Hi,

 

In the Rivera project I saw a custom (?) lens collar to turn the camera (or lens?) for the 90° and 270° pictures.

 Can you show us how it looks like, or give us some clues how to build one?

 

Thanks

Dominique

This was built from a panorama head that we had in the studio.  So, it is a custom thing.  Marlin can comment on the parts he used. The idea was to be able to turn the camera 90 degrees in either direction without changing the camera position right or left or up or down  - so that it remained centered between the lights.  I'm attaching a photo of the rig.

If you've the time and opportunity, could we see some better images that better shows how it is. Even some references of make or other specification would be helpfull. Thanks

Marlin has better images and he built the rig.  He's on holiday until after the new year.  I'm sure he'll add to this discussion after that.
