I am thinking about getting a Cinevate Atlas 30. Should I get the 35 or the 47 version?
I would like to use it wedding cinematography.
Which one do you recommend?
Thanks!

I was thinking that the 47 would make it harder for me to carry it and use it considering that I will use it during weddings where space may be tight sometimes... What do you think?

I just got an Atlas 10 w/all terrain legs and I think THAT one is heavy. The Atlas 30 in a 47" config would be a beast. I've used a small Kessler Pocket Dolly traveler for weddings and think that you can even get by with that small amount of movement. 35" should be plenty IMHO.

I say go for the 35". 47" is huge and youll probably find it a pain to lug around and then to setup and use.

I ended up getting the 47...hmmm. Let's see how it works out!

Thanks so much for your answer! Yeah, I think you are right. I will have to find a solution how to store and carry around.

Hey
We recently featured a Atlas 30 shooter who found a nice solution for portability. His solution can be seen around 0:41 in the video found here https://vimeo.com/5656​8958 (external link). I hope that helps.

Luke
