I want to talk a little about the filmmaking tool call The Fat Gecko Daul – Suction Camera Mount. I orded this equipment from B&H video to use in an upcoming car commercial. I was a little skeptical about using this being that I wanted to film with my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, now this would be fine with just the Blackmagic camera with no cage or any other gear to rig it out and add to its weight. I also though about using my Canon 5D III, but opted to use my Sony Nex 7. I have to say that I was really pleased with this device. Even with the Rokinon Cine DS 50MM Lens attached.
