I just got it with the early bird special, and I don't have a tripod or fluid head for using it.  My current tripod has a Markins Q3t on it, and I don't think that would be appropriate for a crane.  So time to get a new head and tripod.

I need to keep this under $200, and I'm pretty much set on the 717AH for a fluid head

So what should I get for sticks?  Gotta be somewhat light and portable, and the only thing I know of that comes close under $200 are some of the Samson / Quickset tripods.


big predicament here.

I just bought a magic drainpipe from a guy in AZ with a loose grip.

Why?  Well...he doesn't have the end cap because the lens has been on the camera since the day he got it.  The front element has had hoya glass on it since the beginning as well.  Optically, this thing is described as mint.  And if it isn't, I have 30 days to return it. (I'll make sure to send a lens cap)

What do I do?  black Rubber bands?  black or red Gaffers tape?

Any way to fix this?  I was assuming CPS won't handle this type of problem on a lens from the late 80s early 90s.

Hopefully getting a WFPF affiliation soon for the team!  Based out of Traverse City, MI.  Filmed on a 5DmkII, I listed my equipment at the end of the video.  Let me know what you think!

I have already gotten some responses about adding interviews or other parts that will make it more interesting - I'll be doing that with my next video.

Finally Moving

Post your favorite environmental portraits! :D

A bit about the technique - I shot these as panoramas and stitched them together in autopano, sometimes called "bokehramas" or "brenizer method"

Hey everyone I'd like you to share your thoughts on my video, and also if you have any recommendations for better filming.  I shot this on a 5DmkII at 24p and 1/125th seconds.  Does anyone in the community shoot parkour/freerunning? I'd love to see your videos.   Thanks!
