Welcome to Visual Poets! First of all, sorry for the horrendous iphone 4 quality on this one...but both 5d's were in use!
In this post we explore the latest 5D cinema rig held together by a Zacuto double barrel (zacuto.com) and using a teleprompter. The purpose of this rig is to allow a person being interviewed to look directly into the lens and feel as though they are talking to a person. It makes for a much more intimate interview as it puts the speaker looking directly into the viewers eyes.
It includes a Marshall SDI-HD monitor (marshallmonitors.com/), Black-Magic HDMI to SDI converter (blackmagic-design.com), small LCD teleprompter, all powered by a Pro-X battery pac. HUGE thanks again to the guys at Zacuto Rental(Leo and Joe) for all their help in configuration and great ideas! I have rented and tried three competitive systems and this continues to be the best DSLR rig I have used yet!
