How I put together my run 'n gun rig for my Canon 7D. Parts include;
Zacuto Z-finder 2.5 Pro
Ikan Rail System - cheese plate, 12-inch rods, rod & tripod mount
IndiFOCUSZoom friction follow focus
Manfrotto 394 quick release
Fotomate marco rail (used as an offset)
Cowboy Studio Shoulder Support
Mighty Wonder Cam bracket (for the handle)
I first saw the Cowboy Studio Shoulder support and later, the macro rail idea as an offset, at cheesycam.com/
Also, this video was shot with a tiny Canon TX1.
UPDATE:I thought I’d give an update on how much all the parts cost.
Ikan rail system – $200
Fotomate macro rail – $30
Cowboy Studio – $30
Manfrotto 394 QR – $40 (I already had this prior)
Zacuto VF 2.5X – $293 (from an eBay auction)
Total is $593, but please note the Manfrotto QR, Zacuto VF, and the handle are parts I’ve had for a while before I started the build. Thanks again for watching!
