Vertical flying ?
Posted 28 December 2010 - 04:32 PM
Concept of vertical video isn't new, I've seen many good examples in advertising, especialy in fashion business. Tilted plasmas, LEDs or some kind of screen makes me think how steady flight would look like...so I have prepared this (in 10 minutes) "rig".
So any thoughts on this ? ( it is too late for shooting something today...maybe tomorrow ?!)

Not wanting to be pedantic but its called shooting in Portrait rather than Vertical.
I did some stuff for the stage show of a well known band where I used Anamorphic (Lomo) onto the 16:9 chip of a RED on its side. Very very long upright strip.

It is unreal how tall the video is. Completely different perspective out of the "same"video ... funny. I've flown just 24mm+5D on it, damn I wish I had a 35mm for this one. 50mm is a utopia but this lens is soooo DOF sensitive...
If you're doing it on the cheap with SLR's really right stuff do a great L-shaped bracket that mounts onto a quick release plate, worth a look for 5D stuff I reckon

Would love to see some of the footage from the 10 minute shot.
By the way, can anyone point to other professional portrait/vertical steadicam shots posted on the web???

Yes. My UltraBright has a rotate function built in... again, the only issue with that is looking at a smaller image which is still about a 5 inches vertical image screen
I THINK that I can rotate my image
I also happened along this bracket called the Ringo Head for ENG style cameras: http://www.spidersup...id=72&Itemid=76
