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 [...]

02Apr Spot the Difference – Gini Follow Focus


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. [...]

19Mar New Gear – P&C 15mm DSLR Rig Swiss Rods


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 [...]

25Oct Latest Gini Follow Focus – iFocus Review


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.

04Oct Gini New Follow Focus and Lens Gears?


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, [...]

14Sep DIY Portable Counterweight for Portable Jib


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. [...]

12Sep Gini New Follow Focus Review


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 [...]

18Jun Budget DSLR Follow Focus – More


Tweet
Remember this Budget DSLR Follow Focus creating a bit of hype? http://cheesycam.com/budget-dslr-follow-focus/. The seller moved quite a bit of these things, raised the prices twice (or more) already, and now lists that any new orders would ship at a later date.

09Dec Gini Rig’s got a few new Pads


Tweet

The all too basic shoulder pad on most rigs are not as comfortable as they might appear. The firm silicone pads give wide placement of the rig to the shoulder, but does nothing for comfort. To add extra stability, relieve weight from the hands, and added comfort here are some alternative budget shoulder mounts. First [...]
