Hi Allan,

Welcome to DVInfo. I tried to answer your question in your other post, but the system would not let me.

Anyway, I use a Grizzly Pro system. If you are shooting with SD Sony cameras it works great and even allows you to control exposure. If you are shooting with HD Sony cameras, it will still allow you to pan, tilt, zoom and go auto or manual on focus, but it will not give you exposure contol. What kind of cameras do you use?

The Grizzly system gives me really good camera control. You can see a sample on my website. Go to Wedding Films, Highlight, and the 5th Highlight was shot using the Grizzly Pro system.

Let me know if you have any additional questions about the Grizzly system.

Good Job Mark.

Your website is great.
I use sony vx 2000 cameras right now but plan on upgrading them.
How long does it take to set up and breakdown your system?

Hi Allan,

Thanks. It depends on how long you need to run the cable and how much of the cable you have to tape down. The good thing is that you only use one Cat 5 cable per camera. With the Cat 5 cable you conrol all of the functions of the pan/tilt head, the camera, as well as view the video.

So setup can take as little as 10 minutes or as long as 30+ minutes if you have to run a lot of cable and tape it down in several spots.
