Rigging the REDCAM on a Ronin to record recreation for Tourism Saskatchewan.
Topics: Java Blog
When one ventures in the majestic wilderness of central and northern Saskatchewan, one may wish to pack a variety of camping and sporting equipment: a tent, a camp stove, a canoe, fishing poles, etc.
Or you could do it the Java Post Production way: book yourself into a nice lodge and bring along a bunch of high-tech camera gear, which - while being incredibly useful for capturing gorgeous images for our friends at Phoenix Group and Tourism Saskatchewan - is pretty much useless for catching fish or toasting marshmallows over a crackling camp fire. (Well, we suppose one COULD use some camera gear for toasting marshmallows, but you could only do it once.)

Greg's got a REDCAM mounted on Java Post's DJI Ronin hand-held camera stabilization rig, which is in turn suspended by Java's body-mounted Atlas Camera Support. You know...the usual stuff you take to a fishing lodge.
You just know that all the other tourists at the lodge are looking at Greg and going "He's never going to catch any fish with that rig."
