  1. Gotcha, thanks. I did look at the Stanton zoom controller, I think that would be my preference. They tend to be pretty reliable.
  2. Hey guys, I’ve been on the hunt for a good zoom controller to add to my kit for fujinon and/or canon broadcast lenses. Does anyone have some insight as to what’s out there?
  3. So I recently put an 85mm on my rig and my footage was garbage. I halfway expected that because I haven’t been training with a lens that pushed in to a shot. And I instantly got on the forum to see what people were saying about how often they use 85mm and even up to 130mm lenses. I am now practicing with these shots because I care about getting as good as I can but my question for some of the more seasoned and pro operators is how often do you end up using a lens like these and how fast or slow do you tend to travel with this sort of shot? I would like to imitate and practice these shots for myself.
  4. Thanks Tom that does help for sure. I think the next time I practice I’m going to try to relax more as most of my shots I stiffened up in my hands and my tilt wasn’t something I chose to balance. Also I was supposed to walk super slow to get some shots with the lens and it just wasn’t working.
  5. So I’ve been practicing since April of 2019 and I have tried my techniques with my shot zoomed in but I haven’t mastered close shots yet. When I was using a RED with an 85mm mounted to my steadicam you could see every step I took and the control was damming. How often do Directors ask a steadicam operator to use anything above a 50mm? Also how long has it taken some of you to iron out those ruff spots like seeing steps or lacking control?
