Custom armatures

Hi Guys, So I've been in to stop motion for quite a while but also work in engineering. I was wondering if there was any call for custom made to measure armature services and if anyone on here would be interested in them? The more complex the better to get me started. If there is a mechanism or armature which you are wanting please message me and I will make a prototype for my own practice and may consider sending out at expense. I'm going to be using brazing, soldering, rapid prototyping and…See More

Devil armature quick assembly

"before using silicone or foam latex did you foam any of the body or cover the joints, if so what did you use? (I'm not sure what to do on my own is why I'm asking) Thanks for your help!"

Benédict Bevan replied to Brian's discussion Whats your thoughts on a used camera?
"well the thing of it is the live view is just so that you can see whereabout you've moved things within the frame so no matter what the noise is as long as the EOS setting are correct you should be able to get a show without the noise on the…"

Benédict Bevan replied to Brian's discussion Whats your thoughts on a used camera?
"Well you'd use the sensor of the EOS camera for the actual shots, however you use the webcam for the live view feed as the camera doesnt actually operate a live view itself. look at this link to see what i mean a bit better, it can be a bit…"

Benédict Bevan replied to Brian's discussion Whats your thoughts on a used camera?
"you could probably get an EOS 350D (fairly low res at 6mp ) use your webcame on to the viewfinder for a live feed, and then for lens get a vintage olympus macro OM lens and converter all in all that should be under your budget with the bonus of…"
