For those of you shooting car chase scenes or filming car commercials, we've got a new product from DitoGear for you the Lifter.
Admittedly this is a niche product, but after poking around at NAB several weeks ago, I saw several vendors with car rigging systems on display and therefore i'm sure many of you will be interested in this announcement.
And I suspect many of those products at NAB were likely more expensive as well. I know I stopped in one booth and asked about pricing and was told they started in the $50k range.
The Lifter – which is an add-on to their VibraFreek is only $4,829.59
If you're in any situation where you're needing to shoot vehicles and need some vertical motion, here's your answer!
