5D2, ISO 100, F8.0, 2s, 20mm canon, 5m diy rig,


Nice colors, but a lot of rig bounce! I got a little dizzy after looking at the photo for 2 seconds.

Has been a bit quiet here for a while, time to wipe the cob webs away from your rigs!

Can you talk a little bit about the process of how to do this?
I have a Mavic pro that I would like to try.

You don't use a drone - you use a rig. Usually an aluminum pole, 12-15 feet long attached to the vehicle with suction cups and the camera hung off the end. The car isn't even running. You either push/pull or let gravity slowly roll the car a few feet. With a 5-10 second shutter you get all the blur you need. Then you remove the rig in photoshop.

I am glad I found this thread by looking at some pictures on google. Good thing about this is that this is still an active thread. I am hoping to DIY my own motorcycle rig without having to go through 798 pages, lol

Thanks for the link. I think soon I will be getting one boom from the link you provided to see if I can put together a rig with a bracket/adapter for my bike. If everything works out then I'll purchase additional booms. I already own a Manfrotto Magic Arm so the issue for me should be being creative building a boom bracket. There is no room to put a suction cup on my motorcycle, and I have to figure out where in the bike to install the bracket. I contacted some of the few people that posted motorcycle pictures, still waiting for a reply.

I do a LOT of motorcycle photography.

Anyone have a rig for bikes?

I may be wrong but the rig appears to be a bit too heavy for motorcycles, and the bikes lack room to use suction cups. It's no wonder there aren't many motorcycles rigged.

I've read all 798 pages on this thread, emailed every person that posted motorcycle images. Including everyone I found on Flickr and on the internet. Nada, zilch, nothing, zero response. I thought at least one photographer would share their knowledge, I guess I was wrong. RigPro seems to work great with cars. For bikes, still not so sure.

I purchased a used 3-section RigPro boom on Ebay just to see if I could make it work. Unfortunately the weather is not cooperating in my area, it's been freezing cold. Can't wait to see what kind of images I can produce using a motorcycle rig. Eventually, with my friends creative input I will try to make RigPro work on my bike, or die trying.

If you know anyone who has done it, I'm all ears. btw, I own a Kawasaki Ninja ZX14. Here is a pic of my baby, it is not a featherweight.

Please excuse any mistakes as English is my second language.

Rigging a motorcycle is much more difficult than rigging a car, as you can see. And each person does it differently. But the Rig-Pro rig will work for it, I've got the shots to prove it. Send me a PM on the Rig-Pro page.

I decided I wanted to try this type of photography, so I recently ordered a rig from Andrew at Rig Pro. The final parts showed up this week so I decided to take it for a spin. I was pretty happy with how this came out for a first attempt.
