Well I gave up on trying to engineer a boom myself because of issues i was running into. Picked up a great 20 foot boom from RigPro and had a chance to test it out on a friends old Mercedes. This new boom is so much more stable than my creation allowing me to get much better shots. I also for the first time had the rig out in daylight and got some really great looking pictures with awesome motion blur! Head over to my Rig Shot gallery to see my latest testing, and more to come!
