More images of the Pico Dolly with custom slider

There are two Dotline LED lighting panels mounted on either side of the HD-DSLR (in this case the D5100 due to its articulated screen, so I can use the 5″ HDMI monitor on a separate camera). The ends of the slider are equipped with stopper arms to permit smooth termination of sliding shots.

Many thanks to Eric Ortlieb of Classic Video Productions in Aliso Viejo, CA for custom-building this aluminum slider. If you have this type of dolly and want to obtain the slider, please contact him at (949)-362-9737.

, in order to put the mic as close to the athlete or other talent as possible. The corresponding receiver is seen on the hot shoe of the camera with its output directly into the camera- avoiding having to sync the audio file in post. I could also accomplish this with a Sescom -25 dB cable as explained in a prior post, running XLR hifi sound through the Zoom H4N digital audio recorder.

Note the wide to normal, fast zoom lens (17-35mm f/2.8 D), which is what I would ordinarily use as a default for a medium shot.
