Nice rig. I can see this really working especially with my DSLR and  Mamiya 7II.
 
The Moments Between || Dual Camera Setup for the Milky Way

Yesterday, Naomi and I spent the entire evening from sunset to sunrise capturing stars and the milky way over The Church of The Good Shepherd. With the approaching new moon and a crystal clear atmosphere, the conditions allowed us to capture some amazing shots! :)  This photo was taken just before sunset as I was locking in my compositions. 

For the past few months I’ve been shooting with 2 cameras simultaneously by attaching a +Really Right Stuff Safari Clamp and BH-30 Ballhead to one of the legs of my TVC-33 Tripod. As a precaution, I also use a thick microfiber cloth to prevent any scratches or damage from cranking down and securing the clamp. It’s incredibly strong and once set up properly, it easily holds a second camera system with absolutely no sag. In this case, you can see it in action with my Fuji X-E2 and 14mm f/2.8 lens, which after crop factor, ends up being approximately 22mm. This is a nice compliment to my Nikon which is usually locked in at 14mm. 

(Shot with the Fuji X-M1 | Handheld | f/2.8 | ISO 200 | and yes, I realize how funny I must have looked taking a photo of two cameras with a third camera. ;)
