I'm not a fan of the flames. They just don't look real.

I do not have a Rig-Pro rig to do this :)

Looks to me like you don't need one! Great job!

Here's one from the weekend to top it up in my portfolio. Been shooting and rigging too much for publications lately and bumped into my friend who is the owner of the Scuderia last week and he invited me over the weekend to get some shots done.

Here's a Before and After...I do not have a Rig-Pro rig to do this :)

very nice! I like that rigid arm you are using, it looks lighter and longer than a magic arm.

It is very light.
It's a 24" carbon extension bar and without the clamp and the double ball head it weighs less than 100g.
With the clamp and double ball head it's about 950g.

What's the set up on your wire stabilizer? I want to add one to my rig but don't know what all I need.

It's a carbon upright which fits perfectly over the carbon boom. Then just some dyneema wire with two hooks at the end.

I am assuming its a 24 foot length of carbon? Have you considered the difficulty in transporting such a long piece of carbon tubing?

I have a 14 foot carbon rig and it is in 2 foot sections. I also get some flex when the car is moving. How much flex are you getting from the solid piece of carbon tubing that long?

No, no, you've misunderstood.

The boom is 6 meters. So about 19 and a half feet. It's in 4 sections.
The 24" (inch) carbon extension bar I was talking about was the bar which connects the camera to the boom.

Here's a (poor) shot from my mobile from earlier. I was experimenting to see how much overhang is possible and trying to see how much flex there was. The 2 suction cups are spaced less than 1.5m apart so there is 4.5m of overhang here.

Without the stabiliser kit...

I'm afraid I didn't take a picture with this set up, but I'll give it a go tomorrow.

Haha just had to do it. Did a test shoot with the trusty old corolla :P

Glad I did tho, found a huge flaw with the cookin P filter set which gives reflections into the lens.
Would've been disaster for when I'm planning a mk6 gti-shoot in a couple of weeks

Have you tried it with the support above the clamp nearest the middle of the pole? Would that make it more stable?
