Hy guys, I'm new here.

I'd like to buy a Car Rig with the most used setting with 2x Manfrotto MN241 or F1000, 3x Superclamps an 1x Magic Arm.
For the poles i will go for 4x 1,5m (4 feet) cause i will use my 17-55 f2.8 lens.

So the only thing I'm not certain is the GND filter. what are you using for your shots by daylight?
is ND8 enough? or should i go for ND64 or more?
i also have a Circ Pol filter which i can use.

Thanks, I like the high angles, but honestly, on this one, I don't think I picked the right car. In real life I think the E46 M3 is one of the most beautiful, simple cars on the planet, especially with a great wheel/tire set-up, but I have never been able to get a good rig-shot of one. Some cars distort well, probably because they have distorted features, or very curvy lines, like the Exige, but boxy cars don't, so they have to be shot a certain way, and I just haven't found that particular way yet.

nice shot of that M3, distortion indeed kills most of the fun for boxy cars (I own an E30 and a rig, haven't shot a good picture yet...)

I am now using a 40D + 10-22, would a 5D1 + 17-40 be better in terms of distortion due to the "long" focal length?

Great work everyone! Here's a behind the scene of a prof rig shot from MINI JOHN COOPER WORKS GP. The rig used is out of this world but the principle of execution is a good reference as a DIY.

Great link, not much BTS stuff though and the final image looked so Pshopped it makes me wonder why they didn't just CGI it

Anybody know what those 'socks' where on the tubes, they looked well cool
