Rolling shots
https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=747545

One of the guidelines tends to be 1/10th of a sec per every 10mph. So 70mph means 1/70th. No need to stabilize if you can be tripod still. Of course you can go with a longer shutter time but the longer you go, the harder it is to pull sharp focus.

With all due respect, I think you're in the wrong thread. :)

Nah, I'm in the right forum. I am also able to discuss things. At the core of this is simply deciding whether rigging a car or doing car to car is what is best, taking into consideration all the positives and negatives.

Then again, I'm not trying to sell anything to anyone, if you know what I mean.

What I mean is, these guys are trying to build DIY rigs, so their concerns are elsewhere. But hey, carry on, makes no difference to me either way :).

Thats a lot slower than I guessed and would result in lot of out of focus shots at anything less than 50mph based on those settings

I would not like to put my head, hands or camera near the road it any speed like that. And several of my shots I have had the camera 1-2 inches above the tarmac to get the angle I wanted

I had a look at the rolling shot thread and two things came to mind as I viewed 12 pages -
1. most of the shots seem to be at a similar angle and I guess thats the approx hight of leaning out of a window of teh second car
2. The back grounds aren't very blurred and noticeably mid long distance

There are several cases though where I couldn't get that shot using a rig, bridge shot and inner city to name a couple. At this point the rolling shot wins

The sum total of all this hot air is, if your doing very standard rig shots then maybe you could do it with a rolling shot

If you want drama and real motion blur then there is no substitute for the rig - IMO ;-)a

The following rule (it's more of a guideline) is easy to remember:
Shutter Speed = 1/MPH

How long of a cable do you guys use for pulling? I got a 10 foot cable but looks kinda short, would 20 feet be better?

Well if you look at things that way then I would say about 90% of the rig shots you see can be recreated by car to car. Plus why would I want to do it the simple way? I like to be complicated and have to remove a rig for my shots.;)
