  1. Hello. I've been doing some macro stuff with a lightweight camera (a7s ii with cage and a variety of lenses). I've been using the Rhino EVO 24" with the arc. It works decently. My biggest gripe is that for macro shots, you can really see the camera shake and you can't touch the camera at all during its move. I've found that the slider with the arc, then a ballhead, then the camera is too much height between the camera body and the base of the slider. So i'm in the market for something new and looking for something that can take a bit more weight. Anyone have anything they like? Thinking outside of a mirrorless/dslr bubble. It seems like there's a ton out there these days and it's hard to wade through it. thx, Dan
  2. Looking for advice on how to program controlled focus and zoom on a Canon 70D, though open to suggestions on other DSLRs and HD cameras. I want to program the camera to zoom in from a wide shot to a close up very slowly for 15 mins, stay on the close up for a few minutes then zoom back to the wide shot again in 15 mins, remaining always in focus. This is not for a time-lapse, it will be a continuous shot. Is it possible to do this with a DSLR? What kind of equipment would I need? Would love to hear from someone who has done something like this!
  3. Hey all, I'm gearing up to shoot a music video using a Kessler Revolution head as a motion control rig. I'm looking to shoot the band in a large open warehouse that has some windows but I will need to bring in lighting. The finished video will look like a one shot video where the band is performing and the camera pans to the left continuously and each time the band starts to exit frame right they enter frame left, and this happens throughout the video. I have linked a previs video I put together to help explain the concept. My plan is setup the Revolution Head in the center of the warehouse and program it to rotate 360 degrees in 4 minutes and 5 seconds (the length of the song). From here I will shoot a clean plate and shots with the band performing. Each pass that has the band performing I will shift the band to the left in a circular trajectory so I can then layer the shots in post. I'm guessing the post would require some masking but nothing too extreme. My issue is, how will I get the lighting to match and stitch consistently throughout the video. I fear that unless I light the entire space the lighting won't stitch properly. Any information is greatly appreciated.

  6. Hey everybody, I am looking for some advice. I have been working as a freelance cinematographer for about 12 years now and it has been relatively enjoyable. But recently I have come to the realization of what I really want to do. I want to specialize and be a motion control camera op. I have talked to the local moco company here in Montreal but that did not yield much. He was impressed with my home built motion control rig but not much has come from the meeting. So the question is how do you get into that area of the business? Is that portion of the business dying out? Any advice appreciated.
