cheap birds eye view?
Posted 23 May 2006 - 02:58 PM
Wondering if anyone has any DIY ideas for doing a locked off birds eye view shot. I will be using the Panasonic HVX200 and at this point do not have a tripod with a removable head - but that is not entirely out of the picture. The shot does not have to be that wide, but most certainly has to be locked off.

I'm not sure off the top of my head the best way to fasten lumber to the top of a Mombo-Combo, but there's got to be a dozen ways to rig it. You could use speedrail instead of lumber, but the weight of the camera mount has to be directly below the pipe or else gravity will want to make it spin (even when it''s clamped really well).
But this is just off the top of my head, assuming you have no budget for proper grip gear. I'm sure there are plenty of other ways to do this.

Let us know how your shot turns out, and post an example frame and a pic of your rig if possible.
