Jim - You answered a question that had been festering the back of my mind! Looking at the camera, I figures the only thing keeping it from being somewhat portable (considering it weighs a ton....) is the fact that the rail is capped and the camera can't come off it.

Obviously this can be changed. So, how did you remove the caps and did you replace them with some form of stop or just "live dangerously"?

BTW - I think I am setting myself up for a hernia.....
