Canon 7D w/ 100-400 L IS (and 2X converter) and a Canon HV20 mounted on top.

This was my set up back in May when I was in Titusville, FL watching the launch of STS-132. This combo worked great ... turned the video camera on with about 20 seconds to lift off and just let it run as I concentrated on shooting stills with the 7D. All worked well until I had to remove the 7D from the tripod because of the hight the shuttle was at and so fast. Video got a little shaky!

And it was very easy to set up to the same vocal point and it stays that way!

Hmmmmm .... wonder if I could mount the 5DMKII for video on top of the 7D for stills come the next launch? :rolleyes: (never mind!) :lol:

note: I removed the 2X before the launch ... skies were so hazy and the 2X just made it worse

Stop showing that 100-400.... Seriously, im sold already... Every time i see or read things about that lens it makes me feel all fuzzy inside...

My 70-200 F4IS doesnt want to go, but im afraid she'll make way for a 100-400.

I did this too, but your are going to buy a lens based on how it looks? if that is the case dont buy it.

Bahaha hardly.......... But having a nice picture to look at certainly gets the juices flowing dont they.

This thread makes me want to buy lots of things by just looking at them...

It's a JoBu. I went with it because: 1) it's actually built more robust than the Wimberly, 2) it has a locking mechanism for the tilt (great for when walking with lens as it locks it in place), and 3) I like to go against the grain or the norm. It's really a nice piece though.

What's your gimbal and why didn't you go with Whimberley or Manfroto 393?

That's a very interesting setup you have there with the Camcorder mounted on the hotshoe, I imagine that would be great to have for agility tournaments.

How would you call that adapter (sorry, non-native speaker) and are these available in shops or is it DIY?

the Wimberly locks... but it does so by tightening the axis cranks; i carry mine over the shoulder with a 1D and 400 2.8 mounted on it all the time locked up. Does it have a separate mechanical locking mechanism in addition to the dampers?

Even as a native speaker I had to make some guesses :)

A search for "Hot shoe thread adapter" (without quotes) on Google turns up the Rycote 3/8" thread to hotshoe adapter:

http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …_037302_Hot_Sho​e_3_8.html (external link)

This is just the adapter, you will need a ballhead with a 3/8" thread to achieve what he did in that photo.

I added one to my wishlist for the next time I buy stuff from B&H :D

My setup is slightly different. For the days when I'm shooting fireworks, I put the main Canon SLR (5D and whatever yadda yadda) on the ballhead, then I use a Manfrotto Nano Clamp and a small ballhead to clamp a compact camera to one of the legs of the tripod. That way I get very high quality stills from the 5D, and some video from the P&S.

Yes it does. And it's really nice to have that additional insurance when setting up the lens on the gimbal just in case you forget to tighten down on the tilt knob. I usually leave the panning lock a bit loose so it moves with me while carrying it - not stuck in one place.

Here's a picture of it. Click on product images and it's the photo to the far right: http://www.jobu-design.com …/item/2588354/6​465541.htm (external link)

Someone posted this on POTN a number of months ago. I saved the link and one day as i sat and thought of how can I take video AND stills when I go to the shuttle launch.

TADA!!! http://www.adorama.com​/VDMALCDMT.html (external link) This one is adjustable and can be rotated 90 degrees ... awkward, in fact very awkward, but you can shoot in portrait mode and still shoot video. Nice thing, it is very stable when mounted.
