My camera rig...

Earlier I was asked about my camera rig and what it comprises. Since I finally caved in and got me a Zacuto Z-Finder (a very very nice device, by the way) I thought I might as well show & tell the other parts of the camera too.

I've modified and/or built a few components of this setup myself (with help from some friends) -- that includes; carbon fiber rails and shoulder rest, CNC tripod mount, 600 luminance LED lights, 12 volt 3500mAh lithium battery packs, and a hacked Century matte-box, including aluminum rails. The Canon lenses that I'm using are EF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM and 17-35mm f/2.8 L UMS, along with a few Nikon primes and a bunch of filters, including Tiffen and Cavision 4x4's. The shotgun microphone (and mixer) is from a small German company called Ambiance, the rail clamps are from RedRock -- and I cram all this (sans the Nikon lenses) into a small Pelican 1510 carry-on case.

Each time I put this piece together for a shoot, I think to myself; life isn't bad after all. Here's how the rig looks assembled with the 70-200 lens, surrounded by some other lenses and stuff: YouTube - Jessica playing with my new Camera Rig...

Na, I like it that way -- washed out and crushed blacks have been something I've always been into ;^)

You let a civilian touch your rig? Priorities man, priorities.

Yea, obviously I'm a leap of faith guy -- if you had seen the previous take, you'd understand that she shortened my life by about five years while almost dropping the entire rig, (you can hear me saying something like "no more screw-ups" when she goes down on her knee at the end of the take).
