This was at a local auction house so I didn't have to pay $30 shipping. I've tried to reseach the company to no avail. Anyone know anything about it?
I can't wait to build my crane. :D

Good Lord! Of course it's worth $20 bucks. That looks like a little O'Connor fluid head on there. Plenty good enough to hold a DV camera. Good luck on the crane!

Quick-release adaptor?

I stumbled across a Bogen 3126 head. It's surprisingly smooth, but lacks a quick-release plate. My question is...Is there such thing as a quick-release adaptor I could attach to the head?

Many choices...

The inexpensive one : Bogen 3299 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=149686&is=REG

A better one: Bogen 3273 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...ku=5566&is=REG

You could also consider the Manfrotto 577 adapter (but pricier):

FS-4 v. DSR-11

for the price of an FS-4, i can avoid the $1684 purchase price (from B&H) of a deck altogether. or can i?

for those of you working with the FS-4, does this logic make any sense? do you use it enough and is it flexible enough to eliminate the deck.

i shoot a lot of nature doc footage and outdoor adrenaline sports (climbers, kayakers, skiers runners, etc) with a GL2 and try to travel fairly fast and light--is it light enough and handy enough for this type of usage?

EFP demo clip?

Chaz (pardon the familiarity) in particular, I remember downloading a clip a year or so ago, I think it was Ted and Jerry demonstrating the EFP, it was only a quick clip, the start section of the tape. I’ve had a quick look through the board with no luck; can anyone point me in the right direction…anyone know what I’m rambling on about…?

Just thought I’d do a bit more research before I go ahead and take the plunge buying my own rig.

Cheers,

Glidecam 2000 Battery Charger

We are missing the charger for the Marshall Monitor from our Glidecam. The specs state 12v DC, 500ma. We have a variety of other chargers and are wondering if any others will work.

Any thoughts?

12V 500ma is a generic specification.
That means there is a converter somewhere in your monitor, charging the batteries. If you provide 12V , at least 500mA with another power supply, there is no reason to have problems.

Smith Victor "Propod"...you get what you pay for?

I was looking for a tripod to handle my 19-21 lb setup. I wanted a fluid head.

I was originally looking at a Manfrotto/Bogen 516 Pro head and 3246 legs for $706.95 at bhphoto. I believe this was the least expensive M/B setup that handles 20+lbs and hit 70+ inches without the column.

Then I saw something I couldn't believe...a Smith Victor Propod V Aluminum 2-stage Tripod with Pro-5 2-way fluid head that could support 25lbs...$188.95.


I compared the specs. They are very comparable. The SV actually does a +/-90 degree tilt which I needed for a special effect in one shot (the M/B does +60/-90).

The biggest difference I see is that the SV weighs in at 9 lbs where the M/B is 13.6 lbs...that might be telling. Also, I've never seen SV before and I have had a chance to play around with M/B fluid heads.

Does anyone know anything about these SV "propods?"

The link is:

The link for the M/B is:

Thanks for any input.

Kelly, my experience has shown that you get what you pay for. Depending what you use these support systems for, you will probably find them lacking for doing much in the way of panning and tilting while zoomed in greatly.

New Pag Orbiter

I curently own a DvRig Pro, and love it.

The other day I was looking for some information on the Paglight C6 lighting system and went to their website, when I got there I saw an add for their new stableizer system, the Orbiter.
I don't know about you, but it looks alot like the DvRig to me, what do you all think?
Any feedback or comments on it?

Do a search online for green screen or chroma key and you'll find more than you know what to do with.
