Hi Everyone, This is my first post on Cinematography.com but here goes... I am DPing a music video where I will need to create the effect of dollying out from the inside of a doll's house in a continuous shot. The camera will start inside one of the rooms and dolly out of the window, all the way out of the house to reveal the doll's house in full, within the frame. The main catch is that the doll's house will be set on fire from the inside out, so I need a lens that can "reach" far enough inside the house and then dolly out on a slider. I was thinking of achieving this effect with the Laowa 24mm f14 probe lens as it is the only optic that I can find which will keep the slider at a fair distance from the camera and be able to fit inside the doll's house. My main concern is that I will be shooting these scenes at dusk, I am worried the lenses aperture will be too restrictive. Yet I know this lens comes with LED lights on the end, so this might help. I can shoot on either the C300 Mkii or the Canon 5D MkIV with the current options available to me. (I am aware of the crop factor on the C300 as well). Would you guys think that this lens would be the correct choice for something like this? Also, what would be your recommendation for a good motorised slider with enough length to dolly out like this? I will get the chance to test next week but wanted to ask the forum first. I was hoping that a 24mm will not need to dolly back too far to see the doll's house in full. Thanks.
Dear Cinematographers Here is a rare opportunity to own a Real Hydraulic camera dolly as seen in many Hollywood Making OF. This camera dolly is a rare one of a kind JL Fisher 10 replica, it mounts a jib that smoothly lifts your camera in the air for stunning Boom Up/Down camera movements. The jib is hydraulic driven. It comes fitted with outdoor wheels and it features three steering modes: forward wheels, back wheels, crab mode as the professional ones. The steering mode is easily handled by a push/pull system on the steering bar, again as the professional ones. It is suitable for Sync Sound production since it runs extremely quiet, it is fitted with an electric pump driven by a common 12V Battery car that stays in a box over the dolly itself. It has also two valves to adjust/limit the Up/Down speed movements. One charge is suitable for about 5/6 up/down movements (depending on speed limits also) The dolly weights about 300Kg, so it is perfectly smooth and stable, perfect for professional use with either light or complex heavy camera set up. This baby comes to you ready to handle your next movie project, it has served me very well over the years but i can't reach to stock it any longer due to new upcoming devices, so time to look for a new house for it. Asking a figure around € 16.000,00# but willing to consider your best offer for this. Shipping all over the world.
