It was for sure, and I hope to be able to do it again next year.

Hello everybody, first time, please excuse my English because I'm French (sorry for that lol). I'm a beginner with the Rig-Shot and I need some advice. I made my Rig with 2 Avengers, Manfrotto super clamp, 1.2 inch (3.2cm) section aluminium tube and 16ft (5m) long.
Some pics of it :

Sorry, It's not a Canon, but it's the best forum I find for the Rig-shot.

So, with all of this, I got a problem... I shot with 2 seconds exposure, but my pics are blur, please help lol

If your images are not sharp, that means you have problems with vibration/bounce.

Make sure your rig is stable, even though you have a cable, I'm not so sure about your boom's stability. Pull/push the car, the car should not be running. Use a smooth road surface. Use a trigger or the timer, do not manually press the actual shutter button. Make sure the driver isn't moving around in the car or doing anything that would add vibration or bounce.


Becoming a gear junkie.:rolleyes:

the thickness of your boom might have something to do with it too, it seems a little thin, but you should be able to work around it.

You might also consider taking a pic while the car is not moving to make it as sharp as possible then photoshop it over the blurred pic.

These are all incredible, I admire the ballsyness of mounting your cameras outside of your moving vehicles. I have never tried panning to capture an action shot with blur so I hope you don't mind me asking how fast you guys are usually going when you do these shots? Is there any real benfit to doing this as opposed to having someone drive next to you and shooting out of their window?

it's done as slow as possible, like 1 mph or less, and the engines aren't even on. Depending on the technique, the cars are either rolled down a very small grade, pulled with a cable, or pushed by a third person. as for the danger to the cameras, I'm sure we all take as much care as possible with our gear, if not holding onto a strap the entire time.

A lot of the angles you see are simply impossible to do with a chase car. Plus, speeds would need to be pretty high to get the background blur you see. Hanging out the open door of a chase car doing 50mph holding my DSLR is not something I want to do.
