When you spun yours, was it the base that spun? I uploaded another quick video showing which part is the spinning part. The actual ball head doesn't move much.

Yeah i got it to spin at the base, making sure it was not spinning at the ball/clamp, looks like you're gonna need to RMA that sucker :( yours spins way too easy mine took way more more force to make it spin and i couldn't even spin it that much..

BH just emailed me back letting me know they're supposed to lock as well, so weird that both of them that I got in spin so freely. Hopefully they make the exchange process easy.

Hey guys,

I read everything about doing rig shot with car drifting on it? Do you have some ideas or suggestions how it's done? I tried it, but it's just not working. So please help me before I lose my mind :)

Have a nice day,

Gapi

Drifting car?? You mean an actual person driving it? No man, I've heard some guy doing it and it caused the 7D dangling from the extension pole, He barely catched because the car driver noticed his camera dismounted and stopped.
Now imagine the driver not notice at all, It wouldn't be very nice to see your camera get crushed

Also saw someone say

It's easy, Put the rig on the car, and your camera in the spot you think looks right compositionally.
Set fastish shutter speed (to freeze the action enough but not too fast to freeze the wheel) 1/60th works well.
It helps to have a powerful car here, but if you start the burnout get the driver to jump on the brakes and it should hold a linelocker.
Get your "burnout" shot that you need, keep in mind the direction of the wind, I have used a portable fan to get the look that the smoke it trailing.
Set the camera back to your slow shutter speed, take shot....
Merge the spinning wheel/rear half of car onto your rig shot, you might need to tweak the levels to get the smoke right.

Andrew may remember reading that a few years ago :wink:

I've done this a couple of times. First time was a drift car about ten years ago, on film using a Leica R8 and R 24/2.8 (for a front cover). I also did a burnout car rig shot a couple of years later (also used for another front cover, but of a muscle car mag). Drift or burnout, the principal is the same as the car really only needs to move a small distance. The composition, angle of the wheel etc. may differentiate the shots but the technique is the same.

IMAGE: http://photocornucopia.com/images/Rig%20Shots/r_136_pc_400.jpg

The drift and burnout rig shots that I've done where both 'partial' rig shots. Editing out the rig wasn't really an option with film but the burnout car could have been done as a full car rig shot as it was shot digitally. In any case I did the later shot (the one shown above) as a single frame and I didn't need to combine images as I was able to use additional supports which where not visible in the shot. I'm not sure you could get away with that with a full car rig shot because you would always have quite a bit of vibration. The vibration from a howling engine will often render images too soft so I imagine you'll be shopping images together rather than trying to get them in a single frame.

You can't just leave the rig on a car and let the driver go nuts. You need to be there, support the rig and have the driver move at slow speed and do EXACTLY what you tell them. If you don't trust the driver then don't do it at all.

What is the problem? What's not working?

i tried a burnout style shot a while back with my old emt conduit and guy wired rig. A car headlight lit up the passenger side in an effort to get the smoke to show. Shot is pretty sloppy overall but it was a thrill to watch my 10d bounce an ungodly amount when my buddy let the car out after turning in place. I masked in the wheels where the rotation was best. I'm going to try again, since I trust the guy driving. A good shot would be so cool!!

well done above ^^^ shooting with film! So OG! haha
