Re: The GH2 just needed

I got a cable accessory from BC Media today.
I wasn't having trouble with the 12 foot boom but did have to watch the starts stops and transitions. BC suggested the cable.

As usual, they were right on the mark. It does stiffen it considerably and takes about 60 seconds longer to set up.

I can't wait until political campaigns really ramp up. I'm really going to be able to look them in the eye.

Re: The GH2 just needed

You are having a "ball" with that new boom...I can tell.
Just don't over do it.....it may give us motion sickness. :>)

Have fun,

Re: The GH2 just needed

Well, mine came in. I'm impressed, its constructed well and you really get a lot for the money. Super fun piece of equipment, though I'm concerned I may intimidate wedding couples a bit too much if I start pulling this out at the ceremony or reception lol

Re: The GH2 just needed

With a little practice and the optional knife assembly....you can help them cut the cake while immortalizing it on DVD...lol

It has other uses also. The clip I posted earlier that I inverted the colors will have the opening credits. Before that, is my opening narration and it will be at night (Simulated) with a searchlight beam.

I've been playing with the fog today and the beam will just be a tight beamed light on the jib...panned across the scene.

This is just a quick daylight test with the fog and a flashlight I was waving around...graded to night looks.

Re: The GH2 just needed

Ah I love the idea of the cake cutting with a nice boom up motion, oh man. Only problem is most of my weddings I operate solo, so I doubt I'll be risking my only shot of the cake being on the end of this crane haha

Time for an assistant.

Re: The GH2 just needed

Got my ProAm 210 model yesterday....well made.

I tried it on an old tripod with a plastic quick release....thats not going to be steady enough for the weight of the crane. I have some Speaker stands made for large music speakers ...real heavy duty stand. I need to find a way to mount the crane to those. I will have to purchase the "bearing dodad"...in order to pan...or come up with another DYI solution or buy the factory made stand.

Jeff

Re: The GH2 just needed

If they are the same speaker stands I have Jeff...they're the same thing as the tripod you buy. You will have to buy the bearing or make one.

My speaker stands are heavy tubing an inch and a half or larger in diameter.

Re: The GH2 just needed

Yes, they're probably the same...mine are Peavey.

I just went ahead and got the stand w/bearing installed. Rather that DYI my speaker stand.

Seems I always screw up something, to make something screwed up. haha
