I tried on two different setups yesterday. The first one was an Alexa and Zeiss Standard Speeds T2.1 lenses. The CG was 4 inches BEHIND the sensor of the camera.
The second setup was a Red Epic and Hawk anamorphics. The CG was now more than 4 inches FORWARD from the sensor. Although length-wise and weight-wise the two setups where pretty similar, on the second case, it was the lens that was sitting on top of the post and not the camera. Panning felt completely different, tilting felt completely different, as if more finesse was required.
At the moment, I didn’t think much of it, but later I realized that as cameras are getting constantly smaller and lighter, they will keep moving further and further behind the gimbal.
It is not a problem per se, but I was wondering if you guys have felt the difference in panning and tilting with the lens sitting on top of the post instead of the camera.
