Got some fun with ... hey.. ink again :D
This time it's a copy of the slow mo guys Hypnotic Ink video... for testing reasons.

In Future I will be shooting in RAW, hoping that I can get way better colors and contrast a.s.o.

having a gun sight on the camera makes following a target super easy!

Sounds very interesting. Can you show us what you made there?

The reflex sight is an Amazon special, not the cheapest one but it's not made for a real gun. To mount it I drilled a 1/4" hole in "gun rail" which is used for mounting hardware on to guns, and ground down a 1/4-20 screw to sit as flush as possible with the top of the rail. If the head sticks up too far the sight won't mount properly. There are kits that let you mount gun rail to a hot shoe (camera flash mount) and kits that let you mount a hot shoe to a 1/4-20 hole but the taller your mounting setup the more parallax error you will get and the less stable it will all be.

Every time I shoot the sight has to be adjusted, it moves a little while being transported but mostly it's to account for the range of distances I am shooting that day. By picking a spot midway through the field and centering on that it is pretty accurate as long as I remember to aim high for close subjects and low for distant ones. If you are going to film fast moving subjects it is worth the $30.

What Lens is That?
Looks like 400mm or so?

Yeah, its a 400mm f6.3 non-telephoto lens. Being f6.3 makes it only good for very bright sunlight but it is not heavy compared to telephoto lenses so I always keep it in my kit.

Ok, for that kind of Focal Length on that small Sensor, you would propably want a gun sight.
Would be kind of difficult without i guess.
Thanks for the reply.

Couple of videos as we really start doing doing some cinematic and industrial work with the 1.4

Ar500 target testing and glass armor testing. The target testing saved the company more than a few dollars when they saw bullet spall being cast out to the front due to some basic plate misalignment, it was corrected before production saving thousands of dollars in recalls.

More dramatic footage of a pistol draw as marketing for the training possibilities of the 1.4

Another turkey vulture but this time saved in raw. Next step for sure is building a portable battery/psu so I can get an hour or two of recording and saving time.
