Assembly hints

Once you’ve assembled the frame you will need to add the camera and tablet holders. The camera should be placed in the center of the upper bar (Position 5). The tablet holder can be placed on the sides, on top of one of the vertical bars.

You can tighten the camera to the holder using the little red handle.

Once ready place the camera and tablet in their respective holders and connect the camera to the computer using a tether cable. The tether cable should have the appropriate ports to connect both with the camera and tablet.

The piece that protrudes and is located alongside the camera (Piece #1) is designed to protect the camera in case the frame rotates and falls.
