) next to a 40D.

What is that top plate in Spot's photo? Is it an FTP?

I'm liking that side by side configuration for photo and still...

It looks like it is the wide plate for a FTP, it hangs out over the sides of the FTP about 1/2".

FYI, the CX100 is now in stock at B&H. All flavors. I'm not ready to get one immediately, but I would love to hear any additional field reports.

I bought a couple through this link, because the BH affiliate program puts a coupla coins in a skydiver's pocket.

Talked to Barry Schilben at BH today, they're not in the Jersey warehouse, they're initially drop shipping. Interesting.
FWIW, I bought red bodies.

I've gotta say, as much as I want the MC1 (by the way I thought that was coming out this month?) I think I'm just gonna get the cx100. Probably 1/3 the price and I don't have to deal with that long cable running down the helmet into the jump suit.

Just order the camera(black) with hype eye pro, filter, xtra battery, 16gig memory stick, mim charger, and extra 3 yr warranty. Should be here fri or monday!! Cant wait to get my hands on it.

My poor credit card is gettin a workout between the camera and helmet, but well worth it!

Whew. That's a pricey order. Congrats. Mine is also on the way.

I'm finally making the upgrade from a PC9. And I'm doing it on the hope that Sony's faithful EIS will not crap up during freefall. My fingers are crossed.

Do you have this lens? How does the viewing angle match up to a 1.6 crop factor SLR?

I've been shooting 17mm and a .45 Titanium with great results - but the Titanium is ready to retire.
