After publishing the Master Guide to Rigging a Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera
and the Master Guide to Rigging a Nikon D800 or D800E
, I thought it might be a good idea to put together a bigger guide that covers more cameras and situations. How big?
Only about 600 pages for so.
This comprehensive guide outlines a road map on how to plan, assemble and build your own personal camera rig. The camera systems covered in this guide:
- Panasonic GH2/GH3
- Nikon D4/D800E/D800/D600
- Canon 1DX/5D/6D/7D/60D/650D/600D/550D
- Sony A99
- Blackmagic Cinema Camera EF/MTF
- Sony FS100/FS700/F3
- Canon C100/C300
- Red Scarlet/Epic
- Arri Alexa
- Sony F65
It is probably highly ambitious and overreaching, but is there anyone in this forum whose dream isn't? I present it to you, warts and all. Take what you will.
If you find errors and omissions (which I guarantee it has, being such a large body of work), please bring it to my attention. I welcome all feedback.
A new chapter is being published everyday, and as of this post we're one-thirds in. It will hopefully be complete by mid-December. Please use the main blog menu to navigate to new chapters, since I'll only update the menu and navigation links once it's fully complete.
I hope you'll find it useful. Here it is:Comprehensive Guide to Rigging ANY Camera
