hey yall curious how yall leave your rig on the camera truck. the last three shows ive done totally different ways. ive got the bad from rocksteadi and am very happy with it. it slept on a shelf the last few months whereas before it was on the top of my cart, which i kinda prefer. ACs would like to make a foam bed for it on a truck shelf. im considering a hard case that is slimmer than a 1650 but tougher, like a thermodyne. just wondering if yall have pictures or ways that you prefer. brett.
Hard mounting a gimbal to a vehicle usually results in shake footage due to vibrations from the road. This vibration isolator helps remove those vibrations by suspending the gimbal on bent wire rope assemblies. More info can be found here: http://www.stratus-productions.com/cinema-vibration-dampener
brett.mayfield posted a topic in Batteries/Powerhey yall I have been doing a lot of location shoots with limited power resources. I realize I can grab a genny, but I really dont like burning gallons of gas throughout the day near my gear just to keep batteries fresh, power a laptop, download cards, etc. Typically I will run a laptop off of a Versa battery, plug batteries into the moho, or come up with the typical methods for powering gear throughout the day, but I am considering a few electrical modifications to my 4Runner to make it a more well-rounded tool in my kit. First, are there any power inverters that you would recommend for use in 12v power outlets in a vehicle? I have one (Vec024CA )and have been using it for years, and now it is blowing a fuse in my truck, so I am looking for recommendations based on our profession's/community's needs. Second, I am thinking about installing a second battery into my vehicle, maybe a motorcycle battery, and running it on a constant setting so that the vehicle does not have to be on in order to use the power. Then running wire towards the back of the vehicle and installing a standard wall outlet for powering batteries, laptops, etc, unless a cigarette-outlet style is required. This way I can recharge the battery with a trickle charger overnight, as I do with motorcycles, or maybe there is a way of having the vehicle recharge it. has anyone modified their vehicle to be more power efficient for the use of equipment? I have been reading a lot of posts on T4R.org as well as other 4Runner forums, but I am interested in what other operators have done. brett.
