< So I was able to wrangle my Glidecam CamCrane 200 jib arm on an internet cooking show called "Taste Nirvana." We shot in a studio, which gave me the perfect opportunity to utilize the vertical and horizontal moves of the jib arm.
< I mounted my 5DMKII on a Manfrotto ball head, and counter-balanced with about 20+lbs on the opposite end of the jib arm. Very smooth movements, and I was even able to zoom in and out on some shots. I also did a few rack focus shots, but preferred a diagonal zoom shot, ending on the product.
< Mika and Jack from TASTENIRVANA.com. This was my first cooking show, and I was drooling with hunger by the end of each episode. Thanks to Josh Dragotta, Caleb Varnadoe, Ruth Olvido, Kristen Koskella, Josh Steinberg, and Reuben Lim for being a great group of co-workers.
< Vertical move luv. Jib wrangling, as Jack sets up for a Thai food cooking lesson. I really want to add a pan/tilt head to give me much more control.
