Hi everyone!

 

I have an upcoming shoot where we need to have a 180° rotation (around the lens axis)

It´s a short film with very low budget so expensive options such as Cartoni Lambda Head or Weaver Steadman are not going to be posible

We´re shooting on an Arri SRII with Zeiss Primes T1.3

 

Any thoughts on a low budget solution?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Joaquin

If that doesn't give you some ideas, I don't know what to tell you...

Can you find an inventive way to mount your fluid head in line with the lens axis, with a 90 degree bracket to mount the camera. So the head panning gives you what you need. I remember doing this years ago with a gib arm with a head that could rotate to orient the head mount. But almost anything could work.

 

I someone is handy in the metal shop you can make angle brackets out of aluminum easily.
