Hey folks, I have a shot coming up where I need to start with the camera upside down and then rotate it back to normal. Is there any methods for doing this that I can accomplish cheaply?
I thought about putting two piece of angle bracket on either side of a lazy suzan and mounting to a tripod. will this work or possibly be too shaky?

 

Would love some insight.

 

Thanks!

You could check out a Ronford F7, setting up the camera so that it points out sideways from the head, centrred on the tilt bearing.

Thanks Brian, I think that's a solution that would be far out of my budget!

 

 

I actually managed to rig something up with an additional bowlless tripod head and two angle brackets. I'll post a BTS still when we use it tomorrow!

I saw you said that ronford head was out of the budget but if you need to do that in the future, Cartoni makes a 3rd axis attachment for their Lamba heads that gives you the ability to roll the camera. See here

This is a personal project I wrote this weekend and we are shooting it in the morning at 6am. So $100 is still $100 over budget, and I would have nowhere to source from on a sunday. But definitely good to know for the future!
