Dynamic Perception stage zero dolly - Page 2

post #11 of 25
the first test video reminds me of claymation. I have Tool - Sober stuck in my head now. I hope you're happy.

(Cool stuff though!)

i wish i had the spare time to even do a timelapse

Yea it is very time consuming but rewarding too. The good thing is that once its running theres plenty of time to kick back and have a beer;)

i get enough weird looks when i just setup my tripod for a shot, i could only imagine the looks you get for that

Definitely get some weird looks, and lots of "what the hell is that thing?" Gotta love that though

Haha I don't quite get the connection bet enjoy! I guess some people have set the dolly up to interact with Dragon Stopmotion (pc program) to film animations, which would be pretty cool. So the dolly waits for your input to make the next move and shot, allowing you to make whatever changes you need to the subject. Very interesting.

Thanks all

Hi Lifeskills:
I'm in Portland, OR too. Can you tell me where you got the rail and, if possible the specific product or part number?

Thanks in advance

Hey Andy,

it is a 72" #1030 extrusion by 80/20. I actually found it on amazon.com because it was cheaper, and I fixed the OP with a link.

The 80/20 framing is good stuff, are you looking for time lapse or something else? They make all sorts of sizes

Thanks for the Amazon link in the OP, Lifeskills.
I'm just planning a trip to Eastern Oregon and thought it would be nice to do some timelapse sunrise/set and night sky sequences -- then I saw your videos and the Stage Zero dolly, so I was thinking about adding some motion.

I was also wondering about joining more than one six foot length -- is there some fitting you can use to make up longer lengths? I was also wondering if you can get the #1030 extrusion in arcs to move around objects (like plants)?

Regards
Andy

No problem. I haven't attached any extra lengths yet, but based on the design of the #1030 extrusion, It shouldn't be too hard to make some sort of plate to attach the two together. My goal is to have 2 6 foot sections for big jobs and 2 3 foot sections for backpacking, so I will definitely be trying it eventually.

An arced rail wouldn't work for the stage zero dolly, because it uses the linear grooves to slide through. There are no wheels or bearings, just some plastic wedges that fit into the grooves. There is a great way to get panning shots, and its known the merlin head. There are several different models of these that can be controlled by the MX2 controller, but it adds two axis of motion, so you can pan and tilt as the dolly moves down the track.

Not sure if you're familiar with timescapes.org, but its pretty much the ocn of timelapse. tons of DIY builds and information, but they have a subsection just for the DP stage zero...I would link it but the site seems to be down now.

Hope that helps:D

Added a Telescope head for pan/tilt and sleeved the cables. Also bought two gorilla pod s for low shots and grabbing ledges.

Thanks. I'm bummed right now cause my camera isnt getting the signal for some reason. I can get the dolly and head to do the movements, but for some reason my d90 won't shoot. I have tried multiple cables and even got a replacement mx2 from dynamic perception.

So im thinking it may be my camera's remote input port, which would suck.

Really excited to get this thing rollin, but got to figure that out first.

Also excited because the telescope head I just added can also be used for panarama/gigapixel photos
