Nice work on the go-kart shot, something different!

Here is my most recent shot of a '14 VW GTI.

Yes, 6" is enough, I use one that's 14" I think, but it's expensive. The old one I used was 8". If you're on a budget, get the smaller one. Here's my parts list from Lowes:

- 338238 - vinyl coated 3/32" cable: 20-feet
- 22219 - 3/8" x 8" eye bolt: QTY 1
- 58097 - wing-nut: QTY 1
- 138383 - 10mm wave washer: QTY 1
- 22240 - turnbuckle: QTY 2
- 348307 - chain wire rope: QTY 2
- 348538 - 3/16" ferrule & stop: QTY 1

quick question, do you tighten it by turning the neck of the hooks at the end?

I'm curious, does anyone have the vehicle owner sign something that states the photographer is not responsible for damage? I understand that if the photographer makes a mistake and the rig falls on the car, but what about if paint comes up because it is old/bad?

I have a release I can send you. Ask for it at rigprollc@gmail.com (external link)

Yes, it can be adjusted by both of those, and by the eyelet in the middle. I usually put the eyelet all the way through, adjust the ends, and then pull up on the middle eyelet to tighten the cable as tight as I can, then set the wingnut. Easy cheese.

Hey.
WEX Photographic seems to have the best online price for the F1000's. But I got a slightly better deal from Cameragrip.co.uk when I purchased at the photography show a couple of weeks ago.
It's hard to find anyone who will beat WEX on price, so look at them for the clamps and arm as well.

Andy
