C100 issue shoulder rig issue
Hi. I'm really stuck on wondering and am looking for advice. I've had my C100 for a while now. Love the pics.
I bought a shoulder rig and Zacuto evf last week. Shot with it all set up yesterday.
I have to say I'm really bummed with the set up. I need to work fast and I found I just couldn't. It was such an effort to expose, focus and zoom as quick as possible using the rig as i always had to have one hand on the front handles.
I'm really disappointed. It does take the strain off my back but not being able to work as fast is a real issue for me.
I've thought about getting a grip relocator. But then I'm stuck when I want to go back to the tripod and shoot quickly.
And then having to adjust my evf back in a reasonable position when swapping between tripod and rig is impossible on my own.
I'm at a loss as to what I should do. The auto focus upgrade might help slightly with shooting I guess.
I'm interested in what other C100 users do to best get around these problems. Can anyone offer any help?
I'm feeling quite down about the whole thing!
