Rig pole for sale

estoril wrote in post #15695045 (external link)
Here's some photos of my custom made rig pole that is for sale, fully assembled it's 4.5m long and 5.6Kg and is made up of 3 sections:

1 - overall length 165cm, OD 37.8mm, wall thickness 3.4mm
2 - overall length 147.5cm, OD 50mm, wall thickness 3.5mm
3 - overall length 147.5cm, OD 50mm, wall thickness 3.5mm

it's very stiff and, I think, very light for an ally rig pole.

I am looking for £300 or near offer and collection from Milton Keynes or Abingdon, I can deliver it if you live somewhere in the MK16 to OX14 postcode area for a small charge.

I really don't want to post it unless I have to...

the power lines were an ABSOLUTE ****! I had to add in a power pole to make them look right because my rig covered it up.

Raise the rig, lower the camera. Same camera angle, but rig boom is smaller in frame

Dude, think about what you just wrote. Put your rig down for a bit, and go back to basics; composition, light, focus, location, you've wasted your time without considering them all extremely important.

seriously? the rolling path was about 50 yards long, and I took about 50 images over that length, and picked the one that was the sharpest and best exposed. I liked everything in the background when I chose it to edit, i only realized the power pole was behind the rig when i edited it out and the lines were crooked. I missed one tiny thing in the image

thanks, I was experimenting by trying a ball head attached straight to a super clamp to take the weight of the magic arm off the end of the arm.


btw, has anyone else used a bracing tether to absorb some vibrations from the rig? i've had good luck by disconnecting one end of my camera's strap and pulling up on it just enough to add some tension. with my rig at least it keeps the bounce down quite a bit.

Dude, if you ADD a power pole there's some wire in your head crossed, and I'm telling you this in a friendly way. Power poles destroy a picture 99.999999% of the time (100% on rig-shots), especially when they are growing out of the subject. Drop in a sky and rid yourself of all of them. Trust me on this one...

I see what you are saying, I was fighting a bad location that i could have shot differently and made it better. I'm normally concious of stuff "growing out" of my shots, i guess i was just inattentive during this one. The only reason I added a power pole in was it was already there (and i only realized that AFTER i started editing the image. I've never dropped in a different sky an any of my shots, but I need to try it.
