In terms of adaptability, I'm, I'm sure a lot of you are noticing that there's these two funky little screws in the front of the camera, I'm sorry, the YAGH adapter. The reason we put 'em here is, you know, companies like Zacuto, companies like Hot Rod Camera, they're looking for ways to. Adapt these products for professional shoots. So, we wanted to provide places to put potential mount options. So, you could put a rail system on the front of the camera.
And what you would do is bolt the mount right in through these two quarter twenties, and then you could put rails right from this point. Or, better yet, if you're going to do a PL adapter, anybody who's ever shot PL glass can attest to the fact that lightweight and svelte are not usually the hallmarks of a PL lens. It can put a lot of stress on this mount. So if you made a PL adapter that threaded on, and was longer, you could actually bolt into the PL adapter. Spreading out and distributing its weight so that you're less likely to have it start to bend your mount.
Add to that kind of mount a rail system, and you'd be able to have effectively a PL mount rail system adapter, that you could right, add right to the camera system. And I know that companies right now are working on accessories, specifically for this product, to help make it more adaptable.
