If you are in London this next week then you can attend the UK’s first opportunity to try out the new Master Cinema Series of rigs. Designed by Hollywood DOP Shane Hurlbut and manufactured by Letus Corporation the rigs have been causing a stir in Hollywood lately. Shane has very kindly sent one his rigs over to the UK for me to check out. Being a sharing soul I’ve decided to run a Dslrnewsshooter.com event at the Jacobs Pro Lounge in New Oxford Street for others who also want a chance to try it.
The event is on Monday the 31st October from 10.30AM until 4PM. I’ll be on hand in the Pro Lounge with the rig the whole time. Store location info is here.
I have long believed that Shane’s ideas on how to move a DSLR camera and achieve balance are the right way to go. The Master Cinema Series puts all his ideas into practice and from what I have seen so far I am deeply impressed – but don’t take it from me, come along and try for yourself.
For the record I am in no way affiliated with Shane or Letus corporation and am not being paid to run this event. I do believe that anyone who is prepared to put so much time and energy into creating a product like this deserves attention – that’s why I am happy to look at it myself and also give others the chance to make their own opinions too.
