Hi all, I thought I'd start a new thread for the results of my visit to the UNICOL factory today. I've put up a quick & dirty web page with some pictures & dimensions etc...HERE I'm concentrating on the Gyroloc mounting system as that seems most suitable for home use. The biggest worry we've all had is with the central mounting point on the Panny (actually the tripod mount). The general perception has been that this mounting point isn't strong enough for celing mounting, confirmed by that poor chap on the AVS forum who's PJ fell from the sky! Well, I met the chap at UNICOL who designs the stuff, and he said that currently, the bracket they use for the AE100 is the GK0. Shock horror! This uses the tripod mounting point only!!! After I explained the unfortunate experience above, he said that as of today, the GK0 will not be sold for the AE100! Instead, he will design a proper adapter plate & have it in production by the end of next week. Cool. Now, to answer some specific questions I received from members of this forum... 1. If you want the brackets in any colour other than black, there's an 18% surcharge. They'll actually do any colour you like as they'll do it specially. I saw some white ones of various shades, & the finish is fine. 2. The paint used is epoxy polyester. The chap wasn't sure as he'd never tried, but he his feeling was that most household paints should adhere to it just fine if you want to paint it yourself. 3. As I mention above, they currently have no bracket designed for the AE100, & weren't intending to do one...until I helped them to see the light Overall, I'm pretty impressed with the product & will seriously consider getting a GK1 once the AE100 bracket is available. Just a shame that the extra colours have that surcharge (which amounts to about 30 quid on the GK1). Still, it's a nice solution for those of us who want to be able to remove the pj when it's not in use...a simple twist of the Trilock system & the pj is disconnected.
