Hi, 5 months ago our company bought Zhiyun crane plus gimbal. While we edited our footage we discovered that there is a problem in gimbal stabilisation. Though the gimbal was 100%balanced in all positions, it still appeared stabilization problem to every single shot. https://vimeo.com/295716239/241bf0e082 This a video sample with the Crane plus and a Sony A7III. I tried to sent email to the company but none of the emails in their site works and in the tech support on Facebook the answer was that everything is ok.
I do modifications on big to medium lens, the last one modified Moller 63/2x minimum fd was 1,8m (6ft) until couple of days ago, when modified even further, haven't tested it yet. The price of modification for lens is 250-500â‚¬. Optional rehousings available. Waiting time 30-60 days. Servicing starts at 85â‚¬, waiting time 7-14 days. You pay shipping charges both ways.
I'm looking to learn how to fully clean/repair lenses more than simply puffing with a blower and wiping with a cloth... I have a bunch of old P entax SMC lenses that I don't mind pulling apart (two of them have a little fungus) and want to use them to practice repairing old manual primes. Unfortunately I can't find much online, nor any books on the topic. I have even tried to find information on specific lenses (Pentax, Nikkor etc.) but still nothing detailed. So essentially I am asking if anyone knows of books/websites etc. here I might be able to learn anything related to pulling lenses apart, cleaning/repairing them, and putting them back together again (all stages being vital!). I understand that this is as much a science as a skill, with precision and math being vital... but surely the talented folks repairing lenses haven't all learnt through apprenticeship? I've been pulling apart and re-assembling things since I was a kid (to various degrees of success), and sooner or later I'm just going to dive in... so please educate me before I make a mess!
