October 4, 2012


Tweet

Here’s a simple DIY way to add an HDMI Cable Pinch to one of those Gini Panasonic GH2 Video Cages [Thanks Asa]. You could use this same technique on any of the other cages offered by Gini, and I just noticed that Gini is also offering a specific cage for the Canon 5D Mark III [...]

Spot the Difference – Gini Follow Focus
April 2, 2012


Tweet

Above is a Gini iFocus Follow Focus I use, and have a video review about it (here). One of the shortcomings of this design is that the gear is not reversible, so it could be tricky trying to align it with short lenses, or sometimes you can’t get it far enough on short 15mm rods. [...]

New Gear – P&C 15mm DSLR Rig Swiss Rods
March 19, 2012


Tweet

The great thing about building your own rig is being able to design it specifically for your own needs. Of course most of how we assemble things together are based on what products are available to us. When we’re introduced to new products, it opens up so much more possibilities. Industry standard 15mm rails are [...]

I grabbed one of these little starter rigs to use for a prototype product i’m working on that will be an addition to existing rigs on the market (it will make more sense later).

Latest Gini Follow Focus – iFocus Review
October 25, 2011


Tweet

Here’s a closer look at Gini’s latest Follow Focus a.k.a. ‘iFocus’. Having been a huge fan of the Cinevate Durus design and quality, it was very obvious where Gini was getting inspiration from. I took the chance of ordering this latest FF knowing that it would be good. Especially since it’s a custom designed gearbox [...]

Gini New Follow Focus and Lens Gears?
October 4, 2011


Tweet

Yeah that’s a Gini Follow Focus and of course without the finished anodizing, it looks like a prototype. See something different? Yeah no Huco gearbox. Is Gini making his own metal gears? [Thanks Kenrik]

Also what looks to be in the works is some new metal lens gears. I don’t know about the rest of you, [...]

DIY Portable Counterweight for Portable Jib
September 14, 2011


Tweet

Not a cheap solution since i’m using a rail set and clamps, but something like this can be done using other techniques. It doesn’t take many of these large washers to add up to about 8lbs. and the further you can position the weight, the less you’ll need to counter the weight in the front. [...]

Gini New Follow Focus Review
September 12, 2011


Tweet

A video review from Vimeo member Kenrik March about Gini’s latest Follow Focus system. Gini no doubt makes some incredible equipment, but in this FF he’s relying on what looks like the Huco gearbox (used in many other FF systems). These aren’t the highest end gearboxes, so below is an updated video on approximately how [...]
