[07:48:23 CST(-0600)] <jhung> good morning justin_o. I spoke to Harry at Downtown Camera and he said that the Manfrotto long bars should have come with adapters for 1/4" to 3/8".

[07:50:15 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> jhung: really.. i'll double check.. the arm did come with the adapter

[07:51:20 CST(-0600)] <jhung> fyi justin_o http://www.manfrotto.com/long-plate-with-double-attachment

[07:52:38 CST(-0600)] <jhung> hmmm reading the description, it's hard to know which is meant by "attaches by" and "attachment".

[07:53:57 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> jhung: that site isn't opening for me

[07:54:21 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> jhung: by the way.. the bars come with two larger bolts

[07:55:10 CST(-0600)] <jhung> 2 3/8" bolts per bar? So 4 in total?

[07:55:23 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> but we need to be able to screw the smaller ones from the ball heads to the larger hole on the bar

[07:55:40 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> jhung: yes

[07:55:46 CST(-0600)] <jhung> So the base of the bar is 3/8" female.

[07:55:49 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> well.. six total

[07:55:53 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> yes

[07:57:02 CST(-0600)] <jhung> Ok. I'll get the parts for this. In the meantime you still may be able to use the bars on the manfrotto tripods since you can use the tilting centre column.

[07:57:18 CST(-0600)] <jhung> You just need to aim down at 90-degrees.

[08:00:00 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> jhung: sure i'll get these things setup like that

[08:00:05 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> jhung: setting up the cameras now

[08:00:55 CST(-0600)] <jhung> k

[09:21:01 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> jhung: without the ball head, when i mount the bar to the tripod directly.. it locks perpendicular to the orientation that we'd want..

[09:21:24 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> leaning that in stead of the cameras facing forward, they'd face to the side

[09:23:15 CST(-0600)] <jhung> skype for a sec to show me what you mean justin_o?

[09:23:23 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> sure

[09:38:17 CST(-0600)] <michelled> anastasiac, heidiv: shall we have a Floe planning meeting?

[09:38:27 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> let's

[09:39:28 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> sure

[09:39:41 CST(-0600)] <michelled> heidiv: we'll call you in a few minutes

[09:39:50 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> sounds good

[12:02:50 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> jhung: got the adapters.. i'll add the ball heads on now

[13:01:44 CST(-0600)] <yura> Justin_o: ayt ?
