How is he getting the face so bright when the subject is backlit, without using a reflector or bounce board? Fill with flash?
Yep, its glaring. The editor could have done a split edit; kept McBeath on left of frame, and advanced Ted's footage on right of frame. The end result would have been the same but without the nasty distortion.
A potentially great tool, but it seems that they could have attached a second cable to the other end of the slider and made this a fully motorized system. The panning feature is great, but manually moving the camera on the slider is still a struggle (for me).
Too expensive for me. Hopefully, it will be lighter than the Zacto rig. For now, I'm adding a Lanparte LANC extension arm to my Franken-shoulder-rig and calling it good for less than $550.
This intrigues me, as the Samyang are somewhat less than the Rokinon. Samyang and Rokinon have always been essentially the exact same lenses with different branding. Now that we have Xeen lenses to consider (different division of the company that makes Rokinon and Samyang) I have to wonder if these new lenses from Samyang might differ from the Rokinon DS lenses.
Looks like a very versatile solution.
