To make a movie you need a truck load of expensive equipment, right? That may have been the scenario 10 years ago, but these days you can work with a lot less for the same results at a fraction of the cost. Here’s how.
The Zacuto Marauder is a lightweight but sturdy handheld DSLR stabilizer rig that folds quickly for easy transport. Its $775 price is a significant investment, but well worth it if you’re a professional shooter on the go.
Rigs come in nearly as many shapes and sizes as cameras and lenses do, and they’re often infinitely connectable, but there are a few basic types of rigs. Each type has a pretty specific purpose, but depending on the style a shooter is going for, there are no real hard and fast rules surrounding a rig.
Follow focus use for DSLR videography opened up new ways for videographers to hone their skills through creative shots, but often at a cost of large cumbersome rail systems. Zacuto releases a new design for the standard follow focus that users will want to take for a ride.
