So here we are. In this quick snap you can see the final (somewhat important) piece of my new cinema rig for filming and video projects is now complete. In case you can’t quite make out the camera in the shot above….
Tadaaaa! Nikon, I’ve been waiting on you a while, but thanks for finally making the camera I wanted/ needed (you were only a couple of years late to the show). The shiny new D800 is now my primary HDSLR camera, relegating the D7000 to b-roll for video work.
Quite a few other new bits of gear in the offing, including a new longer and improved motorised dolly, with a slow motor specifically for time-lapse photography. Will try to post a review about this once I’ve worked out how to assemble the bugger. Fun and games ahead.
