Back to Glidetrack for catch-up shots

Categories: Miscellaneous 3 Comments


Back to Glidetrack for a morning of catch-up shots from a photography product shoot to office shots. Glidetrack also produce a light weight jib arm for smaller camcorders and DSLRs called the Carbon Crane and I used it to capture a rather tasty entrance shot.


I used my Sony NX-30 for this shot, its perfect for an impressive tracking crane shot as it produces a 1920 x 1080 50p picture. In my opinion having a camcorder with a large depth of field helps when you are producing this type of shot.


Having a good set of legs helps like the Manfrotto 504HD head and a set of Vinten Posi Loc legs, using a flimsy set of legs leads to wobbly, uncontrolled crane shots.
