Re: field macro light improvement options

I m considering the following setup (pardon my rough drawing!):

Parts:

-- hide signature --

SmallRig Light Cage for A7RIII (2918)

---SmallRig Articulating Rosette Arm 7" (1497) - there's option for 10inch arm, but I dont think I need that long. The arm can be screwed either on the sides of the cage or at the top of the cage. I guess!!

---SmallRig Magic Arm with Cold Shoe (1639)

---twin flash options (x2 MK-R200 or x2 Godox 350s)

This could also work, right? I need a cage for my A7RIII anyways, so why not make use of it and attach the flash units that way. Those arms should be more than capable holding the twin flash setup into place...

In terms of flexibility (to position the flash units) is not ideal if compared to the KX800, but on the other hand, it should be more durable than the KX800

Do you see any parts that I m missing (or that I didn't get the right ones?)

This is waaayy cheaper compared to the "Dual-Arm Setup for Camera Bodies" option here: https://www.tripodhead.com/products/flash-bracket-macro-brackets.cfm and could serve just as well (as Smallrig also make quality items)
