Hi,

Im not sure if this has been posted but it seemed too good to miss. Some website did a music video promo shot with two cameras mounted on one steadicam, both pointing in differnt directions. Strange setup.

Here is the video and then the making of, showing Jim Ball handling this bizarre looking contraption.

with commendations to the operator, I submit this is a terrible idea. It's gimmicky without any gain. The operating had to suffer for no reason at all and as stated in the behind the scenes shoot it took way longer. Yeah it's cool on a gimmick level but realistically that's all it is.

Josh

again commendations to the operator not a slam on your skills at all.

Someone's dry hiring my rig in the next few days to shoot some tracking shots with a custom mount to hold not one, not two but THREE Sony Z1s... not quite sure what the purpose is; I can only assume it's for some insanely-wide projection.

We're doing a test run on Tuesday, I'll post some photos!

We use this set-up for shooting anaglyph 3d Stereoscopic projects. It's 2 JVC HD cameras shooting 2K recording onto hard drives. The left camera is of course the left eye and the right one does the work for the right eye..Right now I can only monitor 1 camera but it's working. The light cameras are easy to handle on my small rig but too small for the other Provid HD rig I have. Users who have a SK will notice I'm not using my SK vest and the monitor has been upgraded to a LCD Marshall.

If anyone is interested in seeing some anaglyph (red and cyan) footage on the web, here is a link to a sample. You will need to be wearing glasses (red and cyan).
