I have spent the last few days working on the content for my presentation at the HDSLR conference at the Montreal Final Cut Pro user group.
We have a lot of great sponsors who sent us gear to test and I would like to thank them: Lozeau (camera store in Montreal who loan us a lot of stuff), Zacuto (for a Marksman and Sharp shooter) and Shape… (Sumo shoulder rig).
Welcome to the last section of the part 2 of the Gorilla rigs review. Due to technical issues with one of my 5DMrkII, this review will not contain the video I had planned to shoot for it (sorry!).
Meet the Tactical Shooter
The Tactical shooter… is the big daddy of the Gorilla set.
As people are receiving their Z-Finder, reviews are popping everywhere on the net. The first one coming (that I am aware of) from M. Bloom and now there is one more from Mitch. As you could have guessed if you have been following my Gorilla rigs review…, I am going to review it too.
This is the second post in the part 2 review of the Zacuto Gorilla rigs. You can look at the review of the Rapid Fire here.
Meet the Quick Draw
The first time I saw the Quick draw… in the Zacuto promo video, the thing that came to my mind was “WTF?”.
In this second part of the review, we are going to look at what are the differences between the various rigs, how they affect their uses and what are their strong points.
To save you from reading a long posts, I have spread this part in three articles.…
Now that I have a tactical shooter, I can finally do a full review of the three Gorilla gunstock models offered by Zacuto: The Rapid Fire, The Quickdraw and The Tactical shooter… (which is a combo of the two). Hopefully, by the end of the review you will be able to figure out if you want a Gorilla rig and most importantly, which one will fit your needs.
