I just lately constructed this DIY 180 orbit rig from obtainable digital camera equipment. To make pictures like this. You may suppose why not simply use a turntable, properly I don’t just like the look of solely the product spinning whereas the background is static. Whereas transferring the digital camera across the topic offers a way more dynamic look in its entirety.
With this setup, I may even orbit round tiny objects utilizing a macro lens. Like this tiny adapter. However the one limitation is de facto with larger objects and something actually massive turns into very onerous to seize with this setup even with a large angle lens.
Additionally, there isn’t actually that many merchandise out that may do that, but additionally I like that I can break it down and have a compact setup to convey with me.
I name it 180, however in actuality, it could rotate way more than 180 levels, simply not the complete 360 levels, aas the C form design of it blocks it from doing a full rotation. Nevertheless, for me, this isn’t actually a giant situation as in my video I hardly ever want to indicate a full rotation.
Now to the components that I’ve used to construct this setup.
Optionally is the additional fast launch on high to shortly take away the digital camera from the Z Tilt.
The explanation I’m utilizing a Z Tilt as a substitute of a video head is that I solely want the digital camera to tilt and transfer up or right down to get the right framing and the Z tilt offers sufficient flexibility for that.
One other Con is that the pan head isn’t actually constructed to carry excessive weights so distant from its heart and I’d actually restrict this setup to very light-weight cameras and lenses. Which for me isn’t that large of a difficulty, as I’m very pleased with this setup and eventually capable of obtain the pictures that I wished.
Hope you discover this DIY construct fairly attention-grabbing, if you wish to see extra movies like this ensure that to hit the like and subscribe button right here under. And I’ll see you within the subsequent video
