see, all the rigs ive seen have been carbon fiber...ive tried steel but it doesnt seem to want to support weight after i get so far away from the vehicle and mount the camera...i have to keep my rigs light though, and carbon fiber is way too $$$ for my broke college ass

Have you ever tried shooting from the back of a ute? (pick up I think in the US).

The biggest problem with building a rig strong enough to surport your weight, is attaching it to the vechile.
Theres probobly 150kgs, including operater in the rig above, thats means it needs to be attached to the chassis somewhere strong enough to surport that much weight, suspended that far forward.

The Volvo in that photo has probobly been convernted into a permanant dolly car, and might have plates welded onto the body that the rig can be attached to.


I think the best rig Iv seen was another Volvo in a Brit car magazine.
It was specialy designed by Volvo for use by journalists testing thier cars. The whole boot had been removed, and replaced with a low floor and railings, it ran forward into where the back seat had been.
