Some interesting and fun shots, which I think is what this forum is mostly about, so good marks there.
I would have edited it very differently, though.

Still, your camera, your shots, your rig(s) and the model are all tops.

Nice footage. (And I liked the editing.)

Nice footage Derek. How are you able to estimate focusing distances when using the 5D MKII on the Merlin? Just set it and forget it or how do you pull focus?

Kudos to you for getting such a variety of shots of a single subject. Very nicely done, smooth camera/heli work and follow-focus. I got tired just watching that runner...how many miles did you make her go?

Had a 600 mph world land speed record car blasted by her in the last scene, it would have been classic. :)

Set it and forget it. The crux was keep the wind from blowing it around too much.

Very nice indeed. Care to share your Merlin setup? looks like you've got it really well balanced.

This was my second day with it. It definitely takes practice, and I could have used more this day.

Derek, impressive. I've had my Merlin for months and I would still struggle to get results like yours while running, are you using an arm and vest too?

No vest. I wasn't running, I was leaning out of a Tahoe.

Ah, that explains it. The good old Tahoe, I spent the whole Iraq war driving round in the desert in a rental Tahoe, brings back memories!

Derek,

The video wouldn't play for me on vimeo...very interested to see it. Could you give us some specs on your remote helicam? Sounds pretty cool.

Thanks,
Chad
