The Bazooka


The Bazooka

My current rig for shooting above life size.

All Canon gear: Xti + 62mm of extension tubes + 100mm macro lens + 500D diopter. Magnification: 2.75x life size.

MR-14EX ring flash (notice that I have it turned so that one ring is on top of the lens and the other is on the bottom).

Novoflex Chest Pod with the neck strap and camera mount removed. Really Right Stuff 25mm ball head mounted to the chest pod. Normally I use it like a gun stock, but I can swing the whole thing down and use it like a miniature monopod if I need to.

After seeing your rig, I decided to try out "The Bazooka". It's brilliant! Got a lot to work on with my composition now, but that rig is really useful.

Cheers

I wonder do you still use chest pod after 3 years of practice? :)

I haven't used the chest pod in a very long time. I just look for a way to brace the camera.
