My cameras and kit

Found 7 results

  1. Hello! I'm a student hoping to get some feedbacks from the community here! Would like to share with you a video I made in Myanmar. I am trying to highlight the happiness within the people despite the rapid development of Myanmar through this video. Hope you like it!
  2. Hi EOSHD people! Which one to use with GH4? MÅVI? BeSteady? Defy? Others? Looks like nothing new came out at NAB 2014… Did someone try it? I'm really interested by BeSteady One: it looks like a very good value for money. (Really hard to find a review: would you write about it Andrew)? Thanks!
  3. Im in need of some advice. I have a full Redrock UltraCage setup. Backplate everything and power distribution system connected to a V-Mount battery. Its heavy to say the least. I bought the Steadicam Merlin and body brace. Which worked with just the dslr, well even with the beginning parts of the ultracage. However with the full ultracage and battery it is far too heavy.   Im in need of a scale for sure, however does anyone have any suggestions for good heavy duty heavy camera stabilizers? Im concerned the Glidecam 4000 doesn't support the weight I need it to support.   Additional accessories on the camera Marshall LCD H4N Zoom Sennheiser boom mic with blimp windscreen   Its all very heavy and most I can find only support 4-10 lbs   Ultracage setup   Ultracage Ultracage backpack and v-mount battery attachment Shoulder support (which I could very well remove without much effort that in itself is heavy) MatteBox (id like to use this however i can remove it)   Id like one that i can just lock onto with a Manfrotto quick release plate whenever I need a steadicam shot and not have to take the whole ultracage apart just to do it.   Thanks in advance.
  4. Next to Bladerunner, my favorite film is Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia.  I take a lot of heat for that with some of my friends but I don't care, it's beautiful and masterful.  Anyway, I watched it for the first time in several years tonight with a friend that had never seen it before.  I went looking for the trailer to show them and found this:     http://vimeo.com/56335284     ...his combination of anamorphic photography with steadicam is a favorite facet of mine.
  5. http://vimeo.com/60661023 Hey there everyone. I'm new to the forum, but a long time lerker : ) Just wanted to share the latest thing I've completed for a really cool whisky distillery here on Vancouver Island. These small cameras are great tools that set us loose to create meaningful work.
  6. The goal here was to use the Sony RX100's Active Image Stabilization + the plugin Lock & Load to get steadicam-like fluid walking shots without too much CMOS jello wobble or digital zooming on the image. You be the judge...   http://vimeo.com/57910477

    OT: Steadicam?

    Hey everyone, I hope I don't get in trouble for this being so off topic but I don't really know where else to ask about this. Maybe someone can at least steer me in the right direction. I've always had a thing for steadicam. To me, it seems like the ultimate dolly/track/ jib arm/etc, camera mover all in one. But as far as I've known, Steadycam systems are prohibitively expensive. So usually you would just rent one on the day of the shoot (hopefully along with an experienced operator). So I was surprised to happen across this on ebay: [url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/Steadicam-Pilot-VLB-Camera-Camcorder-Stabilizer-System-w-IDX-Battery-Charger-/370636714953?_trksid=p3284.m263&_trkparms=algo%3DSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BFICS%252BUFI%26otn%3D21%26pmod%3D330758111150%26ps%3D54#ht_3241wt_1398"]Steadicam pilot[/url], $4,000 for a steady cam seemed really cheap! But then I ran into this: [url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/Magic-FM-arm-vest-kit-Flycam-6000-Steadycam-monitor-for-DSLR-DV-HDV-camera-/170891875135?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27c9f3133f#ht_7577wt_1165"]Magic FM arm[/url], around $1,400!! but the ultimate bargain basement steadicam appears to be this guy: [url="http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-15kg-Load-Camera-Video-Steadycam-Stabilizer-Steadicam-/120965723427?_trksid=p2045573.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D27%26meid%3D1284223392872710226%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D1011%26rk%3D1%26#ht_7587wt_1165"]Laing Hotweel[/url] because unlike the others, It can carry up to 33 lbs. Here's there website: [url="http://www.szlaing.com/en/product/html/?89.html"]www.szlaing.com[/url]. These guys sell the exact same model just with a different name: [url="http://www.wondlan.com/product/260-leopard--carbon-fiber-deluxe-edition--8f95/"]www.wondlan.com[/url]. Even though shipping it expensive, you can find these for even cheaper so the initial cost is still under $1,500. That seems crazy to me when I see people selling sliders or boom arms for that much. As far as I can tell, load bearing seems to be the big dividing factor between them. But that's only what I've been able to gather from the internets. I don't know anyone who has ever used one and I have only ever seen one being used once before and never bothered to ask any questions back then. So now the prospect of owning a steady cam has come into mind. Especially after seeing the John Brawley BMCC footage recently. So I have a few questions: 1.) What do you guys think of these Chinese made stedicams? Are they any good? 2.) Is 33 lb. enough to carry a Red (EVF not included since it will be mounted below)? 3.) If you have to hold it below the yoke with one hand and on the yoke with the other, how do you do follow focus? Thanks for any help you can give me!
