Thanks to Thomas for sending in a very interesting DIY DSLR Rig. The entire rig was built by his father to be super light, super modular, and even adds a few wheels for some dolly style tracking. Everything packs up into a small bag, DIY follow focus included. There's a bit more information and a bunch more photos following the link to his blog. https://www.punto14.net/blog/2010/10/03/say-hallo-to-octopussy%C2%AE/
Hey Ethren, check this out:
That´s a cool DIY FF!
I wanna see someone build a rig out of Legos.
I'm really liking this, especially the wheels on 15mm rails. Wish I was a machinist.
Looks like a cool little invention. I would rock one.
Best quote ever from his website "Thank you again father.. we’re so fucking proud of your fantastic Octopussy®!!!"
I guess it could have a less commercially appealing name.
I could find tons of uses for that. Very cool little gadget.
Octopussy looks nice, but looking at the pictures on the guy's website, I have to admit it doesn't look very usable: looks too short ! And those little wheels...
But it's cute !
