Ray Rig – Lightweight Hitch Adapter
The Ray Rig from Ascending Works is a lightweight hitch adapter designed to provide support for a vibration plate and gimbal.
This adapter is ideal for quick use with vehicles that are equipped with a 2″ hitch receiver in either the front or back (or both).
The Ray Rig was conceptualised by filmmaker Chris Ray, and provides a fast and easy way to rig up a vehicle for tracking shots.
Mounting a cinema camera package with a full-size gimbal to a car typically requires a lot of rigging with speed rail or suction cups with safety tethers. The Ray Rig connects to a vehicle hitch and provides a Mitchell mount where you can place a vibration isolator like the Kessler Killshock, ready for your cinema package.
The mount is built from 6061 aluminium and weighs 4.79lbs. It has dimensions of 31″ x 7.25″ and is black anodized for durability.
