Hi everyone, I have been lurking on these forums for a while and thought it was time to write my first post. I love a contentious title so, there ya go :) I picked up a glidecam 4000 and steadicam merlin arm combo/shamozzel a fair while ago and thought using a steadicam would be quite easy. I looks easy when you see some one doing it well. I should have known better, oh well, never underestimate the arrogance of ignorance. So I used it a few times and struggled, eventually I bought the steadicam hand book and got a bit better. Then about a year ago I was asked by a friend to shoot a one shot short film. I thought it would be easy. I was wrong :) Its been tied up with the director since then so thats why its taken me so long to show you guys. So here you go: Password is: Steadicam Feel free to be as critical or give as much or as little feedback as you like :) Wow, it was difficult. I shot on the wee AF100 and prior to this had really shot random stuff moving around with out any purpose. As soon as I needed to think about proper framing and camera operating with a purpose it all became amazingly harder to do. I was really happy with the result in the end but it took a lot of takes to get it to work. We hired a wireless follow focus and shot the film with 4 shots. You can see where the edits are hidden. Since then, I have bought a steadicam Flyer and put a bunch of practice in and finnaly about a year later I feel like I can do alright. I also watched Birdman and thought gad damn! That looked like it was a lot of incredible but hard work. Funny thing is that ages ago I watched the Art of Steadicam video on vimeo and though, "gee whats so amazing about that shot, it looks simple enough" I now see the same shots and I'm in awe at how still and how little notice the move brings to itself because its perfectly timed and exicuted to draw you into the movie. Anyway, the more you know, the more you are aware of how much you don't know. Nat J P.S. Hi every one, I'm Nat, nice to meet you :)
Hi, Not sure how friendly the forum is to non-steadicam-related gear being sold through the Marketplace. I've got these items listed on Cinematography.com and I figured I'd cross-list them here, just in case anyone had any specific interest in them. -- Canon 7D: $1000 I'm selling my Canon 7D Body package. It's in excellent condition with very few actuations. Very few scuffs on the base near the tripod hole, and a small (1/4") rip in the plastic on the top of the eyepiece cushion. Purely cosmetic and does not effect the function of the camera. Otherwise, it's in perfect condition (eyepiece clean, LCD clean and scratch/scuff-free, sensor is clean. It served as a backup to my 5d Mark II, and both were primarily used for video shooting. So, the shutter is very much still fresh! It comes with a Canon LP-E6 battery and a Canon LC-E6 charger and an 8GB Sandisk Extreme III CF card. Also included are the manuals, software, A/V cables, USB cable, and original packaging. -- Panasonic AG-AF100 Kit: $3,300 Included: Panasonic AG-AF100 (http://www.panasonic...eo/ag-af100.asp) Charger AC Adapter Panasonic VW-VBG6 Battery Panasonic CGA-E/625 Battery Manuals Additional: Panasonic 14-140mm f4.0-5.6 Zoom, Autofocus Lens (Like New, Scratch-Free Glass) (http://shop.panasoni...odel/H-VS014140) RedRock LiveLens MFT Canon EOS-MicroFourThirds Mount (to mount and electronically control iris of Canon EF/EFS mount lenses on the AF100) (http://store.redrock...com/livelensmft) Everything in this kit comes entirely in Like New condition. The camera only has 21 hours of use, which can be verified in the menu of the camera. The entire time, it's been kept in a climate-controlled storage unit, inside a Pelican case with padded foam inserts. I need to verify by rummaging through my basement, but I believe I can even include original packaging if it's still down there and you want it. Ha. Price is $3,300 or best offer. I am willing to break apart the 14-140mm lens or the RedRock lens mount from the kit if you don't need/want it, but priority goes to those who would like the kit as a whole. Feel free to message me with any and all questions. -- PM or Email me with questions! I can also send detailed photos if you request them. I'll ship to anywhere, buyer pays shipping/insurance. They're located in Boston, if anyone wants a local pickup.
