I was wondering about the dolly, that was my first thought. I use a dolly too, I live off of it at receptions. I liked your lighting, my complements, I have a pag 6 with a 10/20/30 watt. I'll have to look at your light, i.e. I need a second light for second cam.


Do you have something like this? http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...l_50_Watt.html

what's the big deal

Yea, I don't think there's anything wrong with this clip, except for bad dancing..hehe..I feel like anything that people do on the dancefloor at a wedding is fair game, especially if they know that someone is filming..

now, it's a different story if you snuck up on some family drama or lewd behaviour and recorded it unbeknownst to them and stuck it in the video, but I'd have no problem putting this particular clip in the final edit...if the bride said it's ok

Steven,
Tht's the Frezzi I use, except that I bought mine with the cable to hook up to the Canon XL goldmount and powered by an AB Dionic 90, mounted on the old mount. I also bought the softbox, which is expensive,but essential. I started using it on my XL2, and now it's on my XLH1. I wouldn't go anywhere without it.

Yeah, I am really thinking of getting a softbox, pag doesn't offer one with the pag 6. So I might be doing something else.

I kept searching in the background to see if Dawg the Bounty Hunter was looking for bail jumpers.

Since this has turned into a "dolly" thread I need to ask you guys that use these things... don't you really stick out when pushing this thing around across the floor?

Maybe I'm too timid or have the wrong idea about it but I just see this thing as potentially distracting.

I use a manfrotto 3198, and it works with the two Bogen tripods I have, The tripod on dolly does stick out a bit, but has several benefits.
1- It looks professional, and people tend to get out of your way (relatives with cell phone p+s cameras and $200 camcorders).
2- You can laeve it stationary for nice steady shots,or
3- If there's space , and if the floor is smooth, you can pull it along and get some nice,. smooth dolly type shots, and tracking shots.
4- It's also nice for interviews if everyone is at tables and you have room to move around.
Some photographers complain, but I'll keep using it because it really helps the footage.
have fun

I have a quickset dolly with big wheels that I got a yard sale for 10 bucks........yep good deal.

As for sticking out, yeah, you do, but if you plan right and move around adjusting to what is going on, it works well. I also will use it in ceremonys, from the back. It's one of the best investments ever.
